Katrina Kaif has fast emerged as one of the most sought after actresses in Bollywood. It’s no wonder that one of the top production houses in Bollywood, Yash Raj Films, has signed the actress for 3 more films.
Katrina Kaif, who has already worked in 2 YRF films ‘New York’ and ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’, both of which were successful at the box office, will now be working in 3 more Yash Raj Films… ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ with Salman Khan, ‘Dhoom 3’ with Aamir Khan and an untitled project with Shah Rukh Khan.
This is the first time in YRF history that an actress has got such tremendous offer.
“I am just grateful to be working with such big directors and stars. I believe that the success of a film is in the hands of destiny. I look at it as a job where I have to give the best that I can. I have always learned something from every actor I have worked with, so I hope to learn from Shah Rukh and Aamir too,” said the actress enthusiastically to a daily.
It’s been rumored that Katrina Kaif has replaced Rani Mukerji as Aditya Chopra’s favorite. But the sources say that the only reason Katrina was signed for 3 films on trot is her success ratio at the box office.
“Kat was seen as the reason behind Mere Brother Ki Dulhan`s success. She was the calling card of the film. Promotional strategies were planned around her and she pulled it off. She cemented her position in the industry, that’s why she is the only actress who has signed three films with Aditya. On paper, all three films have approximately 200 crore riding on them,” said a source.
Reinforcing the point YRF spokesperson said, “The decision to have Katrina in three films was made on the basis of only one parameter - the script - followed by the director’s vision. Katrina was always the director’s first choice for two of those three films.”
