There was a strong buzz doing the rounds that Kangana Ranuat would be starring opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Aanand L Rai’s film. But according to a report in BollywoodLife.com, Kangana has apparently lost out on the film to Katrina Kaif.
Apparently, Aanand was keen on casting Kangana opposite Shah Rukh. However considering how he apparently had a tough time shooting with Kangana during Tanu Weds Manu Returns, he’s now planning to finalise Kat for the role. Rumour has it that Kat is likely to sign the dotted line in the next few days.
An insider was quoted saying, “Kangana is invested in a film beyond her own responsibility. She likes to collaborate on the script, costume and other departments. And Aanand had become uncomfortable with that even in Tanu Weds Manu Returns. He appreciates that she wants to be involved every step of the way, but he doesn’t want to risk casting two headstrong personalities like Shah Rukh Khan and Kangana in the same film.”
