Katrina Kaif is peeved at endless speculations in the media that she is a part of Dhoom 3, co-starring Aamir Khan. “I thought Yash Raj had cleared the air on that one by issuing a press release to the effect,” she grouses.
Reacting to a report that the actor had bagged the coveted lead in the third installment of the Dhoom franchise and was already undergoing special training for it, the production house had asserted, “Katrina is currently preparing for her role in Ek Tha Tiger that goes on floors soon. We would like to once again reiterate that we are still looking for a fresh face to play the female lead in the much-awaited movie and that, as of now, no one has been cast.”However, despite the denials, the buzz surrounding her refuses to die down and recently it was said that she could lose out on the Dhoom 3 unless she agreed to wear a bikini. Given that her contemporaries like Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have worn a swimsuit for films like Kambakkht Ishq (2009) and Don (2006) respectively, and Katrina herself had flaunted one in her first film, Boom, back in 2003, YRF was said to be firm on the issue. And had a second choice—a newcomer—lined up if she refused to toe the line.
“I have nothing to do with this film,” retorts Katrina. “I’ve just wrapped up one Yash Raj film, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan with Imran (Khan) and have two others lined up. One is with Yash Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan and the other is Ek Tha Tiger with Kabir Khan and Salman Khan. Bas (that’s it), that’s more than enough work for me for this year. Rest is misreporting.”
