Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif were confirmed to play the lead roles at a press conference held on May 3, 2011 at Yashraj Studios. It was scheduled to release on 1 June, 2012, but since Aamir Khan wanted to release his next film, directed by Reema Kagti, on 1st June, he requested Salman Khan & Aditya Chopra to shift Ek tha Tiger to accommodate this release. Given the close relationship and mutual respect Aamir Khan, Aditya Chopra and Salman Khan share, the release of Ek Tha Tiger is shifted to Eid 2012.
