Jab Tak Hai Jaan trio SRK, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma to reunite againJun 1, 2017 Abhishree Kulkarni
After sharing the screen space in 2012 in Yash Chopra’s ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan,’ the trio — Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma will now be seen in the much talked about Aanand L Rai next film.
The film, which has become popular as SRK’s dwarf film, has been in the news ever since its announcement and there had been plenty of speculations regarding the leading lady of the film.
According to the rumor mill, after Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt turned down the role due to date issues, the makers have now finally locked its star cast. While Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif were already on board, Anushka Sharma is the final addition to the film.
In a statement, director Aanand L Rai confirmed, “I’m thrilled that Anushka Sharma joins Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif for my next. From our very first meeting, she had an instant connect with the character. She seemed very excited about the challenges that this role entails. She’s at a more than ready stage in her career to essay a complex role like this. We have been working on her look and prepping for the film. It was only once things fell into place that we wanted to announce Anushka’s casting.”
Further a source claimed that, “There were rumors of several actors having signed or being approached for Aanand L Rai’s film but that was pure conjecture by the media. The makers never confirmed or commented on the casting of the female leads before this. Few were aware of the fact that, Shah Rukh Khan had discussed this film with Anushka quite a while ago, while they were shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s film and were looking for the right time to make the announcement.”
As of now the project is tentatively titled ‘Katrina Meri Jaan’ and the shooting for the same has already commenced.
