After the Simmba director has shared the news of his next big Bollywood project with Akshay Kumar, the buzz is that Zero actress Katrina Kaif will be accompanying the star onscreen in the lead role. According to the reports, the movie is said to be the remake of a Malayalam movie Action Hero Biju. However, now one from the production has yet confirmed the news.
Earlier, there were rumours that Pooja Hegde will be seen playing the role of the female lead in the movie. The filmmaker though rejected the idea saying that until now, not even the script of the movie has been finalized and they have not yet chosen any actress to work in the movie. Now, the new buzz is that actress Katrina Kaif is being considered for the role in the movie. If the news turns out to be true, the audience will experience the duo working together onscreen after a time period of 9 years. The actors were previously seen working together in their last movie Tees Maar Khan.
A trade source said, “Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif have delivered many blockbusters at the box office and their pair is an extremely popular one with fans and at the box office. While Tees Maar Khan was their last movie together, they have been approached by many filmmakers to do a movie together but Katrina has turned them down as she’s been looking for a strong role opposite Akshay. Akshay will be seen in the role of ATS officer Veer Suryavanshi in this comedy-drama film apparently, the actress who is paired romantically opposite him will play his girlfriend and wife who is a pillar of support to him in a background full of corruption and intrigue. It’s a strong role and Katrina is definitely being considered as one of the options and approached for the same. It’s all very hush-hush right now till everything is finalised."
“Rohit has not worked with Katrina before and last year too there was talk that the actress was in talks with the filmmaker for Simmba but it fizzled out. This time Katrina may find it tough to say no as Rohit Shetty is now the first Bollywood director whose eight consecutive films (with Simmba) have earned over Rs. 100 crore at the box office and every actor and actress is dying to work with him. Katrina is yet to sign a film after Bharat so her dates diary is open at present. Sooryavanshi shoot starts from mid-2019 and Bharat would have released by then,” the source further added.
When director Rohit Shetty was asked for the same, he said, “It’s not true. We are still working on the script.”
Well, to know the complete truth we can just wait to see what is coming through our way by Rohit’s Sooryavanshi.
