Following the success of his latest release Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Directror Kabir Khan is back with his latest project.
‘Phantom’, a political thriller, is based on the 26/11 Mumbai attacks which stars Katrina Kaif and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles.
It is set in the volatile climate that exists in South Asia. Constant terror attacks against India have left the Indian people feeling vulnerable and angry. The Indian government and security agencies are helpless as the masterminds of the attacks are out of reach. When an infiltrator with plans to attack India is caught, the Head of India’s security agency and his team take matters into their own hands. The film follows the protagonist Daniyal, whose journey to seek justice takes him to India, Europe, America and the volatile Middle East. Local assets in various countries help Daniyal, including Nawaz Mistry who works for an American security agency. Daniyal and Nawaz are drawn into a battle of wits with a shrewd and ruthless enemy. With the enemy hot on their heels, Daniyal and Nawaz against all odds try and finish the job they had set out to do. Along the way they find out that in a mission like this there is always a price to pay, in this case a very personal price.
The movie has been produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, and is based on bestselling author, Hussain Zaidi’s book Mumbai Avengers.
It will hit the screens on August 28th.
