While earlier YRF would only repeat actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan within their projects, lately they’ve been picking actresses too for repeat projects. With Rani Mukerji and Anushka Sharma doing eight and five YRF films respectively, Kat too had her great amount with five big releases using the company.
But it appears like the situation may have now changed. A birdie chirps to state, “When YRF directors have suggested Katrina for lead roles within their films, Adi has referred replacement actresses.”
An industry insider highlights to two occasions when Adi roped in other leading ladies instead of Kat. A bitchy actress says, “When Ali Abbas Zaffar announced his second film with YRF after Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, it had been expected that Katrina could be his heroine much like his first project. Instead, they went for Priyanka Chopra.”
After which Adi shot down having Kat too within their next Ayushmann Khurrana starrer, and instead picked Sonam Kapoor.
Another source says, “Kat has featured in YRF’s biggest blockbusters, which too back-to-back. Maybe he’s suffering from a Katrina overdose!”
