Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan have never been paired as lovers on screen when they were in a relationship. Looks like the ex lovers are making up for all the lost time now, after parting ways.
After coming together for YRF’s Ek Tha Tiger, Salman and Katrina are all set to star in Dharma Productions’ yet untitled project by Rensil D’Silva.
This film hopefully will now break the jinx that has prevented Kat and KJo from working together this far. Katrina was earlier supposed to star in Dharma’s sequel to Dostana with Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham. The project seemed to take rather too long to take off. More recently, Katrina all set to work with KJo’s Dharma in Ayaan Mukerji’s second directorial venture couldn’t allot dates for the same.
As a result of which the Kat-KJo partnership failed to take off once again. “Till the last moment, every effort was made to get Katrina in Ayaan’s project. But it just didn’t work out,” revealed a source close to the project.
Now, after two failed attempts to work with the actress, Karan Johar seems to have made up his mind to cast Katrina in the forthcoming Rensil D’Silva project starring Salman Khan.
Katrina, however, is willing to wait to work with Karan. “It doesn’t matter whether I am in Karan’s film now or later, or never. He’s a dear friend and I really enjoy his company,” said the actress. The Rensil D’Silva film will however go on floors next year.
Another film in Sallu’s 2012 calendar
Rajkumar Santoshi can now breathe easy since his much awaited Salman starrer is finally ready to go on floors early next year. Ramesh Taurani of Tips confirmed the same and said, “We are starting our film with Salman sometime in January or February 2012.”
Salman, who post his Dabangg and Ready success has become one of Bollywood’s most bankable and busy stars, has allotted dates for the Tips project from early next year. The film was announced in 2010 but had failed to take off. “We need just one heroine for this film. We haven’t finalised her yet though,” revealed Taurani.
According to a source close to the film, “Keeping in mind the triple success if Wanted, Dabangg and Ready, Santoshi’s film with Salman will also be a typical mass entertainer.”
Interestingly, both Santoshi and Taurani had major plans to work with Salman which failed to take off in the past. Santoshi has always wanted to make a sequel to his 1994 film Andaz Apna Apna but it never materialised. Ramesh Taurani too had attempted to work with the Khan brothers, Salman, Arbaaz and Sohail in a remake of Amar Akbar Anthony. That too failed to take off. TOI
