But for now, the latest update seems to be the exuberant budget of the film - Rs 90 crore.
As per a report by Pinkvilla, the superhero film will be made at a budget of Rs 90 crore, which still is quite a big amount for a female-led film in Bollywood.. "The film is being planned on a lavish scale and mounted on a grand canvas. They want to establish it into a franchise and for the first part starring Katrina, they are looking at making it at a whopping budget of Rs 90 crore," the entertainment portal quoted a source.
