BizAsia reported recently that Bhumi Pednekar had opted out of Ali Abbas Zafar’s upcoming film starring Shahid Kapoor. News now has it that Katrina Kaif has stepped into the role, apparently.
“It’s all very hush-hush with Ali and his crew at the moment. While Shahid started shooting for the crime drama last week, this week Katrina’s body double was seen rehearsing with a South African crew at the Emirates. Full on gun firing,” said a source, according to Pinkvilla.
The source went on to add, “Katrina Kaif’s duplicate and the film unit are rehearsing at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi. It’s an action scene at a casino where a shootout takes place between mobsters, drug dealers and cops”.
Kaif is thought to have flown to Abu Dhabi to the shoot, as the source went on to say, “If she plays Shahid’s wife it’s possible it will be Katrina’s cameo in the movie and she appears as Ali Abba’s lucky mascot. We know that Katrina’s scenes involve lots of action and that’s why her duplicate was seen rehearsing for the scenes at the Emirates Hotel. She is Ali Abbas’s favorite heroine and one of his closest friends so it is natural that she will be in his next project in some way. Also, he will make sure that Katrina’s star presence is justified in the movie and that she has a meaty role. They were planning to do a superhero movie together this year but that is on hold right now. Katrina is very hard-working and is said to have undergone a 14-day training with South Korean stunt designers for her action scenes in Tiger 3”.
