Katrina Kaif, Akshay Kumar to reunite for Salman-KJo joint venture?


Katrina Kaif is on a roll. The actress already has a string of films lined up, including ‘Jagga Jasoos’, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ and Shah Rukh Khan’s untitled film with Anand L. Rai. There were also reports of her starring opposite 'Baahubali' fame actor Prabhas in his next. Now, latest buzz suggests that Katrina will reunite with Akshay Kumar for an upcoming film.

Katrina and Akshay have worked together in movies like ‘Singh Is Kinng’, ‘Namestey London’, ‘Welcome’, ‘De Dana Dan’ etc., and the duo shares an amazing on-screen chemistry. Both of them are likely to come together for the Salman Khan and Karan Johar’s joint production starring Akshay.

Akshay, Salman and Karan had announced about their joint project earlier this year, and the movie will be directed by Anurag Singh, director of super hit Punjabi movies like ‘Jatt and Juliet’ series and ‘Punjab 1984’. Anurag had also coached Katrina to speak in Punjabi in her film ‘Humko Deewana Kar Gaye’, on which he worked as an assistant director to Raj Kanwar.

Buzz is rife that both Salman and Anurag are keen to take Katrina on board the film which also stars Diljit Dosanjh, as per a report in Deccan Chronicle. Reports also suggest that Katrina is keen to work with big superstars now as her movies with young actors like Aditya Roy Kapoor (Fitoor) and Sidharth Malhotra (Baar Baar Dekho) failed terribly at the box office.

If the report turns out to be true, then it will mark the on-screen reunion of Akshay and Katrina after a gap of seven years. They were last seen together in Farah Khan’s 2010 heist comedy ‘Tees Maar Khan’.

Meanwhile, Akshay is currently shooting for R. Balki’s ‘Pad Man’, starring Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte, while Katrina is shooting for ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, sequel to the 2012 blockbuster ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. She is also gearing up for the release of ‘Jagga Jasoos’ opposite ex-flame Ranbir Kapoor, which is slated to hit screens on July 14.
