Says a source from the creative team, “When Ali started drafting the script, he didn’t want it to be a scene-to-scene adaptation. After discussing with Salman, he decided to increase the emotional quotient in the drama. He also made Katrina’s [Kaif] character meatier as compared to her counterpart in the original.”
Co-producer Nikhil Namit says, “Contrary to speculation, Katrina did not ask for her role to be increased. We had fleshed out the role right from the beginning, even before Priyanka Chopra left the movie. Salman has also given his creative inputs to the script. The Korean team has read the revised version and felt that we have adapted it well.” Namit adds that running the script by the South Korean team wasn’t part of the contract. “But we thought of getting their feedback.”
