Katrina Kaif kicks off 2016 with 2 big flicks

2016 has taken off on a good note for Katrina Kaif. Buzz is that two big films featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan have been offered to Kat — one being Don 3 and the other, a film directed by Kabir Khan.

Says a source, “Kabir and Katrina are really thick friends. They’re just a phone call away for each other. In fact, it was Katrina who introduced Kabir to Salman, which led to Ek Tha Tiger and later, the superhit Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Kabir’s film is likely to roll out in the second half of 2016 and Katrina will mostly be a part of it.”

Regarding Don 3, speculation about Kat’s inclusion has been rife despite producer-director Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar denying that the casting is final.

Adds the source, “Katrina Kaif has heard the rough script of the film. Now it all depends on the dates of SRK, who is also keen to take the successful franchise ahead. If all goes well, Katrina, this year will work with Shah Rukh and Hrithik. She is a preferred choice over other heroines for the films, because she has worked with SRK and Hrithik in the past (Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara respectively apart from Bang Bang) and the pairings worked well at the box office.”

Happy 2016, Kat!
