Katrina Kaif says Rohit Shetty, director of her upcoming film Sooryavanshi, has thoughtfully worked on the story of the movie. The actress has been roped in as the leading lady opposite Akshay Kumar in the next film in Rohit’s cop franchise.
“It is lovely to be working with Akshay. I have known him for a long time. Rohit is very clear about what he wants from this film. There is a science behind this film and it is meticulously and thoughtfully done,” Katrina told PTI. In “Sooryavanshi”, Rohit has planned special appearance of his two other popular cop characters – “Singham” (Ajay Devgn) and “Simmba” (Ranveer Singh).
Rohit also recently shared his desire to make a female cop film and Katrina Kaif said she is looking forward to the tentative project. “I really hope he makes it. It will be great. I hope he does.”
Meanwhile, there have been speculations about Katrina teaming up withShah Rukh Khan for a remake of “Satte Pe Satta”. But the actor denied saying “this is only a rumour”. Katrina, who is currently promoting her Wednesday release “Bharat”, is also toying with the idea of getting into production. “I have been thinking about it since 2010. There are few ideas and concepts that I have heard and this is the year I want to step in. I am hearing a few things, but I haven’t green lit (anything).”
Currently promoting Bharat, Katrina had recently said, “I am having sleepless nights. So excited I am about ‘Bharat’ that I just can’t wait to see the audience reaction to it. I am happy with the way the film has turned out,” said the actress. Asked about her box-office expectations from the film, she said: “It’s very hard to predict that. I think as long as we get the love and support of the audience and as long as we live up to their expectations, it’s all good.”
‘Bharat’ is written and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. It is jointly produced by Salman Khan’s sister Alvira Khan Agnihotri and her husband Atul Agnihotri, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Nikhil Namit and Salman Khan under the Reel Life Productions, Salman Khan Films and T-Series banners.
