The movie was supposed to happen years ago, but was put on the backburner following the falling-out between SRK and Farah Khan. But now that the matters have been sorted out between the two, Farah is keen to revive the project. The icing on the cake is that Katrina Kaif might get to play the lead role opposite SRK.
The industry sources claim that Farah Khan was always going to cast Katrina in Happy New Year that she was planning to make with Shahrukh before Tees Maar Khan.
Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif are already working together in an untitled classic romantic film by Yash Chopra, and the buzz surrounding the couple is tremendous.
Also the animosity between Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan has helped in generating the hype for Shahrukh Khan-Katrina Kaif pairing. Farah, too, seems game to cash in on the novelty factor of the couple and their star values.
“Naturally, it comes as no surprise that Farah is casting her (Katrina) opposite SRK,” says a source. Katrina and Farah have been good friends, and insiders say there is no reason for Kat to decline this offer. The actress is always game for big projects and good directors. In fact, it’s learnt that Katrina wants Farah to direct her sister Isabelle in her Bollywood debut.
Katrina Kaif will also work with Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3, but still her fans think she looks best with Salman Khan. Don’t you think so?
