News surrounding Sultan۪ and its leading lady has been doing the rounds since way before Anushka Sharma officially announced that she۪d landed the role. It۪s emerged that Salman Khan۪s alleged ex-flame Katrina Kaif turned down the film due to her them boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
Pinkvilla reports a source telling a leading daily, Katrina was offered the role at first, but since she was dating Ranbir Kapoor, she rejected the role. Ranbir was the reason why she rejected being in the film with Salman.
Although Kaif۪s decision might be understandable, it seems she might۪ve needed a film like Sultan۪ at this time in her career.
She will be seen next in Jagga Jasoos۪ and Baar Baar Dekho۪.
