Katrina not doing `Raees` with SRK
Mumbai: Actress Katrina Kaif has denied being approached to star opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Rahul Dholakia`s `Raees`. There was a buzz that both the stars will be seen together again in the Farhan Akhtar production after `Jab Tak Hai Jaan`.
"I don`t know where this news has come from. There is no such discussion like that till now. There are three films `Bang Bang`, `Phantom` and `Jagga Jassos` that I am doing right now. I am in talks for two more projects which I can`t reveal," Katrina said.
Even Rahul dismissed the report and said, "I don`t think so we have approached her. But we will surely finalise the leading lady in a couple of weeks."
Apparently, Katrina has been offered a role in Ashutosh Gowarikar`s period film. But the actress was not in mood to reveal any details and she neither denied nor confirmed doing it.
"I feel for whatever films I am in discussion with a filmmaker it is not correct to talk about it unless one is doing it because if it doesn`t work out then it makes things awkward for the people and the project," she said.
Presently, Katrina is busy with `Bang Bang` opposite Hrithik Roshan and `Jagga Jasoos` with rumored boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
The actress has delivered two hit films with Ranbir earlier in `Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani` and `Rajneeti`.
"Both the films that Ranbir and I did were really liked by people and were successful. It is exciting for me to work with Ranbir again, he is a great actor. Director Anurag Basu is one of the finest directors that we have today and I am privileged to work with him," she said.
Besides, she has Kabir Khan`s `Phantom` with Saif Ali Khan, with whom she is pairing up for the first time.
