Bollywood filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar made it to the headlines for all the wrong reasons after he announced the remake of Mr India and turning it into a franchise. After the director threatened to go legal, against Zee Studios and director Ali Abbas Zafar, he reportedly dropped the project and moved on to a similar genre and guess what… He has also confirmed his leading lady.
A report in Bollywood Hungama quoted a source close to Mr. India saying, “They never expected such a hue and cry over the Mr. India franchise. After Mr. India’s director Shekhar Kapur decided to sue them, Zee Studios and Ali Abbas Zafar quietly dropped Mr. India and decided to do something else.”
The report also mentioned that the Zee Studios and Ali Abbas Zafar team has now decided to make a super-hero film with Katrina Kaif in the lead. When contacted Ali Abbas Zafar, he confirmed the project with Katrina.
For the unversed, Kaif and Zafar are very close friends from the time he made his directorial debut with Mere Brother Ki Dulhan in 2011 in which she played the female lead. The two were seen collaborating for Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat, both co-starring Salman Khan.
With her pal teaming up with Zee Studios, Katrina will soon start training to do the stunts. She is all set to be the desi Gal Gadot. And we can’t wait to see her fly.
Meanwhile, Katrina’s fallout with director Rohit Shetty has milled a lot of controversies. The Sooryavanshi director came under scanner for his comments about actress Katrina Kaif and the two did not seem to be on talking terms.
