Katrina Kaif was in the news a couple of weeks ago because rumors said she’s signed up her first horror movie. Those rumors had a very short shelf life, but they reached the IHC HQ as well. Its been some time that there’s no update on that aspect. But Bollywood Hungama has just revealed that Kat and Ali Abbas Zafar are reuniting for a superhero movie. Ali’s writing the script and Katrina will, obviously, the mainstay of the movie.
Abbas and Katrina have earlier worked together for Mere Brother ki Dulhan and Tiger Zinda Hai. The latter was an out and out action movie and Katrina had some action scenes as well. The report also says that Zafar and Katrina are looking to make this a franchise and not a one-off movie.
If this happens, Katrina Kaif becomes the first post-modern female superhero in Bollywood. She also joins the shortlist of female superheroes in Bollywood, including Hunterwali. And while Kimi Katkar and Govinda’s superhero run doesn’t count, you can still watch the video here for nostalgia sake:
I am liking the idea that Bollywood is waking up to the female superhero. That’s after Hollywood came up with the first Wonder Woman movie and the second one is about to hit theaters. What worries me is whether someone mistook the superhero movie news to be a horror movie news. That’d mean that there was never a Katrina Kaif Bollywood horror movie in place. That’s a shame. \
