Tiger returns to India and reports to his boss, Shenoy (Girish Karnad), in New Delhi. He is immediately sent on a mission to Dublin to observe a scientist of Indian origin, Professor Anwar Jamaal Kidwai (Roshan Seth), who teaches at Trinity College and is suspected of sharing his findings with the Pakistan defence establishment. Fellow RAW agent Gopi (Ranvir Shorey) accompanies Tiger on this mission. Tiger meets the scientist but fails to spend enough time for his observance, and instead begins to spend time with scientist's caretaker Zoya (Katrina Kaif), who is studying at a local dance academy. He tries to befriend Zoya to extract information, and he begins to discover his human side as he grows closer to her. Tiger is attacked and robbed at his residence by a person suspected to be an ISI agent. Gopi repeatedly warns Tiger not to fall in love with Zoya, but he does. Before telling her his feelings during a visit to dance academy, Tiger discovers that Zoya is an ISI Agent and refuses to commit treason on Pakistan when he asks. Instead of killing Zoya, Tiger lets her go.Some time later, Tiger and Zoya meet again at a UN Foreign Minister's Meet in Istanbul when Zoya signals him to come using a cryptic message. They decide to leave everything for their love and fool their respective agencies by taken their flight to Brazil, having told their agencies that they are in Kazakhstan. Some years later, their agencies trace Zoya and Tiger to Cuba, and the ISI agents catch Zoya. Tiger meets Gopi, who is searching for him for RAW, and having lied to Gopi that both Tiger and Zoya intend to return to India and cooperate with RAW, convinces Gopi to save Zoya from the ISI agents. Instead of returning to India, the pair escape aboard an aeroplane. Tiger calls Shenoy, who tells him that RAW will find both spies. Tiger tells Shenoy that they will return when when Pakistan and India no longer need ISI and RAW. In the epilogue, several images of Tiger and Zoya in cities including Cape Town, Zurich and London are shown, where sightings of them have been reported.
