Salman Khan recommended Katrina Kaif for ‘Veera Di Shaadi’


Rhea Kapoor’s debut directional venture ‘Veera Di Shaadi’ features Kareena Kapoor in the lead alongside Sonam Kapoor. But many may not know that before Kareena, the film was offered to Katrina Kaif. It was Salman Khan who suggested Katrina’s name.

After breaking-up with Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif again turned to Salman to revive her filmy career. When Salman learnt that Rhea Kapoor is making a film, he turned to them to cast Katrina in their film.

According to a source, "It was Salman who recommended Katrina for the film.

He shares an excellent relation with Anil Kapoor, as they've been colleagues for decades. Also, during Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Sonam and he became friends. So when Salman suggested that Sonam and Rhea have a talk with Katrina for the film, and they did."

Salman has been helping Katrina focus on her career, says a source, "He has got Katrina on board for the film with Rajkumar Santoshi as well. It was he who recommended her name there as well."

However, Katrina was dropped from the film because Kat is not getting the Delhi accent right and the makers wanted to dub her voice. But Katrina Kaif wasn't comfortable with that and they drifted apart.
