Bollywood director Ali Abbas Zafar confirmed that after working with Katrina Kaif in Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat, he is all set for a hat-trick of collaboration with the actress. He will be directing Katrina in India’s maiden female superhero film and he also confirmed that the script work is done, and he is currently designing the action with an international stunt team. Netflix has sanctioned Rs 80 to 85 crore to Ali for the first part of the film.
“It’s a massive film mounted on a never seen before scale for a female protagonist. Ali was very keen on making it as a feature film for the big screen, but he wasn’t able to raise the funds that were needed, following which he decided to go the OTT way. The filmmaker is of the belief that his next will be a game-changer of sorts for the genre and will pave way for many more women centric action films in Bollywood,” said a source,
Katrina’s other project is a horror comedy titled Phonebhoot also featuring Ishaan Khatter and Siddhant Chaturvedi.
