Katrina Kaif was the first choice for Barfi!
Barfi! is certainly one of the most awaited films of this year. Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’Cruz are being appreciated for their roles already, but very few people know that Katrina Kaif was the first choice for Ileana’s role. Yes! You read it right. The director of the film, Anurag Basu wanted Kat for the film as Ranbir and Kat have a great onscreen chemistry.
As per sources, Anurag always wanted Katrina for the role, but that couldn’t be worked out. Talking about the same, Anurag says, “For Ileana’s role, Katrina was the first choice, but because of Rockstar the deal was getting delayed.”
The director further adds, “I feel, it’s all about destiny, maybe this role was in Ileana’s destiny, and she got it. She was an instinctive choice after Katrina, for this role. I wanted the pair- RK and Katrina to come back as they look nice together.”
Well, it’s time to see if Ileana will be able to recreate the magic Ranbir and Kat created!
