Mumbai, Mar 28: Actress Katrina Kaif has denied being approached to star opposite Shahrukh Khan in Rahul Dholakia’s Raees. There was a buzz that both the stars will be seen together again in the Farhan Akhtar production after Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
“I don’t know where this news has come from. There is no such discussion like that till now. There are three films Bang Bang, Phantom and Jagga Jassos that I am doing right now. I am in talks for two more projects which I can’t reveal,” Katrina told PTI.
Even Rahul dismissed the report and said, “I don’t think we have approached her. But we will surely finalise the leading lady in a couple of weeks.”
Apparently, Katrina has been offered a role in Ashutosh Gowariker’s period film. But the actress was not in mood to reveal any details and she neither denied nor confirmed doing it.
“I feel for whatever films I am in discussion with a filmmaker it is not correct to talk about it unless one is doing it (the film) because if it doesn’t work out then it makes things awkward for the people and the project,” she said.
Presently, Katrina is busy with Bang Bang opposite Hrithik Roshan and Jagga Jasoos with rumoured boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
The actress has delivered two hit films with Ranbir earlier in Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani and Raajneeti.
“Both the films that Ranbir and I did were really liked by people and were successful. It is exciting for me to work with Ranbir again, he is a great actor. Director Anurag Basu is one of the finest directors that we have today and I am privileged to work with him,” she said.
Besides, she has Kabir Khan’s Phantom with Saif Ali Khan, with whom she is pairing up for the first time.
