Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film reportedly is an official adaptation of a 2014 South Korean film “Ode to My Father”. Few hours ago, Salman has shared a glimpse of the first looks of Katrina and himself on Instagram. It seems like Kat and Salman are standing on the Wagha Border, but interestingly, this isn’t the real Wagah Border in Amritsar. In the picture Salman can be seen wearing a suit, while Katrina is clad in a saree, a shawl and wavy hair.
Well before Katrina it was Priyanka Chopra who was supposed to play the lead role. But Pee Cee star left the film because she had an engagement with International singer Nick Jonas.
