Karan Johar is playing a wait and watch game. While he is carefully strategising the arrival of his multiple films next year, when it comes to finalising the cast (especially the leading ladies), there is continuous suspense being built.

“Whether it is the Hrithik Roshan starrer or another film being made with Emraan Hashmi, there is an air of secrecy around the heroines. While it is confirmed that Karan Malhotra and Rensil D’Silva would be directing their second film each for Dharma Productions, all cards are being kept quite close to the chest when it comes to revealing name of the leading lady”, comments an insider.

While it was reported a few days back that Kareena Kapoor would be reuniting with Hrithik Roshan, Karan Malhotra has denied the proceedings. On the other hand Rensil D’Silva is still working on the script of his film with Emraan Hashmi and there is no word on who would be the chosen one for the actress.

“The only heroine who has been confirmed by the production house is Kareena Kapoor and that too is for the second film that would be directed by Punit Malhotra after ‘I Hate Luv Storys‘”, the insider adds, “However there are slots still available for other heroines to walk in to the sets of Karan Johar’s other productions.”

Since Rensil film is not expected to start before end of year and there is still some time before Hrithik Roshan is through with the shoot of ‘Krrish 3‘ before he can come on board for the Malhotra film, it would be some more time before Karan Johar announces his new leading ladies.

“Deepika has really impressed him with what has been shot so far of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani‘. On the other hand Priyanka Chopra too has made amends with him. Katrina Kaif too can’t be ruled out after ‘Chikni Chameli‘ turned out to be a huge factor in ‘Agneepath‘ success. With so many top actresses at his disposal, he can afford to wait before picking and choosing, isn’t it”, a source quips.

Now whether the chosen one would be Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra or someone altogether new? Well, don’t be surprised if there is a surprise waiting round the corner.
