Mumbai: Katrina Kaif is busy shooting for Shah Rukh Khan starrer Zero, a film directed by Aanand L Rai. The pretty actress, who has been posting captivating pictures from the sets of the film, however, will not romance SRK. In fact, there’s another actor on board, reports suggest.
According to the latest buzz, Katrina has been paired with Abhay Deol, with whom she had shared screen space in Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Interestingly, Abhay had acted in Aanand L Rai’s Raanjhanaa so this collaboration comes as a pleasant surprise.
Zero, a film which also stars Anushka Sharma, will see SRK essaying the role of a man who is vertically challenged. The teaser of the film had grabbed people’s attention and moviegoers are looking forward to its release in December.
According to a report in Bollywoodlife.com, Anushka and Katrina will be essaying characters they have never played in the past.
“While everyone thinks that only Shah Rukh Khan has a special role in the film with a disability, they will be surprised to know that Anushka and Katrina’s characters also face various challenges. While everyone knows Katrina plays a diva, nobody knows that she is also an alcoholic in the movie. She battles with alcoholism, which affects her life in various ways. Anushka, on the other hand plays a struggling scientist. The makers are trying to keep these details a secret because they don’t want to give out too much information,” Bollywoodlife quoted a source as saying.
Zero will mark Anushka’s fourth collaboration with SRK, opposite whom she had made her grand Bollywood debut in 2008. The two have romanced each other in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Jab Harry Met Sejal so far.
We will also see the Jab Tak Hai Jaan trio of SRK- Katrina – Anushka on screen for the second time. And we cannot wait to see them together in a film again. The film is slated to release on 21 December.
Besides Zero, Katrina also has Thugs of Hindostan starring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Fatima Sana Shaikh scheduled for release this year.
