‘Tiger 3’ is one of most-awaited movies to come out of Bollywood in 2023. Salman Khan fans have been waiting eagerly to see the ‘bhai’ of B-town once again bash the villains. Salman’s character Avinash Singh Rathore a.k.a ‘Tiger’ is set to thrill fans once again across the country. The new Hindi movie will hit the theatres on November 12, but before that promotions for the new Hindi movie are in full swing. On Thursday, Salman Khan revealed that the first song from ‘Tiger 3’ will be releasing on October 23. This will be the first time that Arijit Singh will be singing for Salman Khan, and this has only increased the anticipation for the song.

“Pehle gaane ki pehli jhalak. #LekePrabhuKaNaam! Oh haan, yeh hai Arijit Singh ka pehla gaana mere liye. Song out on 23rd Oct,” Salmam Khan wrote on Twitter, along with a poster featuring him and Katrina Kaif. 

“#Tiger3 coming to theatres this Diwali, 12th Nov. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu,” he added.

For the unversed, a cold war broke out between Salman Khan and Arijit Singh in 2014. 

It all started when Arijit Singh took to the stage to receive his award, wearing a chappal. 

Salman Khan, who was hosting the show, poked fun at him, saying, "So gaye the?" 

"Aap logon ne sula diya," Arijit Singh shot back. 

Salman Khan seemed to get irked by this comment, and said that it is not his fault that songs like 'Tum Hi Ho' keep on playing. 

Following this tit for tat, many reports emerged that Arijit Singh's songs were removed from Salman Khan's movies including 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', 'Kick' and 'Sultan'. 

In 2016, Arijit Singh had even issued a public apology to Salman Khan, requesting him to retain his version of the song in 'Sultan.

Speaking about the collaboration between two of Bollywood’s most well-renowned artists, music composer Pritam said: “It was a collaboration that was waiting to happen. Salman Khan is one of the biggest superstars and Arijit Singh, our generation’s top singing sensation. These two stalwarts coming together for a song was long overdue and we are thrilled that it is happening for ‘Tiger 3’.”

‘Tiger 3’ director Maneesh Sharma revealed that ‘Leke Prabhu Ka Naam’ is a party track and backed it to become a chartbuster

“We can’t wait for ‘Leke Prabhu Ka Naam’ to drop next week. It’s an out and out party track and having Arijit’s voice on top of Salman’s swag, is the cherry on top. Katrina’s ethereal beauty and the chemistry between the two makes it the perfect formula to have everyone dancing. We had a lot of fun filming in Cappadocia, Turkey, and this will be another huge dance chartbuster to add to the already enviable list of successes that Salman and Katrina have had together,” he said.
