Now, it’s almost confirmed that no one but Deepika Padukone has bagged the lead role opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Imtiaz Ali’s next. However, there seems to be someone who is sulking over the matter.
It’s said that Katrina Kaif, who was vying for the role of the lead actress opposite her alleged beau Ranbir Kapoor in Imtiaz Ali’s next, is not so pleased with the development. Katrina has never worked with Imtiaz, and was eager to team up with the director, but scales tipped in Deepika Padukone’s favour, making Kat upset.
“Katrina was keen to do Imtiaz’s next as she’s never worked with him before. Also, she was the first actress to make a hit pair with RK and she wants to recreate that on-screen... Besides, working with him would also mean spending some quality time with her beau,” a source is quoted as saying by a tabloid.
Apparently, even Katrina Kaif asked Ranbir Kapoor to suggest her name to Imtiaz to cast her in the film. But as the Kapoor lad never recommends his heroines to directors, he didn’t make an exception for his ladylove.
Imtiaz shares a great bond with Ranbir Kapoor since they worked together in Rockstar, and is also fond of Deepika Padukone. Deeps has worked with the director both in Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail (written by Ali), and has shown a remarkable growth as an actress over the last couple of years, winning accolades for her acting.
Especially after seeing the phenomenal success of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone have become the hottest on-screen pair with more and more admirers and takers.
