Before we jump ahead, the former couple Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif have both agreed to star in Kabir Khan’s next film. Kabir Khan, who directed Kabul Express and the hit film New York, had initially zeroed in on Salman Khan for the lead, but was without a leading lady until now.
There was much speculation over who the leading lady might be for this film. Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone were apparently in the running for this plum role.
A source close to the film stated, “But obviously, the role suits Katrina better. Moreover, having worked with Kabir Khan, she is Kabir’s favourite; they share a very good equation.”
Things are looking up for Kaif, who has managed to land two great projects with both the two warring Khans. She has also been signed to a film directed by the Romance King Yash Chopra opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
