So, is it Kareena Kapoor or Katrina Kaif? Who is Shah Rukh Khan’s leading lady in Rohit Shetty’s next film? The media has been agog with rumours that the maverick filmmaker has zeroed in upon these two heroines for his Chennai Express. But the fact is that no leading lady has still been finalised for the film which will go on the sets either in mid-2012 or in the second half of next year.
Said Rohit Shetty to koimoi.com, “I don’t know from where the news about Kareena and Katrina surfaced. Frankly speaking, the role is just not meant for Katrina. As for Kareena Kapoor, I will definitely narrate her the subject once it is complete, but to insinuate that she has already been signed or even approached for the film is nothing short of reckless speculation.”
So, there. As of now, it is neither Kareena nor Katrina. The filmmaker is busy with his under-production film, Bol Bachchan, and his TV show, besides, of course, the script of Chennai Express. But the casting of the leading lady would definitely have to wait for now at least.
