Katrina Vs Deepika War Spills Into Shah Rukh's Film

This morning, SpotboyE.com popped a very interesting poll question to its readers: Will Katrina ever work with Deepika? (POLL OF THE DAY: Will Katrina ever work with Deepika?).

At the time of going online, over 56% of participants had clicked the ‘No’ option. Well, looks like the majority has got it right this time around. Wonder why I am saying so? Here’s the full story:

So, I heard that Deepika Padukone has been finalised for Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming film with Aanand L Rai (tentatively titled Bandhua).(
Is SRK's film with Aanand Rai titled Bandhua?, Sept 1)

You might have heard that too, and you might have even heard that Katrina Kaif was supposed to star in the film as well.

So what's the truth? Is it going to be Deepika or Katrina? Aisa hai ki Deepika has been confirmed while Katrina has developed second thoughts about the offer.



A source close to the film has told me that Katrina was extremely dejected that Rai had zeroed down on Deepika for one of the roles. It could be a casting coup for Rai, but wasn't he aware that Deepika and Katrina had a certain Ranbir Kapoor in common?

Katrina has never been comfortable with Deepika, even while Ranbir was going steady with her. The Jab Tak Hai Jaan actress' discomfort only multiplied when Ranbir and Deepika broke the ice to become friends and displayed amazing chemistry on screen in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. And now with Ranbir having split with her on a bitter note, it has become all the more difficult for her to have a good rapport with Deepika. "So either she fakes it (rapport) or she leaves it (film), and she chose to leave it," the source quipped.



So while Katrina still has time to get back to Rai and say: 'I am a professional and I don't care who's around me,", we hear that Rai is out in the field to look for other options.

Let's wait for the official announcement. As of now, what's official is only that Rai's film will see SRK playing a dwarf and hit theatres on December 21, 2018.
