Physical appearances, it appears, matter a lot to Salman Khan. Remember with what panache he romanced the Aishwarya Rai lookalike Sneha Ullal in Lucky - No Time For Love after a bitter break off with Ash. And though Sallu still hasn’t split from Katrina Kaif, he’s grown quite a liking for her lookalikes.
He was quick to spot Kat’s body-double Zarine Khan on the sets of Yuvvraaj and immediately cast her as his heroine in the period drama Veer. Zarine is said to be an almost carbon copy of Katrina.
Now, Salman is again on a hunt to find another girl who resembles Kat. The reason? He wants to launch her in a romantic flick titled ‘Paris’ to be produced jointly by his sister Alvira and her husband Atul Agnihotri.
The obvious question that begs to be asked is, why not sign Katrina herself?
According to a source, Salman and Katrina vowed to avoid working with each other after the debacle of ‘Yuvvraaj’. They might team up only and only if something exceptional comes their way.
So, for the time being Salman is learning to make do with Kat’s lookalike. He obviously can’t repeat Zarine in Alvira’s film after ‘Veer’. So, he’s reportedly asked the casting agents to look for a gorgeous, fair-complexioned, raven-haired girl who resembles his current flame Katrina Kaif.
