Katrina bags Yash Raj film opposite John and Blue opposite Akshay
Katrina Kaif has definitely come a long way in bollywood. She has moved on from her disastrous bollywood debut Boom to signing a prestigious Yash Raj film. Katrina has been offered a Yash Raj film opposite John Abhraham. However sources claim that Katz was offered this film opposite John as a consolation as her role in the earlier film with Ranbir was scrapped. Katrina has also bagged a role in the film Blue opposite Akshay Kumar.
Katrina was earlier slated to do the Yash Raj film which starred Ranbir Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and Minnisha Lamba. However sources claim "This is one of those rare occasions that a heroine’s track has been chopped from a film. Katrina was slated to shoot for the film this month. They decided to do away with her role as the other actresses have already shot for the film. That’s why Yash Raj offered her another film as a sop, so she doesn’t feel upset." Yash Raj spokesperson, Monica Bhattacharya confirmed that Katrina's role has been scrapped from the Siddharth Anand directed film. She said "Sixty per cent of the Siddharth-Anand film has already been shot and we found the story was becoming too long. As a result we decided to do away with one girl’s character altogether. Katrina’s character was the only one that has not yet been shot, so we decided to do away with her character.”
Katrina has supposedly already signed the Yash Raj film opposite John Abraham. Meanwhile boyfriend Salman who does not share a good rapport with John is well aware of the film with John and has told Katrina to go ahead and do it as he does not want his equations with people to come in the way of Katrina's career. Meanwhile Katrina has also replaced Priyanka Chopra in Shree Ashtavinayak film, Blue opposite Akshay Kumar. Katrina and Akshay will be paired together for the fifth time. Earlier on, Akshay was keen to have Priyanka do the role opposite him; however his wife Twinkle Khanna has once again put her foot down on the two of them working together due to their alleged link-up. Priyanka is apparently quite upset that she will not be a part of the film. Well Priyanka's loss in Katrina's gain. Spokesperson for Shree Ashtavinayak, Parag Desai confirmed that Katrina had been signed on for the film. He said "Katrina and Sunil Shetty have been signed recently for Blue."
