Mumbai: Now, one of the most sought after actresses in Bollywood, Katrina Kaif had kick-started her career in the industry as a “bikini-girl” in `Boom`.
The film proved to be a huge dud and so was Katrina’s bikini act. But since then Katrina has walked miles so much so that she has now started calling the shots!
Apparently, Kat has been signed for ‘Dhoom 3’ as the leading lady opposite Aamir Khan.
The earlier franchises of the film had the leading ladies sizzling in bikinis and Kat was required to do the same. But Aditya, the Yash Raj scion seems to have given in to Kat’s convictions just like he did for Ash in `Dhoom 2`.
A source informed a tabloid that Aditya had categorically told Katrina that she would be required to wear a bikini in the film. In the past too, YRF had got Esha Deol and Bipasha Basu to don the two-piece swimwear for `Dhoom` and `Dhoom 2` respectively.
“Whether they did it willingly or reluctantly, nobody knows. But Katrina was extremely reluctant,” said the source.
As reported by the tabloid, the source said, “Aditya is very fond of Katrina and they are very good friends. He had other options, including a few foreign actresses, but Katrina towered above all those options. Katrina managed to convince Aditya that it was not necessary for her to wear a bikini in the film.”
Talking about the entire bikini issue, another source said, “Aditya is not even disappointed. In fact, he is very happy that Katrina is on board. Bikini ka problem shayyad ek hi reason tha that he took so long to finalise the female lead in the film.”
Justifying Katrina’s no-bikini clause, a friend of the actress said, “Today, Katrina is a big star. She adds tremendous value to a project. She is justified in her reservations, if any, when she signs a film.”
Well done girl. That’s like a commanding woman!
