The source added that Katrina , who has primarily enthralled fans as a mainstream star over her nearly-17-year career, is looking to experiment with new genres now and the project fits the bill at this point. The makers have reportedly approached Bachchan with an offer for the central role, and an official announcement of the project will be made soon as he gives a confirmation.

Incidentally, Katrina’s Bollywood debut film “Boom” (2003) also starred Big B as a protagonist. She also had a cameo in the Big B-starrer “Sarkar” (2005) and featured with Bollywood icon Big B and superstar Aamir Khan in “Thugs Of Hindostan” (2018).
