However, since the deal could not strike, they chose to feature Aishwarya. Katrina did not know that she was replaced by Aishwarya.

A source said, “Ash's name was announced with great fanfare. But it was actually Kat who had been approached first and she had even signed the dotted lines. However, the contract got stuck for some unknown reason and she was unceremoniously dropped from the project.”

When Katrina’s spokesperson was contacted, latter said, “Kat is approached by many brands and it is not possible to sign all of them. It is not fair to discuss any names.”

However a friend of Kat was quoted as saying, “Kat had no idea she had been replaced by Ash.”

This was enough for a cat fight between the two actresses.e company confirmed that earlier Katrina was contacted for the photo shoot. A company spokesperson said, “We were in discussions with various individuals and could not proceed with Katrina due to certain clashes in her positioning vis-a-vis our brand positioning. The discussions with her took place in May and early June.”
