Recently, Katrina Kaif was allegedly offered a role opposite South superstar Chiranjeevi, but she apparently declined the offer.
Now reportedly, Kajal Aggarwal will be Chiranjeevi’s heroine in his comeback movie, which is his 150th film.
According to reports, the South industry is apparently quite shocked at Katrina’s refusal. Many heroines from Bollywood have readily acted in South films, including the likes of Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha and Amy Jackson. Katrina has previously acted in films down South, even though those might just be item numbers.
A source was quoted saying, “She should have done the film with Chiranjeevi. She has several fans here. Why has she forgotten us?”
However, a source close to the actress was quoted saying, “Kat hasn’t had much to chew on, recently. But there is no reason why her Bollywood diary won’t fast fill up. She is meeting many filmmakers and reading quite a few scripts. Gone are the days when she had started to soft pedal on her career, thinking that Ranbir Kapoor will marry her.”
Reportedly, Kat has been in talks with Karan Johar for a film, which will be directed by debutante director Aditya Dhar. She is apparently also said to be the strongest contender for Aanand L Rai’s film dwarf film with Shah Rukh Khan.
