Katrina Kaif Boos the Bikini- At What Cost?
Mumbai: After the stupendous success of ‘Dhoom’ and ‘Dhoom 2’, the producers areready to go on floors with ‘Dhoom 3’. After much discussion, the producers have finally got the cast in place. However the slot of leading lady remains to be filled.
All actresses would be willing to give an arm and leg for the role. After all, the ‘Dhoom’ franchise is associated with one of the oldest and most respected production houses in India. And Lady Luck has smiled on Katrina Kaif.
But the road ahead is not so smooth. The script includes two scenes where Katrina has to sport a bikini. And Kat is not comfortable with this. Katrina wore a bikini in her debut film ‘Boom’ (2003) and was upset with the way in which it was finally portrayed on screen. Ever since she has refused to don bikini in films.
The producers are adamant that the bikini scenes are important. They have the reputation for getting all their leading ladies in swim wear. They have assured Katrina that the scenes will be shot aesthetically. However, they are clear that they would replace Katrina, if she fails to relent.
Katrina should note that most of her colleagues have donned the bikini – Kareena (Tashan), Priyanka (Don). A movie like ‘Dhoom 3’ will propel her career to greater heights. It may be a mistake to pass it up. After all, bikini will only be complementary to one who is ‘as sexy as Sheila’.
