Phantom is set in the aftermath of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and deals with global terrorism. The film is based on Hussain Zaidi's novel Mumbai Avengers. It was recently banned by a Pakistani court after Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed argued that it contained 'filthy propaganda' against him and his outfit
"The security of all our actors is extremely important for us and now that his identity is revealed, there are precautionary measures being taken," the film's spokesperson said in a statement. Starring Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif, Phantom has been banned in Pakistan after a petition was filed by Hafiz Saeed who is accused of masterminding the 26/11 Mumbai attacks
Filmmaker Kabir Khan's last film Ek Tha Tiger was about the life of a RAW agent. He is now set to cast actor Saif Ali Khan in a film about counter-terrorism post the 26/11 Mumbai attack.
Last weekend proved to be quite a disappointment at the box office as neither I, Me Aur Main nor The Attacks of 26/11 managed to garner any scores.
