While the noble Corona Virus Outbreak in India has delayed Katrina Kaif's upcoming movie Sooryavanshi, the actress has already signed her next.

As per a Mumbai Mirror report, the film will be a "slice-of-life" comedy, and is being helmed by Super 30 director Vikas Bahl, who was accused of sexual harassment by one of the female members of hsi crew at Phantom films.

However, a source close to the development has denied the reports as baseless. "We are undergoing a crisis situation with the outbreak of a virus that has affected the entire world. Our priority right now should be the health and safety of others. This is not the time for announcements or any other baseless Stories alike," the source was quoted.

As per the same report, Katrina was expected to be playing a multi-layered character for this one. “She is looking to push the envelope and explore new genres in this phase of her career which, in a way, is a journey of self- discovery too," a source told the daily.

Amitabh Bachchan was also said to be coming together with the duo, and had shown keen interest to play the father. "Vikas and Katrina have discussed the central character of the father with Amitabh Bachchan who has shown a keen interest in doing the film. However, he is yet to sign on the dotted line. But there’s a delay in both production and casting given the virtual shutdown of the film industry at the moment.”
