If latest reports are anything to go by, Bollywood diva Katrina Kaif is all set to team up with Sidharth Malhotra once again after their 2016 film ‘Baar Baar Dekho’. Reportedly, the makers of the upcoming biopic on Kargil martyr Vikram Batra have approached the gorgeous actress to play the female lead in the project. The biopic, which was recently announced by Karan Johar and Shabbir Boxwala, stars Malhotra as Vikram Batra.
A report published in a National daily says that the makers have just approached the actress for the film and she has yet not signed it on the dotted line. “The makers had a meeting with Katrina recently. They are keen to have her on board. Though, the actress is yet to sign on the dotted lines,” reveals a well-placed source.
Interestingly, Sidharth and Katrina’s ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ was produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Production, and Vikram Batra biopic is also coming from the same stable. It looks like even after the dismal performance of ‘Baar Baar Dekho, Karan believes that the duo has the power to draw audiences to theatres.
Meanwhile, Katrina is currently busy shooting for Aanand L Rai’s ‘Zero’ and Vijay Krishna Acharya’s ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’. Both films will hit screens in the last quarter of the year. Sidharth, on the other hand, has been confirmed for Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Shotgun Shaadi’, along with the Vikram Batra biopic.
Malhotra was last seen in Neeraj Pandey’s espionage drama ‘Aiyaary’. The film, made on a lavish budget, bombed at the box office on its opening day itself. After the failure of the highly-anticipated movie, several media outlets reported that many filmmakers have started keeping a distance from Malhotra. But looks like he winning everyone’s confidence back.
