Abhishek–Katrina in comedies
Director Rajkumar Santoshi is quite well known for his quirky comedies.
After ‘Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani,' Santoshi is back with yet another comedy film starring Abhishek and Katrina in the lead.
Santoshi says, “I am really looking forward to directing him [Abhishek] for the first time. There's a very mischievous side to his personality, which has not been tapped in any film. When I wrote this script I thought of him immediately."
Again Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham will play lead characters in the gay-comedy ‘Dostana 2.’ Katrina Kaif has also been signed in to play the love interest of the two characters in the film.
Produced by Karan Johar, ’Dostan 2’ might release in the second half of this year.
Katrina eager to work with Junior B
Earlier gossip columns were abuzz with rumors that Katrina had refused to act opposite Abhishek in Abbas-Mustan’s official remake of ‘Italian Job’ and had left the project citing date problems.
But now after signing consecutive films with Abhishek, Katrina has put all rumors to rest about her being reluctant to work with Junior B.
Katrina says, "I had done one of my earliest films (Sarkar) with Abhishek. And it was great fun. Somehow subsequent projects didn't work out.”
She feels that she hardly knows Abhishek as both were complete different persons when they had first shared their screen space in ‘Sarkar’.
Katrina says, “Now that we’ll be doing so much work together I guess the process of getting to know one another will happen automatically.”
