The first poster of Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer "Phantom" was released recently in which both the lead actors were seen blindfolded with a tricolour. However, the poster was earlier rejected by the Censor Board as it featured the Indian flag.
The Indian flag was used to blindfold Saif and Katrina in the actual "Phantom" poster, but the Censor Board did not approve the same and suggested that it should be changed to a single coloured cloth. However, makers of the film felt that using a single colour will not create the desired impact and hence, they decided to remove the Ashoka chakra from the flag in the poster, following which it was passed by the Censor Board.
Directed by Kabir Khan, "Phantom" has managed to create a lot of buzz when the first look of Saif and Katrina was released, in which both were seen in an action avatar. And now, makers of the movie have released the first poster that is more interesting. The movie is supposed to be an adaptation of S Hussain Zaidi's novel "Mumbai Avengers" and is based on the concept of global terrorism.
After the release of the first poster, fans are eagerly waiting for the launch of the film's trailer. This is the second time that Saif and Katrina will be seen together; "Race", which was a hit, being their first film together. Now, a lot of expectations are associated with "Phantom", which will be a hardcore action drama.
Apart from India, the film was extensively shot at various foreign locations, including lebabon, Syria, UK and Canada, and is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.
