This will be my chance to shoot India’s first female super-hero films in locations never seen before in an Indian film.”
As for being stationed in Dubai, Zafar says it’s a matter of convenience. “My crew and I are able to plan and function without any disturbance.“We shifted base for preparation.Because the film has an international crew. While the shooting is in Abu Dhabi we are working on our pre-production from here in Dubai.It is a team of around twenty of us working here in Dubai,” says Ali Abbas Zafar.
