We have rarely seen female action flicks in Bollywood, so news of Vidya Balan and Katrina Kaif teaming up for one is definitely something to be excited about. According to a report in mid-day, the two actors are in talks for an action-comedy to be bankrolled by Tanu Weds Manu maker Aanand L Rai. The filmmaker has reportedly brought on board debutant director Anirudh Ganapathy to direct the film.
A source told mid-day that Anirudh has been associated with Aanand’s production house for many years. “He worked as an assistant director on Happy Bhag Jayegi and Zero. While shooting for Zero, he shared the idea of the film with Katrina, who agreed to be part of the project. Vidya Balan has also been approached for the second lead. The script is in the final stage, and if everything goes well Vidya and Katrina will share screen space for the first time,” the source added.
Earlier, Aanand L Rai had spoken about the failure of Zero. “I won’t say I am disappointed. I will need to understand (what went wrong). This is the story I wanted to say and I made it. After making Ranjhaanaa and Tanu Weds Manu and the second one, this film (Zero) was due for me to make. To take a certain flight and I have not landed on it properly,” he told PTI.
After the epic Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Sanjay Dutt’s pairing Kalank, Karan Johar has managed to bring yet another much-loved on-screen jodi i.e. Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, back on screen. The once superhit jodi last worked in Tees Maar Khan which released in 2010 i.e. nine years back.
It will be after nine whole years that Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, most remembered for their movies like Namaste London, Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, Welcome, De Dana Dhan and Singh Is Kiing, will come back on screen. This time they reunite for Rohit Shetty’s much-awaited movie, Sooryavanshi.
While Rohit Shetty had previously informed that he would announce the leading lady of his cop-franchise movie soon, Karan Johar took to Twitter to confirm all the speculations about Katrina being the leading actress in the film. “Welcoming the #Sooryavanshi girl on board, #KatrinaKaif! Releasing on Eid 2020! @akshaykumar #RohitShetty #HirooYashJohar #ArunaBhatia @apoorvamehta18 @RelianceEnt @RSPicturez #CapeOfGoodFilms @DharmaMovies,” tweeted the producer.
Katrina Kaif has reached 20 million followers on Instagram. And to celebrate the same, the actress took to Instagram to post a video, thanking fans for their love.
