Saif and Katrina in Phantom trailer: A heady mix of action and patriotism


After achieving success at the box office with his last release Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kabir Khan is now all set with his upcoming film Phantom, starring Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. The trailer of the film was released a while back, and the cast and crew launched the same at an event in Mumbai on Saturday afternoon.

In the trailer of Phantom, Saif and Katrina are seen in rough-and-tough avatars with an unrest-torn backdrop. Saif’s character in the film has only one goal to achieve: Taking on the mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. The trailer poses a question, too. Saif says, “If America can get justice by killing Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan, why can’t India do the same?”

The film has incorporated 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s original speech in the trailer of Phantom. Saeed is seen saying, “Kya tumne yeh saabit kar diya ki Mumbai hamla Hafiz Saeed ne kiya tha?” Hafiz Saeed is the leader of Jamaat-ud-Dawa, a political party in Pakistan. He is said to be the man behind the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and the 13/12 Parliament attacks.

The film has been extensively shot in Beirut, Lebanon. Apart from Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif, Phantom also stars popular Bengali actor Sabyasachi Chakrabarty and Zeeshan Ayyub. Right after its release, the trailer of Phantom has attracted much comparison with earlier espionage thrillers like Baby, which released in January this year, and the 2013 D-Day
