Katrina to play double role in ‘Seeta aur Geeta’ remake
Mumbai: After proving her mettle in ‘Raajneeti’, swishy beauty Katrina Kaif is all set to scale new heights. The actress, who has often been criticised for her anglicized accent, is now one of the most coveted actresses in the industry.
Flooded with offers, Katrina is choosing and picking roles and as per reports the actress is all set to play the lead role in the remake of ‘Seeta aur Geeta’, the legendary double role that made Hema Malini a force to reckon with.
And it’s not just about picking roles, the actress is also deciding as to who should direct the film. And she has chosen none other than her favourite filmmaker Anees Bazmee.
What’s more is that the actress is also re-negotiating a meatier deal with Zoya Akhtar for her flick ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’.
Confirming reports of Kat’s starry ways a source said, “This has ruffled some feathers in the crew of this film because in the recent past Katrina has backed out of several movies, because the role was not substantial. These rejects include Anurag Basu`s ‘Silence’, Shristi Arya`s remake of ‘Bride Wars’ and Anees Bazmee`s ‘Thank You’”.
"In Zoya`s film Katrina plays a seductress; the role is more about her looks than actual acting. After ‘Raajneeti’, she has received recognition for her acting skills rather than merely her Barbie Doll looks," adds the source.
