Katrina replaces Priyanka in ‘Don 3’?


Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif is likely to replace Priyanka Chopra in the third instalment of Shah Rukh Khan starrer hit franchise ‘Don’. There were reports that the ‘Mary Kom’ actress, who starred in the first two films, won’t be a part of ‘Don 3’.

According to reports, Katrina is already in talks with director Farhan Akhtar and has also informed her team that she will get busy with ‘Don 3’ after completing the shoot of ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ and ‘Jagga Jasoos’.

However, the ‘Phantom’ actress has neither confirmed nor denied the news. When asked if she was a part of ‘Don 3’, Katrina said, "That's incredible if that's true. This is all good news to me."

The actress was talking to reporters during a promotion for her upcoming film ‘Fitoor’.

It is also said that she will be seen opposite Hrithik Roshan in Kabir Khan’s next project to be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. Responding to queries about the films, she said, "Both of these are amazing films, I pray that they're happening and that they're happening with me."

Katrina and Shah Rukh have previously worked together in Yash Chopra’s ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. She has also worked opposite Hrithik in Zoya Akhtar’s 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' and Siddharth Anand’s 'Bang Bang'. Their on-screen chemistry was very much appreciated.

With Kabir Khan, Katrina has delivered hits like ‘New York’ and ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. However, their previous outing ‘Phantom’ didn’t do well at the box office.

Meanwhile, Katrina’s upcoming romantic drama ‘Fitoor’ opposite Aditya Roy Kapur is slated to release on February 12. Thereafter, she will be seen opposite Siddharth Malhotra in ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ which releases in September.
