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!
