A couple of weeks ago, filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar had announced that he would next work on a reboot version of iconic Bollywood film Mr. India (1987) and turn it into a franchise. But with the original team of the classic film threatening to take legal actions against the makers, producers Zee Studios and Ali Abbas Zafar have reportedly decided to put the project in cold storage.

“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,” a source in the know informs an entertainment portal.

Now, sources close to the development reveal that Zee Studios and Ali Abbas Zafar have decided to join forces to make a superhero film with a top actress. The project has been in news for quite some time now, with Katrina Kaif leading the race to bag the lead role in it. When Ali Abbas Zafar was contacted for the confirmation, he revealed that the project with Kaif is indeed in the works.

If the superhero film is indeed happening, it will mark Ali Abbas Zafar’s fourth collaboration with Katrina Kaif. He made his directorial debut with Yash Raj Films’ Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011), which featured Kaif as the leading lady. Afterwards, Zafar went on to direct Kaif in such blockbusters as Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) and Bharat (2019), both co-starring Salman Khan.

More updates on the upcoming project are expected to arrive soon.
