Bollywood director Ali Abbas Zafar is reportedly planning to make a superhero film. Zafar, who has worked with Katrina and her superstar boyfriend Salman Khan in other blockbusters, confirmed in an interview that his “superhero” film is actually a “super heroine” project.

As soon as the rumors were confirmed, Bollywood enthusiasts from around the world began cheering on the upcoming film, the name of which remains a secret. The majority of netizens seemed in favor of the choice of actress for India’s first ever foray into a world saved by women super heroines.

​The 38-year old director revealed that he is already in talks with “international teams” via video calls. The cast of the film, which has not been revealed completely, is rehearsing lines using virtual means, the media reported.

The film's team is waiting for the coronavirus situation to normalize before they can begin their groundwork on the movie.

With her previous performances, especially through dances, Katrina has impressed her fans and proven that she is flexible and fast.

The 36-year-old beauty, who was born in the UK to an English mother and Kashmiri father, entered the Indian film industry way back in 2003 and has featured in at least 45 films since then.

Previously, B-town's green-eyed hunk Hrithik Roshan portrayed India's first ever silver screen superhero, called "Krrish".
