Whilst Katrina Kaif is busy promoting her new film ‘Bharat,’ which also stars Salman Khan, she also found time to talk to the media about getting into production soon.
On turning a producer, she said, “Yes, it’s true. I plan to start my production house sometime towards the end of this year. I really hope to put my name as a producer to one of the projects I’ve been in discussions with. So let’s see.” According to reports, Kaif has bought the rights for the French film, ‘He Loves Me… He Love Me Not’ (2002). Reportedly, the project didn’t take off earlier, reports the Hindustan Times.
Kaif, who has also been shooting for Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty’s cop drama ‘Sooryavanshi,’ said she hasn’t decided on her next film yet. “I’ll take a call after Bharat releases,” she said.
There has been a lot of debate on Priyanka Chopra’s sudden exit from ‘Bharat’ last year and Kaif’s entry. Khan had previously mentioned how Kaif had little time to prepare for her role in the film. Kaif added that though she joined ‘Bharat’ at the last minute, there was no pressure on her from director Ali Abbas Zafar or Khan to be a part of the project. “I was fully under the impression that they were going to begin the shoot. And as far as my knowledge is concerned Priyanka (Chopra) was in the film. It was Ali (Abbas Zafar) who told me that ‘There is a little change in plan and for some reasons she is no longer part of the film and I am sending you the script, just read it and react to it’. And he absolutely put no pressure, it was just that you react to the script. I read the script and felt this is his best work so far. It was an amazing character to play and then we got straight into work,” she said.
‘Bharat’ releases this Eid.
