Katrina Kaif and Saif Ali Khan are working together in a movie that has been tentatively titled Phantom. A political action drama, the movie focuses on the lesser known aspects of sub-continental politics and is based on a soon-to-be-released book by Hussain Zaidi; the same person who wrote the popular book on the underworld –From Dongri To Dubai.
Phantom will be directed by Kabir Khan, who worked with Katrina Kaif previously in movies like New York and Ek Tha Tiger. Commenting on the two actors, Kabir says “Saif is a superstar and a good actor. He’s intelligent and well-read; he’d also research international affairs. That’s very good for the film as the story moves from Beirut to the US to Kashmir and Punjab. Katrina has evolved as an actress since our first film together. She suits the character in Phantom perfectly.”
About the produder Sajid Nadiadwala, the director says, “I was looking for a producer who would back a film of this scale. Sajid has the ability and vision to ensure that there’s no compromise on the storytelling.”
Phantom is produced by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt Ltd and co-produced by UTV Motion Pictures.
