'Bharat' Director Ali Abbas Zafar’s next will be a superhero film with Katrina Kaif. But the one that comes after that has become an anticipated film already. That film is Mr India, which was first announced in February.

He has finally opened up about his upcoming projects. In a recent interaction with Mumbai Mirror, the filmmaker talked about his new project - Mr India.

The writer-director had announced this ambitious project on Twitter, which was criticised by the director of Mr India (1987), Shekhar Kapoor and even the writer Javed Akhtar. The original film starred Anil Kapoor, Sridevi and Amrish Puri.

Neither a Remake nor a Reboot of the original film:

Speaking about Mr India, the Bharat director told Mumbai Mirror, “My Mr India is neither a remake nor a reboot of the original film. It’s a completely new film, we are just calling it Mr India. My film is essentially about the common man fighting a mighty villain, but done in a cool, hip way, using science and technology and being relevant to today’s social scenario.”

The filmmaker then also confirmed that he is aiming at making a superhero universe with his upcoming films. He told the publication, “Yes, I am creating a superhero universe, beginning with Katrina’s film. We then move to Mr India, which will carry forward bits from Katrina’s film, and we are developing two more characters. My third superhero is rooted in Indian mythology and the fourth comes from the Indian army.”

Ali has also refuted the speculations that Mr India would feature Ranveer Singh and Shah Rukh Khan.
