After their box office dud ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif will reportedly be coming together for Vikas Bahl’s next directorial tentatively titled ‘Deadly’.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, “The film is tentatively titled Deadly as the story is centred around a funeral. Katrina loved the basic premise, which essentially traces the protagonist’s journey of self-discovery with humourous undertones, and gave an instant go-ahead to Vikas.”
The source added, “It was supposed to kick off in May, but following the coronavirus scare across the world, the makers are waiting for things to settle down before heading for a recce. She is looking to push the envelope and explore new genres in this phase of her career which, in a way, is a journey of self- discovery too.”
The film is expected to go on the floors soon, once the coronavirus pandemic calms down. It is said that the relationship between father and daughter played by Bachchan and Kaif, will have an integral part in the narrative. The source said, “Vikas and Katrina have discussed the central character of the father with Amitabh Bachchan who has shown a keen interest in doing the film. However, he is yet to sign on the dotted line.”
