Mumbai: It was recently confirmed by the Yash Raj Productions that Katrina Kaif has been picked to do the female lead for their upcoming project ‘Dhoom 3’.
However the role of the female lead in Dhoom 3 comes with a condition, which instates that Kat will be required to wear a bikini for two major scenes in the film.
Kat had done a bikini scene in her debut film ‘Boom’ in 2003. And after that she has clearly refused filmmakers to do a swimwear scene.
A source close to the project revealed to a daily, "Kat is at the final stage of discussions with the producers. Everything else is on track, except for the two bikini scenes. This is crucial as the banner is famous for getting all their leading ladies in swimwear. There`s no way they will write out those scenes just because she`s not ready to do them. During the meetings, Kat has raised doubts on the nature of these scenes, and the makers have assured her they would be shot in the most aesthetic manner possible."
A lot of actresses have worn a bikini on screen, from Kareena Kapoor in ‘Kambakht Ishq’ and Priyanka Chopra in ‘Dostana’. But Kat is reluctant to wear one.
The source adds further, "These days everyone is ready to get into a bikini. It`s a `flaunt it if you got it` mantra. And they are telling Kat that she will lose out on a good role if she decides to stall the film based on these two scenes."
The role in ‘Dhoom 3’ requires the actress to do a bikini shot come what may, so if Kat does not agree to it she might see the prestigious project slip out of her hands.
According to the sources the banner already has a second choice lined up and a source confirmed, "If Kat is perisistent in her refusal, they have a newcomer who is being trained at the moment. She will be cast in the film if the star doesn`t sign on."
