Is Katrina Kaif better suited than Deepika Padukone to play Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter in Piku?

With Parineeti having rejected a film opposite Big B, it seems like the Happy New Year actor has now bagged the role. But, is Deepika the perfect choice for Piku?

Deepika Padukone might just play Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter for a second time onscreen, but BollywoodLife readers feel that Katrina Kaif would be apt for this role. We asked our readers who would they like to see as Big B’s daughter in Shoojit Sircar film? And they had to choose from – Vidya Balan, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif , Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma. Most felt that the Dhoom:3 gal deserved this one. According to reports, the Race 2 babe sped past many contenders to bag this project, apparently the film revolves around the relationship of father and daughter. However, in our poll Dippy bagged a second place and Katrina stood first with 33 percent (1566) votes. Ms Padukone who is said to have signed the dotted line bagged about 28 percent (1303) votes. Following them closely at number three was the Gunday heroine who scored 23 percent (1088) votes.

Bachchan Sr’s mommy in Paa, Vidya Baln stood last and earned only 7 percent (319) votes and standing second last was the Bombay Velvet actor Anushka Sharma who scored 10 percent (455) votes.

Filmmaker Shoojit  has still not confirmed about Deepika. The Madras Cafe director said in a recent interview, “Nothing is confirmed right now. At the moment, my entire focus is on discussing the script with Mr Bachchan. After that, I will take the second step (of finalising the heroine). At the moment, I can only confirm Mr Bachchan and Irrfan being part of my film officially.”

With no confirmation on the heroine, does Katrina Kaif have a chance to bag this Deepika Padukone film? We’ll wait and watch!Subscribe to me on YouTube

      • nikhil kumar

    • arohi

      piku is a women centric film, it requires acting not cuteness or glamour,,, deepika is best for this role.
      and plz Katrina was never in race for this role sonam was in talks this role not Katrina, her name is just mentioned by this website. lol

  • Alisha

    Katrina has already bagged the role i think and i want her 2 play the role and cheapika should quit it.

    • umar zebai

      nice name youve give mher…cheapika!!!suits her!!!

      • arohi

    • arohi

      hahaha in ur dreams….. man piku is only meant to be for deepika, Katrina name is given by website, sonam and pecee were in talks but not Katrina, she was never in talks for this role bcz this film requires acting talent which your Katrina don’t have,,

  • EE

    The film has 2 awesome actors AB and Irfan so the daughter shud be someone with good acting skills like Deepika or Vidya, not bimbo Katrina, good for item numbers and fashion magazine covers only

  • Anmol

    Deepika is best to act with AB, Kutrina is looks like only a item girl, no talent only have some boom looks…

    • nikhil kumar

      watch rajneeti

  • Mahnoor

    deepika n katrina r both my faves katrina has already worked with katrina but deepika hasnt i dont know who 2 choose…….

    • Melodysonglovealot

      Choose deepika cuz at least she knows hindi and this is not deepika’s website it’s just that deepika is friendly with the media unlike bitchy Katrina who gives way to much attitude do stop calling her cheapika it not deepika’s that the media loves her so much # ranbir and deepika all the way

      • Mahnoor

        now that im thinking about it then its deepika hwever i do like katrina but maybe deepika is suitable 4 this role but if the daughter is foreign then katrina but i now think deepika

    • umar zebai

  • Nancy Samuel

    Never. Deepika is 1000 times better than katrina in acting.

    • divya

      • aliya
