Is Katrina the new Kajol?
Mumbai: We have all loved Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s pairing in films. Time and again the reel life couple have made us fall in love with love. In fact their jodi is considered one of the most successful jodis of Bollywood. But it seems brit beauty Katrina Kaif is all set to take Kajol’s place!
Kat is being paired with King Khan in two forthcoming films. Yash Chopra’s directorial venture will star SRK, Katrina and Anushka Sharma in the lead. Needless to say, this one will be a classic romance.
Latest development is that Katrina is also being considered to star opposite SRK in Rohit Shetty’s next. Katrina will however have to fight it out with Kareena Kapoor, a Rohit Shetty favourite, before she bags the coveted project.
Speaking to a daily, a source close to Rohit revealed, “Katrina Kaif is at an all time career high. Currently, she is working with the three biggest Khans - Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir. Rohit Shetty’s action film that goes on floors in May next year will be her fourth consecutive film with a Khan.”
Though Rohit has approached Katrina, Rohit is also contemplating on casting Kareena. And why not? Kareena is also having a successful run at the BO and her pairing with SRK in ‘RA.One’ has been much appreciated.
“Kareena has worked with SRK in ‘Asoka’ and ‘RA.One’. She shares a good on-screen chemistry with him. Also, director Rohit Shetty is very fond of her. She has been his chosen one for the successful Golmaal franchise. She is the obvious choice for the project,” said the source.
Industry insiders feel that Katrina’s friendship with Rohit might just pay off. “Katrina is working with SRK in Yash Chopra’s film. She has become good friends with the actor as well. She might have been recommended by him as well,” added the source.
Rohit Shetty had initially planned to re make 1982 classic ‘Angoor’ with SRK but after the success of ‘RA.One’ SRK has shown keen interest in doing an action film.
“When Rohit decided to make an action film with Shah Rukh, he decided to change his heroine as well. Earlier he wanted Kareena to portray the role played by Moushumi Chatterjee in the original ‘Angoor’. But with the change in the script, he decided upon Katrina Kaif,” revealed another source.
Looks like another hit jodi is in the making! Wonder what ‘good friend’ Salman has to say about all this.
