Katrina Kaif refused to become 'Half Girlfriend' of Arjun Kapoor? Here's why

New Delhi: Bollywood stunner Katrina Kaif rocked her fans with 'Kala Chashma' in 'Baar Baar Dekho', and no doubt she inspired many to get that hourglass figure. Kat obviously has an ocean of fan following, and who wouldn't want to see her on-screen. 

But do you know Kat was the first choice to play 'Half Girlfriend' initially and not Shraddha Kapoor. Yes! True that. But, she denied being cast against Arjun Kapoor. Shocking, isn't it?

According to a report in BollywoodLife.com, originally attributed to Rajeev Masand’s column, ''Mohit had his heart set on casting Katrina in this love story adapted from the Chetan Bhagat bestseller. But Katrina, who reportedly liked the script, recommended that he cast another actress because she felt her “screen age” could hurt the film," quoted the report.

Katrina has worked superstars such as Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan who are much older than her. So, she felt that casting her opposite Arjun would not look convincing.

Although Kat is much younger than her screen age, and despite her liking the script she felt that it won't be right for the film and recommended the director to cast another face.

Mohit was touched by her thought and finalised Shraddha for the respective role.

The movie is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel by the same name and will be released early next year!
