Having starred in two Yash Raj Films’ (YRF) productions last year -‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ – it was once thought that Katrina Kaif was well on her way with the Chopras. However, BizAsia can reveal that Aditya Chopra is now reluctant in casting her in future projects.
YRF is well-known for sticking by actresses, often having multiple film contracts on the go. However, an insider revealed to Mid-Day, “When YRF directors have suggested Katrina for lead roles in their films, Adi has referred replacement actresses”.
An unnamed actress is also known to have commented, “When Ali Abbas Zaffar announced his second film with YRF after Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, it was expected that Katrina would be his heroine just like his first project. Instead, they went for Priyanka Chopra”. It is thought that Chopra also chose to cast Sonam Kapoor over Kaif in a forthcoming project for which male lead is said to be Ayushmann Khurrana.
It very much seems as if Kaif’s ‘lucky charm’ spirit may just be running out. Watch and watch for more, only at BizAsia.
