Katrina Kaif's superhero movie to be titled 'Super Soldier'
Katrina Kaif is all set to star in Bollywood's first-ever female superhero flick. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film has been titled Super Soldier and will showcase Katrina in a never-seen-before avatar. Katrina and Zafar have previously worked together on movies like Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Tiger Zinda Hai, and Bharat. Here is more on this.
The movie is expected to go on floors next year
Zafar had been on the hunt for shoot locations since September; the makers have now finalized Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Poland, Georgia, and Uttarakhand. As per reports, the shoot is expected to begin after Katrina wraps up Phone Bhoot and Tiger 3. However, Katrina has already started preparing for the action-packed role.
Katrina to train in martial arts as part of preparations
Katrina will reportedly undergo martial arts training before the movie enters the production stage. Talking about the project, Zafar had earlier told The Times of India, "My film demands an elaborate set-up. We will take it on floors only next year...She [Katrina] has been working out to maintain her agility, but as soon as she allots her dates, we will begin her physical preparation."
Don't need a male hero in the film: Zafar
In fact, Zafar had earlier revealed that no male hero would be cast opposite Katrina. "I don't need a man opposite Katrina Kaif in this film. She herself is the hero as well. This film will be mounted on a huge scale and will be very new and different. Katrina won't have a romantic track in it," he said.
Katrina has three films scheduled for release next year
Meanwhile, Katrina is pretty occupied on the work front. Apart from the superhero movie, she will be seen in Akshay Kumar-starrer Sooryavanshi. The film was initially slated to be released in March this year but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sooryavanshi, horror-comedy Phone Bhoot, and Tiger 3 opposite Salman Khan are slated for a 2021 release.
