Arbaaz Khan replaces Katrina Kaif with Sonam Kapoor in Dolly Ki Doli

Rumorus were rife that Arbaaz was considering casting Kat in his next but the filmmaker has finally signed the Kapoor lass to play lead in Dolly Ki Doli

Arbaaz Khan’s next production venture is a women centric film titled Dolly Ki Doli which be directed by debutant Abhishek Dogra. And before Sonam Kapoor was brought onboard, we had learnt that Arbaaz had approached Katrina Kaif for his film. Since Salman Khan isn’t part of the project maybe his younger brother thought of casting a bankable starlet and who better than Ms Kaif, right? Then we wonder why Arbaaz decided to rope in Sonam. Maybe too much has been said about Kat’s personal life of late and her equation with Sallu is also not-so-warm. So to keep things neutral, the Dabangg 2 director went for a safer option, wethinks. Personally, a wise decision by Arbaaz considering his bade bhaiyya is close to him but professionally we aren’t sure coz Anil Kapoor’s beti hasn’t pulled of a film on her own till now, no peeps?

Dolly Ki Doli is set to go on floors in January 2014 and Sonam will reprise the role of a north Indian girl in the flick. Confirming the news, Arbaaz told a leading daily, “We wanted a girl who can do justice to the character. I’m happy to have Sonam onboard. When we narrated the script to her, she admitted that she could instantly identify with Dolly.”
