Katrina Kaif might be going to assume the hardest task of her career as she appears to have held hands with a director who’s known for his sensational works and solid female characters.

Katrina Kaif, who is one of the popular stars right now, will be seen in a female-oriented movie and the same is touted to be her toughest project so far. And she will be portraying this strong character in none other than R Balki’s next directorial. As per Bollywood Life’s report, Katrina has signed for R Balki’s next and she will be playing the lead role. The movie will be centered around a strong female-centric topic. And Katrina is all set to play the role and prepping up.

The project is expected to be centred on a strong female-centric subject, for which Katrina Kaif is apparently putting herself through the ringer to get everything right about the part. The report also states that megastar Amitabh Bachchan has also been roped in for the project to play an important cameo, which is not very surprising to be honest, given that the Big B has been a part of every R Balki directorial in some capacity or another, be it in a full-fledged role or fleeting appearance. He even won his third National Award for Balki’s Paa. It’ll also mark Katrina Kaif and Amitabh Bachchan’s fourth film together after Boom, Sarkar, and Thugs of Hindostan, out of which only the second one worked while the other two were both critical and commercial disasters. Let’s hope the fortunes this time are more in line with Sarkar.

Aside from this movie, R Balki is also gearing for up his next that features an ensemble cast. Recently, he made it official that his new movie will feature Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, Pooja Bhatt, and Shreya Dhanwanthary in lead roles. Talking about his new project, Balki revealed that he is excited to start shooting. He also said that he has not done a film in the thriller genre before and that’s why it is more interesting for him.
