The good news today is, Katrina Kaif and megastar Amitabh Bachchan might collaborate for a father-daughter drama to be directed by Vikas Bahl. The two have reportedly already given a nod to the film and below are all the details you would want to know about the film.
If the reports are to be believed, tentatively titled Deadly, the film is pitched around a funeral and traces the journey of its lead character with humour intact. A source close to the development was quoted in Mumbai Mirror saying, “The film is tentatively titled Deadly as the story is centred around a funeral. Katrina loved the basic premise, which essentially traces the protagonist’s journey of self-discovery with humourous undertones, and gave an instant go-ahead to Vikas.”
The report also claims that the film was supposed to kick off from May 2020 but the Coronavirus outbreak has pushed the schedule. Katrina will be going under multiple reading sessions as her character is multi-layered and needs her to dig her teeth deep.
“She is looking to push the envelope and explore new genres in this phase of her career which, in a way, is a journey of self- discovery too,” said the source.
The film has a father-daughter narrative that highlights the story and who better than Amitabh Bachchan to play the part. The source said, “Vikas and Katrina have discussed the central character of the father with Amitabh Bachchan who has shown a keen interest in doing the film. However, he is yet to sign on the dotted line.”
The further casting for the film is still due and will only begin after the pandemic subsides and the shut down is lifted.
Meanwhile, Katrina has a good lineup with the supernatural drama alongside Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday, the third film in her hit Tiger franchise and Ali Abbas Zafar female Super-hero film. As for Big B, the megastar is working to the max as he has a kitty overflowing with films. The actor will be seen in Brahmastra, Jhund, Gulabo Sitabo, Chehere and now Deadly.
