Bollywood has seen itself growing over the years with movies on the different types of topic, there is one department it is still lacking in is superheroes. Apart from 'Krrish', Bollywood hasn't been able to produce other superheroes despite plenty of attempts in the past to impress the audience.
Now, Ali Abbas Zafar is looking to change that and going to make his own superhero universe starting with a project with Katrina Kaif. In an interview with a leading daily, the director of blockbusters Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai, Bharat and others have confirmed that he is in the process of developing a superhero universe and it will kick off with Katrina’s film with him.
He said, "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."
Ali Abbas Zafar also talked about the news of a remake of Mr. India. The director said that he does not intend to play with the original Mr. India in any way.
"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," Ali said.
Bollywood has always been a lack of superhero films. Now, after hearing this news, the Hindi film fraternity and the fans would be happy that Ali Abbas Zafar is taking the initiative.
