Katrina Kaif, Aditya Chopra at loggerheads
Katrina Kaif might be doing YRF’s ‘Dhoom 3’ with Aamir Khan but the inside picture of Katrina and YRF’s head Aditya Chopra's relationship is not so good. It is reported that the duo had a fall out on the issue of ‘Gunday’ filming. Before Priyanka Chopra was signed for the movie, Adi approached Kat but much to the surprise of Adi, the actress denied and laid certain conditions to be in the film. Aditya who has shaped Katrina’s career stunned to see her inflexibility.
Aditya Chopra gave her hits like Salman (Ek Tha Tiger), Shah Rukh (Jab Tak Hai Jaan) and Aamir (Dhoom 3) apart from New York and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan but when he approached her to act in ‘Gunday’, she turned down citing various clauses. ‘Gunday’ stars Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, Katrina wants a bigger star opposite her. Secondly, she wants the film to be directed by an established director. To say no to Adi, she cited dates problem. Aditya Chopra doesn’t like to hear no from anyone. He approached Katrina and instead of nagging her further, he allowed her to move on.
Priyanka Chopra was
signed and she is in Adi’s good books. Says a source, “Adi made so many allowances
for her. When she told him that she was uncomfortable doing the bikini scene in
Dhoom 3, Adi made allowances for
his blue-eyed girl. She is the only actress to have acted in five films of YRF.
So he was confident of her nod for Gunday. Also,
because it was to be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar (Mere
Brother Ki Dulhan) with whom she shares a wonderful working
relation and Arjun is her rakhi brother.”
Katrina refused to act opposite new comers, “That was the turning point. He couldn’t believe that she would lay down conditions in front of him. He coldly told Kat he didn’t need her in the film and went ahead and signed her arch rival. After that he has cooled off Kat,” the source adds.
Katrina Kaif’s close friend denies the tiff between the actress and Adi. “Katrina is extremely close to Ali Abbas. In fact, when he was writing the script of Gunday, he would often come to her Bandra pad and both would work on the script together. But when they wanted dates from her, she discovered that those dates had been given for Dhoom3”.
Another source adds Katrina’s dates is blocked for ‘Bang Bang’ and hence she could not sign ‘Gunday’.However, the source close to Kat adds, “In fact Adi is planning to do another film with Kat soon so all these rumours are not true.”
