The Yashraj production banner has always had its share of goodwill, compelling people to fight and drool over getting to be a part of their films. But this time, the news that is making the rounds surely takes us by surprise. It is not one, nor two, but three prominent actresses vying for a part in the next big film by Yashraj, Dhoom 3. The ladies, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif, are dropping subtle hints and indications, trying their best to woo the respective authorities to be a part of the blockbuster franchise.
Reportedly, Aamir Khan has been added to the existing starcast, which includes Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra. With Aamir’s inclusion as the villian, the interest in the film has surely multiplied, and the three heroines in question are even more tempted to be a part of the film.
None of the three actresses have ever worked with Aamir Khan, but their association with Yashraj Films is quite long-standing. Priyanka had agreed to be a part of the Uday Chopra starrer Pyaar Impossible, which was disastrous at the box office. Deepika was a part of Bachna Ae Haseeno while she was dating the Kapoor Scion, Ranbir Kapoor, and Katrina had been a part of the critically and commercially acclaimed New York and is currently working with Imran Khan and Ali Zafar for Mere Brother Ki Dulhan under the same banner.
Sources say Katrina is topping the list as of now. Aditya Chopra has taken quite an interest in her, even though her last offering, Tees Maar Khan could not meet its expectations in terms of box office success. Next in line is Priyanka, followed by Deepika.
The ladies have even shed their inhibitions to fit the role, as it is known the leading lady of Dhoom 3 needs to don a bikini and be at her sexiest best. Adi and writer-director Vijay Krishna Acharya are keen on casting the right girl, and they are ready to wait for some time before announcing anything. Even a YRF spokesperson denied all such rumours, calling this to be a mere conjecture, but confirming that Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra are surely in and the rest of the casting is yet to be finalized.
We can only wait to find out who wins this race!
