Katrina Kaif Bags ’83,  Krissh 4

Katrina Kaif is on a role-shopping spree. She  sent  out feelers  to many  forthcoming projects  including Shree Nayaran Singh’s  Batti Gul Meter Chalu and Kabir Khan’s ’83

In both she would have been part of a virgin pair, with Shahid Kapoor in Batti Gil Meter Chalu and  Ranveer Singh in  ’83.

 Unfortunately she  doesn’t suit either part.

Sources say the  first film requires a  rustic North Indian leading lady for  Shahid. As for  ‘83the leading lady opposite Ranveer Singh is supposed  to play Romi Dev who is  very very Punjabi.

As  a source  close  to  the ’83 project says, “Katrina is  very close  to director Kabir Khan and  his wife Mini Mathur. And Kabir who has worked with Katrina in two earlier films does want to cast her. But does she look Punjabi from any angle ?  It’s  impossible to cast her  in this  film although she  is  very keen, and Kabir is  thinking of  flexing the character’s personality to suit Katrina. And if  Punjabi Akshay Kumar can play South Indian PadmanArunchalam Muruganantham, why can’t the non-Punjabi Katrina  play Romi?”

 While  Katrina’s presence in the two above films remains uncertain she is all set to step intoPriyanka Chopra’s zone with the next instalment of Krissh.  Sources in the know say  the father Rakesh and son Hrithik Roshan are keen  to  cast Katrina in Krissh  4.

“She  is  hit it off with Hrithik in two Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and  Bang Bang. AndKrissh  4 is just the masala dossier that Katrina’s career needs right now.She’s made it known that she wants to be in  the next Krissh film and the Roshans are game,” says a source in the know.
