Katrina Kaif and Saif Ali Khan in 'Phantom'Facebook

After blockbuster hit "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" with Salman Khan, director Kabir Khan will soon be back with his next release "Phantom" starring Katrina Kaif and Saif Ali Khan in the lead.

The director recently released the first look poster of the film on his Twitter handle, where the glamorous Katrina and Bollywood hunk Saif are seen blindfolded with an Indian flag and both have bruises on their faces.

Coming soon... PHANTOM

Based on Hussain Zaidi's novel "Mumbai Avengers", "Phantom" is about the aftermath of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and deals with global terrorism.

The film, which is slated to release on 28 August, is a joint production of Sajid Nadiadwala and Siddharth Roy Kapur. The trailer of the film will be revealed on 25 July.

Apparently, the lead pair will be playing secret agents in the film. This is the second time Saif and Katrina are sharing screen space after Abbas-Mustan's blockbuster "Race" (2008).

However, it will be interesting to see Kareena Kapoor's husband romancing her brother Ranbir Kapoor's girlfriend on-screen.

Meanwhile, Katrina will also be seen with her lover boy Ranbir in "Jagga Jasoos" and with Aditya Roy Kapur in "Fitoor."
