While people can’t stop appreciating the wonderful casting of Farah Khan’s Happy New year as Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone chemistry will again be revisited after Chennai Express, news reports suggest that SRK was initially paired up with his Jab Tak Hai Jaan co-star Katrina Kaif.


According to news reports from a leading daily, Katrina was initially offered the lead role opposite SRK in Farah Khan’s next directorial Happy New Year but the actress had to refuse the film citing genuine date issues.

The actress also has in the pipeline Kabir Khan’s next directorial that will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Abhishek Kapoor’s next film which will be an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic novel  Great Expectations .

Sources also suggest that she would have been unsuitable for the role because the lead actress of Happy New Year must be fluent in Marathi and Katrina would have taken a long time to master that!
