Katrina Kaif Loses Race To Jacqueline

There was  a time when Jacqueline Fernandez  saw Katrina Kaif as  a kind of role-model. Both being outsiders with no gyaan of the rashtra bhasha .Both fair and sexy…

A more critical commonality is Salman Khan. While Katrina’s proximity  to the superstar  Khan is  a part of movie folklore  Ms Fernandez in  recent times has been making every effort to get into Salman’s good books. Her attempts to ingratiate herself to the mega-star include visits to his residence in Bandra  to meet the Khan family(this is a ploy adopted by many wannna-woo Salman heroines  . It failed with Priyanka Chopra).

All the social niceties paid off when the affable Ms F landed the  female lead opposite Salman in SajidNadiadwala’s Kick. Since then she has been hungering for more roles with Salman.It finally happened when she landed the part of the superstar’s Beloved Other in Remo D’Souza’a dance film.

But then the unexpected happened. Salmam decided he was too old to play a dancing star. He decided to do another film with Remo: Race  3 , produced by Ramesh Taurani.

At this  point Jacqueline  was not part of the translocated package. One hears  Katrina was the  no.1 choice for the female lead opposite Salman in Race 3.But then in this whirilig  of  grand illusion known as  Bollywood, there is  many a slip between  the cup and the lip.

The plum role in Race 3  earmarked  for Katrina  has now gone to Fernandez purely on Salman’s recommendation.

We hear Salman felt morally obliged to compensate  not only director Remo D’Souza  but also  Jacqueline after the dance film  they were doing together was shut down. So Salman being Salman he cartlifted the entire team to an alternative project, flood-relief style.

I am  sure this development won’t do much to aggrandize Katrina’s friendship with her Sri Lankan rival.

Oh yes, Katrina and  Jacqueline  now have another (f)actor in common. Siddharth Malhotra. Both the hottieshave delivered duds with with  male  bimbo.

Happy Friendship Day,in advance.
