Buzz is that Katrina has bagged a role in SRK starrer Raees
Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif surely created magic on the silver screen when they worked together for Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan. And it seems that the two are all set to share the screen space yet again in the upcoming film, Raees. Yes, as per the latest buzz, Kat has been offered the film and apparently, she has given a go-ahead.
“Katrina is in talks to play the lead role. They have been discussing it for a while now, but latest developments suggest that she has given them a go-ahead. This will be her second film with Shahrukh Khan after Jab Tak Hai Jaan,” a source was quoted by a tabloid.
For those of you who don’t know, initially, Sonam Kapoor was being considered to play the lead role, but she opted out of the film to work with SRK’s arch rival – Salman Khan in Sooraj Barjatya’s upcoming film, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
Currently Kat is shooting with Hrithik Roshan for Bang Bang, after which she will be working on Jagga Jasoos opposite Ranbir Kapoor, but it looks like this film will be pushed ahead, courtesy trouble in Ranbir-Katrina’s paradise. Besides these two films, she doesn’t have too much on her plate as of now, so a lead role in Raees might be just right for her. After all, who wouldn’t want to work with King Khan, hai na?
Anyway, considering Katrina is still friends with Salman even after their break-up, we wonder what the Dabangg Khan has to say about Kat working with SRK in Raees.
