Yes you read it right, Kat stands to gain from the films success, here's how...
Bajrangi Bhaijaan stars Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles. Katrina Kaif has nothing to do with the film. She hasn't done an item song, or even a cameo, so how does she stand to benefit from the film's success ? Well, if you stretch your mind a bit and join the dots then you might realise that Bajrangi's director Kabir Khan is the guy who has directed her next release - Phantom! Rings a bell ? The success of BB (which is guaranteed) will not only reap rich rewards for the lead pair of Salman and Kareena, but its director Kabir Khan.
Unfortunately, Kabir's geo political thriller Phantom has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. There were reports of re-shooting, how the film was stalled, going over budget and why it was pushed back when it was to be released even before Bajrangi Bhaijaan. If BB works, clearly trade will pick up Phantom as a hot project and there will be positive buzz around it. People remember you based on your performance in your last film. Kabir is clearly the man of the moment, and the success of BB will revive all interest in Phantom, giving Katrina a reason to rejoice.
There is buzz that Katrina plans to aggressively promote Phantom and has already blocked her dates and planned the schedule for it in advance. Also the trailer of the film is due in a few days on July 25, so the box office numbers of Bajrangi Bhaijaan will only help the promotion of Phantom and benefit the lead stars Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif.
