With Priyanka Chopra’s hasty exit  from  Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, Katrina  Kaif has joined in. But hang on. It won’t be  that easy for the half-British  diva to  step into the  Desi Girl’s sandals. Apparently  the role was is  that  of  a full-on rapid-talking North Indian firebrand. Or as  a source describes  it, “Sholay’s Basanti on Speed.” (Hema Malini's iconic role in the 70s drama Sholay had her speak 19 to the dozen in a village-girl accent). 

Katrina obviously can’t do the  indigenous  glib-talking Bharatiya Nari. Apparently actor-producer Salman Khan and  his director Ali Abbas Zafar are in a bit of a fix. “The role was a  perfect  fit for  Priyanka Chopra. That’s why she was  signed in the  first place.  Otherwise Katrina was the  first  choice. Now Katrina has stepped in without a moment’s hesitation,” says the source.

Of course, director Ali Abbas Zafar is happy to have his friend in the film. He shares a warm relationship with Katrina having worked with her in Tiger Zinda Hai and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. But now that she has said yes to a role earmarked for Priyanka, Katrina would have to work really hard  on  her dialogues and  her  body language. Or Salman and Zafar may have to change the character a bit to suit Katrina's image. 

What will they opt for?
