Recently it was announced that Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez will be coming together for Tarun Mansukhani’s film, produced under Dharma Productions but apparently Fernandez wasn’t the first choice. BizAsia recently reported that Katrina Kaif was approached first and, on the contrary to the rumours doing the rounds that she was pushed out of the film, it appears she was not ousted at all.
According to PinkVilla, the untitled action flick was actually going to see Katrina Kaif as the leading lady opposite Singh Rajput.
A source told the publication, “Yes, Katrina was approached for the film since she was a perfect fit for the role and shares a great equation with Salman Khan Films and Dharma Productions. She had to turn it down as she has signed another movie, the dates of which were clashing with this project. It was then that the makers approached Jacqueline as Katrina has committed her timelines to another film.”
The action flick is the second time Mansukhani takes to direction post 2008’s ‘Dostana’.
