Katrina out Kareena in, opposite Salman
It’s finally confirmed!
Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri’s next project, a remake of the Malayalam hit ‘Bodyguard’ will have the stunning beauty Kareena Kapoor play the lead lady opposite Sallu Bhai.
Rumors had it that Katrina Kaif would be essaying the lead role, but
Atul clarifies, “See, we have already decided to release our film during the Eid week next year. Since Katrina has committed her dates to other projects, we decided to cast an actor whose dates would match with Salman’s and would facilitate the release of the film during the festive week next year.”
However, Salman-Kareena pair wasn’t much appreciated by the audience.
“It all depends on the film and how the audience takes to it. Why blame a pair for its failure? Besides, they may be third time lucky with my film,” Atul smiles.
Directed by Siddique, the film has music by Pritam.
