Katrina to play Ranbir's lady

Katrina Kaif at IIFA awardWorld’s sexiest woman Katrina Kaif and Bollywood’s starling actor Ranbir Kapoor has been cast opposite each other by director Prakash Jha for his forthcoming political thriller Rajniti. This is the first time Kat would act opposite any actor of her age. Actually Katrina had shot some scenes with Ranbir in the upcoming flick Bachna Ae Haseeno but those scenes had been chopped off due to movie's over length. But this incident did not hurt her and she again accepted to play his leading lady.

Prakash Jha who masters in political thriller like Gangajaal, Apaharan and Mrityudand zeroed upon Katrina as she looks quite convincing for the role. He wanted a girl that looks intelligent, modern and cultured and Kat fits to the role perfectly. He too feels that she matches up to Ranbir quite well and their pair sizzles.

Rajniti delves into the story of Mahabharata and it stars Ajay Devgan, Manoj Bajpai, Vivek Oberoi and Nana Patekar. Ajay will play a modern day Karna, Nana Patekar has been cast as Lord Krishna. Manoj Bajpai will play a modern day Duryodhan, while Ranbir in the main character of Arjun.
