For years they’ve been missing the opportunity to work together. But finally, Shahid Kapoor and Katrina Kaif will work together in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha director Shree Narayan Singh’s next, Batti Gul Meter Chalu.
The pair has missed being together for years now. Katrina was offered Rajkumar Santoshi’s Phata Poster Nikla Hero and Vikas Bahl’s Shaandaar opposite Shahid. But she opted out citing date problems.
Apparently, Shahid had told mutual friends he felt Katrina was deliberately avoiding working with him. “So this time, although Katrina again had a date issue, she decided to do Narayan’s film, more so because it gives her a chance to play a small-town girl. She will brush up her Hindi to sound convincing.”
Katrina has apparently beaten Shraddha Kapoor and Bhumi Pedneker to grab the role opposite Shahid Kapoor in the movie.
