Instead of directing the film himself, the Chopra scion has decided to rope in his trusted assistant Ali Abbas Zafar as a director for Katrina Kaif starrer untitled project.
A source said, “Ali has already assisted Shaad Ali on Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, Vijay Krishna Acharya on Tashan, Kabir Khan on New York and Parmeet Sethi on Badmaash Company. Adi has immense trust in him and wanted him to helm a film. The script is by Adi himself and he has assigned Ali to direct the film for him. There is word that Katrina Kaif has already signed on while talks are on with a top star to play the main lead.”
When contacted, YRF’s official spokesperson confirmed to Mumbai Mirror, “Yes, Yash Raj Films is launching Ali Abbas Zafar as a director. However, the artistes for the film have still not been completely locked in. We will be making an announcement soon.”
