Aditya Roy Kapoor to romance Katrina Kaif in 'Fitoor'

Sushant Singh Rajput backing out of Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Fitoor’ proved blessing for the ‘Aashiqui 2’ star Aditya Roy Kapoor in disguise.  Aditya got a golden chance to star alongside Katrina Kaif in ‘Fitoor’.

Sushant Singh Rajput was supposed to play the lead role in the film but ‘Fitoor’ dates clash with Shekhar Kapoor’s ‘Paani’ and Sushant preferred Paani over Katrina Kaif. Kat agreed to pair opposite Sushant but now the ‘Fitoor’ team are awaiting for her reply as the lead actor of the film now changed. They are hoping that the diva won’t have any problem as Aditya already became a star with ‘Aashqui 2’ success.

Reveals a source as why Sushant backed out of the film, “Fitoor is being produced by UTV and they now want Aditya Roy Kapoor to do the film. They also produced Abhishek Kapoor’s last film so the director was not in the best position to negotiate.” Continues the insider, “When Sushant was signed for Fitoor the film was being produced by Balaji and was to start this month. Then the film changed hands and came to UTV. Sushant was waiting for it to start, then in August Abhishek told Sushant that the script was undergoing some changes and they wouldn’t  start shooting in October. When Sushant asked when they would start, he was told: Next year but we can’t confirm exactly when.”

“Last week, Sushant met Abhishek and requested him to shift the shooting dates of Fitoor to October next year but the director said that they couldn’t do that. Because his dates had to match those of the leading lady Kartine Kaif, who has given the green signal for July 2014. Now it is being made to look like Sushant has ditched Gattu for Paani but it isn’t like that.”

More news from ‘Fitoor’, Sridevi was approached to play a negative role in the film but she opted out as it does not go with her character. Tabu will be seen in a pivotal role.

This is the first time Katrina Kaif will be paired opposite Aditya and it is expected that the audience will like the fresh pairing.
