But you know how it is in Bollywood. A source in the know, states that Katrina has been finally firmed for the dwarf movie – the No. 1 upper in her career since her widely-reported split with Ranbir Kapoor.

Lately, Katrina had been bypassed also by her close friend, Kabir Khan, who had directed her in New York and Ek Tha Tiger. Also, there has been a cripplingdelay in the completion of Jagga Jasoos, in which she co-stars with Ranbir.

The chips seemed to be down for Kat, who did find solace from her mentor Salman Khan but which did not lead to any announcement of a project with the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star.
Meanwhile, the equation between Rai and his regular muse Kangana Ranaut whom the director gave the National Award-winning role in Tanu Weds Manu Returns, has obviously altered for the worse.
So, Katrina is in. This is the second time, after Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan that she has been paired in a lead role with SRK! Way to go, Kats!
