Ali Abbas Zafar recently announced his female superhero film starring Katrina Kaif and it now seems, the filmmaker is working on something a lot more hard-hitting starring Diljit Dosanjh.
If reports are to be believed, Zafar is in talks with Dosanjh on a film based on the 1984 riots, which were triggered by the assassination of the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her two Sikh bodyguards.
A source told a leading publication said, “Ali has always been attracted to Indian history, both Gunday and Bharat grew from the past. He wanted to make a film around the ’84 riots for a while now and has finally found a subject that has him charged up. Besides producing the period-drama, he is also creatively involved with the script.”
The source added, “Ali and the team believe he is best suited to play the character and will bring in some local flavor too. Diljit has agreed verbally with a final narration scheduled in a few months. The idea is to roll as soon as normalcy returns.”
