Bollywood’s two leading ladies Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif have both been known for their caliber to pull off action scenes. And apparently, in the upcoming sequel ‘Don 3’, we would get to see Katrina as the leading lady instead of Priyanka Chopra. Although no confirmations have been made about the same, it certainly looks like Kaif is the first choice for Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Don 3’ as Chopra is caught up with previous commitments.
Priyanka Chopra starred with SRK in the first two installments of the film, ‘Don’ and ‘Don 2’. However the actress currently has a lot on her plate, which makes it easier to believe that the filmmakers might in fact be on a hunt for a fresh face. Sources close to the film revealed that things are being kept under wraps specially, but Katrina Kaif is surely being eyed for the role.
In order to put the speculations to rest, producer Ritesh Sidhwani had earlier tweeted announcing that the film’s cast will remain the same. However with the latest developments, it seems like changes are being made in the script to make space for Katrina Kaif’s new character to enter the plot. This will be her second film with Shah Rukh Khan after their film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ directed by Yash Chopra.
Katrina Kaif is currently busy with the shoot of her films ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ and ‘Fitoor’. She also has ‘Jagga Jasoos’ coming out with beau Ranbir Kapoor. The actress has earlier pulled off some action sequences in the films ‘Phantom’ and ‘Bang Bang’. It will definitely be interesting to see her in an action packed avatar opposite Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Don 3’.
Priyanka Chopra who has her hands full with ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and her American show ‘Quantico’ is on a nonstop roll of doing back to back projects. If the news is anywhere to be true, we wonder what reaction we will get to see from PeeCee on knowing that Katrina Kaif has replaced her in ‘Don 3’!
