Blockbuster filmmaker, Ali Abbas Zafar, who is known for delivering hits like Tiger Zinda Hai, Sultan and Bharat, has confirmed that he is set to make his own superhero universe starting the first part with Katrina Kaif starrer. The director confirmed this news to Mumbai Mirror, “Yes, I am creating a superhero universe, beginning with Katrina’s film. We then move to Mr India, which will carry forward bits from Katrina’s film, and we are developing two more characters. My third superhero is rooted in Indian mythology and the fourth comes from the Indian army.”
Talking about his highly-anticipated Mr India, Ali said, “My Mr India is neither a remake nor a reboot of the original film. It’s a completely new film, we are just calling it Mr India. My film is essentially about the common man fighting a mighty villain, but done in a cool, hip way, using science and technology and being relevant to today’s social scenario.” The filmmaker is currently working on the script of the film. “I hope to return to Mumbai with the script of Mr India,” said Zafar.
When asked whether he will collaborate with Salman or not, he replied, “I have been working on Mr India since the last two years. I was committed to doing it long before Bharat. Ditto, Katrina’s film. But yes, I love him like an elder brother and will work with him again, very soon.” Katrina Kaif will be next seen in Sooryavanshi, which also features Akshay Kumar, Jaaved Jaaferi, Gulshan Grover, Kumud Mishra, Abhimanyu Singh, Vivan Bhatena and Sikander Khan, with special appearances from Ajay Devgn as Singham and Ranveer Singh as Simmba. The film was supposed to release on March 24 but has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. It’s been bankrolled under the banners of Rohit Shetty Picturez, Dharma Productions and Cape Of Good Films.
