Katrina Kaif, who's paired with Ranbir Kapoor in Raj Kumar Santoshi's Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, seems to be getting into the let's-get-young mode.
She has now been signed to star opposite Neil Nitin Mukesh in Yash Raj banner's next venture to be directed by Kabir Khan and the hero says they will make a good couple on screen.
"Kabir made a very unusual film Kabul Express for Yash Raj earlier. This time he's going all-out to make a commercial film. I think Katrina and I will make a striking pair," Neil told IANS.
All her earlier films have been primarily with the 40-plus Salman Khan, Govinda and Akshay Kumar. Now she's finally working with co-stars nearer her own age.
"I wouldn't know about that. My bonding so far has been with John. I really get along with him. He's so funny and entertaining. Somehow, he reminds me of Dharamji (Dharmendra) with whom I did my first film Johnny Gaddar. The same towering personality, physique and a heart of gold," said Neil.
Let's hope the initial camaraderie lasts through the film. Considering what happened to John's friendship with Arshad Warsi during Khan's Kabul Express one wonders if Neil would be singing the same tune by the time he and John finish shooting together.
