Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif to star in Karan Johar’s ‘Raat Baaki’


According to the latest grapevine, Karan Johar’s next production might have Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead. The film tentatively titled ‘Raat Baaki’. Karan was supposed to make the film with Fawad Khan and Katrina Kaif but the ban of Pakistani artists to work in India had him change his mind about casting Fawad.

Says a source, “While KJo’s next directorial will be with Ranbir Kapoor, he wants to produce a film with Salman and Katrina in the lead as he finds their chemistry sizzling. Earlier, the same film was to star Pakistan actor Fawad Khan along with Katrina, but with the ban on Pakistani actors during Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, that is not happening. Hence the filmmaker was keen to rope in Salman. The script is being reworked for Dabangg Khan and to make the character more suitable to him. The pre-production work on the film has begun.”

Meanwhile, Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan are working for Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, the sequel to their 2012 blockbuster ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. ‘Tiger Zinda Hai ‘is slated to release around Christmas weekend this year.
