Katrina just can’t stand Priyanka Chopra
It started with ‘Namaste London’ and is still on. Katrina Kaif’s every single movie as a solo actress has been a hit, and the actress knows her brand pretty well. This may be the reason for Katrina to opt out from one Anurag Basu film opposite Ranbir Kapoor, as Priyanka Chopra was also said to be a part of the cast.
Soon after reports aired that Priyanka Chopra will also be a part of the film, comes news that Katrina has opted out of the film.
“When Katrina agreed to do Anurag Basu’s film with Ranbir, no mention was made of another heroine, and certainly not of Priyanka. However, when word about this reached her, she found the whole idea of the credit titles reading ‘Ranbir-Katrina-Priyanka’ too gimmicky. Not that she has anything against Priyanka or any other co-star,” said a close friend to Katrina.
One more reason for Katrina could be that she has finally acquired the rights to produce the remake of a French film, which she has been trying to obtain for almost a year now and wants to immediately devote time for this project.
Katrina is also doing ‘Dostana 2’ and a Zoya Akhtar’s next, besides Farah Khan’s ‘Tees Maar Khan,’ and the only way she could do this remake was to refuse any other projects this year.
And she also doesn’t deny her decision to go solo.
“I am not saying I won’t do films with other leading ladies, but for now, I’m happy in the space I am. Why should I unnecessarily rock the boat? And yes, I am finally about to lock the deal to produce my film. It’s a fabulous role and I’ve been angling for the remake rights for quite some time. I’d like to get down to it as soon as possible,” said Katrina.
The remake of the French film will have Katrina as a scheming gold-digger.
