Salman Khan chooses Deepika over Katrina

Salman Khan is not keen to share screen space with his ex-flame Katrina Kaif again. News is doing the rounds that he has opted for Deepika Padukone instead of Katrina Kaif for the remake of South Indian film, ‘Bodyguard’. Salman Khan’s brother-in-law, Atul Kulkarni is going to remake the film in Hindi. He suggested Kat’s name for the film but Salman wants to have Deepika on the board.

A source says, "Salman is keen on working with Deepika. He feels they will look good on screen. When Atul suggested Katrina's name, he shot it down saying the project needed a fresh pairing. He's watched the original and thought Deepika would fit the role perfectly."

In the past, Deepika had the opportunity to work with Sallu in Anees Bazmee’s ‘Ready’ but later Asin stepped in.

Salman and Katrina last starred in ‘Yuvraaj’.
