Katrina Kaif to be a single mother
While there is no doubt about the fact that Katrina Kaif is one of the most beautiful, glamorous and popular ladies in Bollywood, she is often criticized by critics for not being a good actor. Katrina recently wrapped up the final schedule of the big budget action thriller ‘Bang Bang’ which will be releasing on 2nd October. While she is involved in ‘Phantom’ with Saif Ali Khan, she is also considering other projects and one of them might change the perspective about her as an actor. As per industry reports Katrina Kaif will be playing a single mother in a woman centric film directed by noted filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh.
The yet untitled project will based on a bestselling Japanese novel ‘The Devotion Of Suspect X’ written by author Keigo Higashino. Sujoy Ghosh apparently approached Vidya Balan and Kangana Ranaut for the role. But after both of them chose not to accept the role, he has started seriously considering Katrina for the role. Katrina herself is said to be looking for meatier roles these days so she may ultimately be a part of this project.
The film will be produced under the banner of Ekta Kapoor’s production house. While there has not been any official announcement, a source close to the project has claimed that the makers have already sent a copy of the novel to Katrina. The source said, “It's an edgy psychological thriller which centers on the cover-up of a murder. The victim's former wife and daughter get embroiled in the operation.” On Katrina’s involvement the source added, “She's read it and thinks it's an incredibly exciting part - something she hasn't ever attempted. However, the script is still in the process of being developed, and the final outcome will be substantially Bollywoodised. The film will only roll early next year.” Katrina has maintained her silence on the project. When contacted, the CEO of the production house, Tanuj Garg said, “We haven't cast anyone yet. The script is still being written.”
Sujoy Ghosh is known to give importance to female actors in his films. His film ‘Kahaani’ with Vidya Balan in the lead earned tremendous applause and now will be remade as a Hollywood production. For this new film, Sujoy needs an actor who would be able to portray a strong single mother and he feels Katrina will be able to do justice. Katrina also played a single mother in the film ‘New York’.
