The sudden announcement of the lockdown has delayed many Bollywood projects. While there was news surrounding Katrina Kaif's superhero film on the Internet lately, Ali Abbas Zafar, who's the director of the film, has been apparently planning on releasing the film on the OTT platforms. Earlier this month, Ali told a leading daily, "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 one is on an army officer."
Even though the Sultan director has decided to stay quiet about the news, a source confirmed a leading website that the film is soon going to hit the digital platforms. "The superheroine film starring Katrina will mostly be her big digital debut. The film is being mounted on a lavish scale, and the team has struck a deal with Netflix with this being the first part of the franchise to be premiered on the digital platform. It won't have a theatrical release, but will be made for the web."
It further added, "Katrina is very kicked about the idea behind the project from the very beginning. She always wanted to do a full-fledged action film in the superhero genre and this is her big dream project. When Netflix decided to come on board, she was extremely happy because the film will now have a wider reach among a global audience base."
