New Delhi: Katrina Kaif started her acting career with the movie ‘Boom’ which also starred Amitabh Bachchan, Gulshan Grover, Jackie Shroff, Madhu Sapre and Padma Lakshmi. The movie failed both critically and commercially. Katrina gained her recognition when she featured alongside Salman Khan, Sohail Khan and Sushmita Sen in the 2005 movie ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya?’. The ‘Apne’ actress then went on to star in several other movies including ‘Namastey London’, ‘Partner’ and others thereby establishing herself as one of the most popular actresses in Bollywood.
The ‘Jagga Jasoos’ actress has since then shared the screen with almost every leading actor in the Hindi film industry. Now, according to the latest reports, Katrina Kaif is all set to star opposite Vijay Sethupathi in Sriram Raghavan’s upcoming movie. Katrina is currently shooting for her upcoming movie ‘Phone Bhoot’ alongside Ishaan Khatter and Siddhant Chaturvedi.
“Katrina has been on the look out to explore different characters in this phase of her career, and when Sriram offered her the part, she was instantly on board the film. While Kat already is committed to doing Tiger 3 from March with Salman Khan, she worked on her date diaries and will be juggling between Sriram’s next and the Maneesh Sharma directed action thriller for a brief period in the summer”, a source told PinkVilla.
The ‘Andhadhun’ director Sriram Ragahvan’s next is also said to be inspired by a short story. The source added, “While the Arun Khetarpal biopic with Varun Dhawan was set to be Sriram’s next after Andhadhun, the film got pushed owing to the on-going pandemic. The script demanded him to shoot in a particular climate and stratosphere, and Ekkis will go on floors around September 2021 now. With ample of free time in hand, Sriram thought of making a quickie of sorts in between, and get another story close to his heart to the spectacle.” The source concluded by saying, “It’s a high concept film, and be made on a controlled budget. Sriram has a close and rather emotional connect with Pune, and like Ek Hasina Thi, Johnny Gaddar, Badlapur and Andhadhun, even this one is based in Pune. The filmmaker is planning one marathon schedule in the city with his entire cast, including Katrina and Vijay.”
Meanwhile, the ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ actress is currently awaiting the release of ‘Sooryavanshi’. She will also be seen starring opposite Salman Khan in ‘Tiger 3’ reportedly.
