Tigers (initially titled White Lies)is an upcoming Indian-International film directed by Danis Tanovic, starring Emraan Hashmi. The film’s music will be composed by Pritam.

Maryam d’Abo (born 27 December 1960) is an English film and television actress, best known as Bond girl Kara Milovy in the 1987 James Bond film The Living Daylights.
The film is a joint production between Cinemorphic, French production company ASAP Films and Sikhya Entertainment.
In 1982, d’Abo made her screen debut in the successful low-budget science fiction horror film Xtro, playing Analise Mercier, a French au pair, who becomes a human incubator for an alien.
She appeared in the 1984 film Until September, and the following year, she had small roles in White Nights and Arthur the King.
In 1987, she starred in The Living Daylights as Kara Milovy, the sweet and vulnerable Czechoslovakian cellist and sniper who falls for James Bond. As a tie-in with the film, she also appeared in a Bond-themed Playboy cover and multi-page pictorial in the September 1987 issue, but later said “I wouldn’t do those pictures now… I’ve learned a lot since then” in an interview with People.
In 1988, she had a well-received role as Ta’Ra, an alien medical officer in the science fiction TV miniseries Something is Out There, which was followed by a six-episode NBC mini-series by the same name.
In 1990 she played Anne Summerton in the TV adaptation of Jeffrey Archer’s novel Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less, starring Ed Asner and directed by Clive Donner.
In 1992, she had a supporting role as a pretentious stained-glass artist in the quirky, low-budget British comedy Leon the Pig Farmer, which enjoyed a positive reception at film festivals in Venice, London, Edinburgh, and Palm Springs, California. In 1994, she appeared in The Browning Version, directed by Mike Figgis.
Since then, she has had roles in various low-budget, straight-to-video action, horror and fantasy films such as Tomcat: Dangerous Desires (1992), as well as guest roles on television shows Tales From the Crypt (1993), Red Shoe Diaries (1992), Murder, She Wrote (1992).
She reunited with her James Bond director John Glen for a guest-starring role on the television series Space Precinct and for the feature film The Point Men (2001). Glen later claimed that the reason he cast her in three different projects was because she was one of his favourite actresses. She played the mother of Lara (played by Keira Knightley) in the 2002 TV miniseries version of Doctor Zhivago, and she was Queen Hecuba in the Emmy-nominated miniseries Helen of Troy (2003). In 2005, she had a small role in the well-received French film L’Enfer (Hell), co-written by Krzysztof Kieslowski and starring Emmanuelle Béart and Carole Bouquet (also a Bond girl).
In 2002, d’Abo co-wrote the book Bond Girls Are Forever, a tribute to the women who have played the role of a Bond Girl. The book formed the basis for a documentary, featuring d’Abo and other famed Bond girls, including Ursula Andress. The documentary appeared on the American AMC network in 2002, timed to coincide with the theatrical release of Die Another Day. It was later included as a gift with the purchase of Die Another Day on DVD by some retailers. In 2006, a new version of the documentary, updated to include interviews with cast from Casino Royale (2006) was again aired on the AMC network and later released as a bonus feature on the March 2007 Blu-ray Disc and DVD release.
