According to the buzz, Kabir Khan’s movie might be called Daniyal Khan as Saif’s character is called Daniyal in the film. Whereas Katrina’s name apparently is Nawab in the film.

The first schedule has just finished in Beirut and the second schedule will start in mid-November in Mumbai itself. The movie apparently is based on the 9/11 attacks and will be shot in London, America, Mumbai and Ferozepur, Punjab.

Though director Kabir Khan clearly denied the rumour that the movie is based on 9/11, he replied via sms saying, “The movie is definitely not based on 9/11.”

When asked if the makers are thinking of changing the title towards the release of the film, he said, “Sorry no quotes on a story based on conjecture.”

Whereas our source maintains, “Right now the title is Phantom and they are planning to change it once the film is complete or will probably announce it close to the release of the film.”
