Ali Abbas Zafar’s upcoming project with Diljit Dosanjh is reportedly being made for digital streaming giant, Netflix.
According to Bollywood Hungama, Zafar’s political drama with Dosanjh, will form a part of his three-project deal for Netflix.
Zafar is already heading a two-part female superhero film with Katrina Kaif, with a budget of Rs. 200 crore. After his next production ‘Khaali Peeli’, Zafar will produce a film with Dosanjh based on the 1984 Sikh riots.
A source told the publication, “Ali’s next production after Khaali Peeli is a period drama set against the backdrop of 1984 Punjab Riots featuring Diljit Dosanjh in lead. The script is locked and the film is all geared to go on the floors once normalcy kicks in.”
The source added, “Drama forms the core element of Diljit’s yet untitled film, and it falls in a zone that hasn’t been seen in any Bollywood film set against the backdrop of Sikh Riots. One of Ali’s assistant directors will helm the film. Everyone is excited to start shooting for the film.”
The projects are expected to arrive on Netflix next year.
