The actor is reportedly not a YRF favorite anymore, especially after she refused to be the leading lady in Gunday
Katrina Kaif was offered five of Aditya Chopra’s best roles, three of which were with the reigning Khans – Salman Khan (Ek Tha Tiger), Shahrukh Khan (Jab Tak Hai Jaan) and Aamir Khan (Dhoom 3) apart from New York and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. And in return Aditya Chopra expected nothing much from Kat but to be grateful to do one film that he wanted her to do. The film which we are talking about here is Gunday which stars Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor.
If reports are to be believed, when Adi asked Katrina to be the leading lady in Gunday, she refused citing date reasons. Since the Dhoom 3 girl refused to do the film, it was offered to Priyanka Chopra who instantly agreed to play the leading lady in Gunday.
According to our khabroo, Adi was confident of Katrina’s nod for Gunday since it is to be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan) with whom she shares a wonderful working relation and Arjun is her rakhi brother but to Adi’s shock, not only did she refused to do the film, Kat said she would do it only if he roped in one of the bigger stars. That is when Katrina entered in Aditya Chopra’s bad books. “He couldn’t believe that she would lay down conditions in front of him. He coldly told Kat he didn’t need her in the film and went ahead and signed her arch rival. After that he has cooled off Kat,” adds our khabroo .
So what is up with Katrina? She has been losing out on a lot of films lately. First she was replaced by Deepika Padukone in Happy New Year and Dostana 2 and now she has been replaced by Priyanka Chopra in Gunday.
