After setting the box office on fire with his last release Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kabir Khan is finally out with the dramatic trailer of his much-delayed film Phantom, reported.
The film is about Saif's quest to find and kill Hariz Saeed, a character based on Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed who India considers to be the mastermind of the 26/11 Mumbai attack.
Bruised, unkempt hair and blindfolded. That's what Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif looked like in the posters of the film shared by the director.

Since the first pictures from the film sets went viral in 2013, Phantom has created a frenzy among fans. The delay in the release of the film has kept the movie in headlines for past two years.
After Race 2, this is the second time that Katrina and Saif will share screen space. Phantom is a action-thriller in which Saif is playing a spy while Katrina will essay the role of a photo journalist.
