Mumbai: Shraddha Kapoor who has been an admirer of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi finally…
Mumbai:Katrina Kaif was to star in Rhea Kapoor’s directorial venture — a chick flick starring Sonam Kapoor. But that isn’t happening anymore.
The latest we hear, Katrina Kaif is not doing the film. An insider tells us, “Sonam and Katrina share a great camaraderie and Rhea wanted to explore more of that in her next film. Perhaps, it wasn’t meant to be.”
Says an insider, “Katrina is no more a part of the project. The character that she was to play had to speak like Delhi girl and since Kat couldn’t pull that off, there was talk of dubbing her voice which she wasn’t comfortable with.
So that didn’t work out.”
The film is about four Delhi girls on a road trip. Tentatively titled Veeray Di Shaadi, the makers had also approached Huma Qureshi too for one of the roles. “Huma too opted out as she is in talks for a biopics on an athlete currently,” the khabri reveals.
Rhea wants to change the terrain of Hindi films by making the first big budget chick-flick. The Kapoor sisters want to make this genre as popular as it is in the West. So they are taking their time to cast it. The new joinee in the group is her bestie Swara Bhaskar. “Sonam and Swara are friends and their on-screen chemistry is amazing. Swara has loved her part and since this isn’t just another women-oriented film but a fun chick flick with a prominent role, she grabbed the role.” our source adds.
Sonam has not yet announced her next film and wants to take a small break before she starts her next. Will Rhea’s film be her next film? Or will it be Battle for Bittora?
