Post successful hits like Tiger Zinda hai and Bharat, it’s safe to say that movies directed by Ali Abbas Zafar are ones to look forward to. Very recently, the talented film-maker had announced that he would love to collaborate with Katrina Kaif on Bollywood’s maiden female superhero film. Yet another one with Katrina Kaif and we can vouch for the success of this film already. This will be followed by Mr. India, also a superhero film that will be set against the backdrop of science fiction. The scripting of the two films is in its work in progress stage for now.
Apart from this, we’ve learned that Ali Abbas Zafar has secretly started shooting a feature film that’s starring Diljit Dosanjh. The film is said to be a humane story set against the Sikh Riots that happened back in 1984. As per a reliable source, the film is a feature film that’s being shot for OTT platforms. It’s been a month since the shooting now. Some scenes will be shot in real locations in Delhi. He adds, “Ali was initially planning to just produce the film, he was completely immersed in the scripting process and as the story took its final shape, he decided to even step in as the film’s director too.”
Diljit who has previously done a lot of comedy roles will now be seen in a different avatar and we cannot wait. We’re also looking forward to some cool BTS action straight from the location. Soon after this is completed, Ali will begin shooting his next with Katrina titled – Super Soldier. The tentative times for the shoot to go on floors in September/October 2021. As per the source, “Ali is ready with the script of both Super Soldier and Mr. India, and with ample of free time in hand, he decided to take the responsibility of making a feature film for the digital platform with Diljit. From Summer, he will be completely occupied with the pre-production of Super Soldier, as he is planning to mount it on a big scale and the filmmaking process will be heavy on visual effects.”
Hands down, 2021 is looking good already, right? 😉
