On the film front, Kabir Khan will direct Ranveer Singh starrer '83', based on legendary cricketer Kapil Dev.
Mumbai: Some time back, it was learnt that filmmaker Kabir Khan is all set to direct his first web series, which will touch base upon Subhash Chandra Bose’s ‘Indian National Army’. The upcoming web series is titled 'The Forgotten Army'. Before marking his Bollywood debut with ‘Kabul Express’, he started out as a documentary filmmaker.
It was then speculated that his close friend and actress Katrina Kaif would play a pivotal role in this web series. Even Shah Rukh Khan’s name popped up in the lead role. According to a source close to the actress, “Rumors of Katrina Kaif doing this web series with Kabir Khan is absolutely false. Neither the makers nor Kabir ever approached the actress for any role in the web series.”
Kabir has directed Katrina in ‘New York’ (2009), ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ (2012) and ‘Phantom’ (2015) earlier. Katrina also played pivotal roles in Ali Abbas Zafar’s debut film ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ (2011), who has been assisting Kabir since past few years, and the sequel to ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ titled ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ which released on Christmas 2017.
On the film front, Kabir Khan will direct Ranveer Singh starrer '83', who will be stepping in the shoes of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev in the film. '83' is scheduled to release on 05 April, 2019.
