Mumbai: After being approached for several of projects together, Imran Khan and Katrina Kaif have finally given their nod to Yash Raj films for its next project.
And this is happening after endless attempts made by Sanjay Gadhvi to cast the duo in ‘7 Days in Paris’ failed miserably. As per sources it was financial troubles faced by Gadhvi that made casting the duo impossible. However, now the two have officially signed on with YRF.
As per reports, the project that is still untitled will be directed by debutante Ali Abbas Zafar. And YRF has decided to waste no time on rolling this one out. Confirming the news a source said, “Ali has written the script and the film will be the next one to go on floors under the YRF banner as early as next month”.
And not only Katrina, this one will also be Imran’s first with YRF. “This is the first time Imran will work in a YRF Film. The film was not scheduled to start earlier but since Katrina had bulk dates to give, considering Dostana 2 was postponed, Imran also agreed and the film is ready to take off immediately. Imran is known to be choosy but he loved the script and has signed the film. It’s a romantic film. Ali has assisted YRF in four films earlier: Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, New York, Tashan and the recently released Badmash Company,” adds the source.
Talking about the project Imran said, “I am happy to be a part of the film and to be working with YRF. I love the way Adi functions. I also liked the way Ali has visualised his script.”
