There in no denying that she is currently, Bollywood’s lucky mascot as all her movies, be it ‘Namastey London’, ‘Partner’, ‘Welcome’ and ‘Race’ have been declared superhits.

In fact, ‘Welcome’ was such a huge hit that Producer Firoz Nadiawala is planning to make a sequel of the movie; he has proposed the idea to Akshay Kumar, but surprising Katrina has not been approached.

Besides, based on sources close to the production, Firoz is in talks with Deepika and has also offered her the role. There were talks about Katrina giving Kareena a race for her money, but we think its time for Kat to brace up as Deepika is all set to replace her in the sequel.

Earlier, Deepika did the same to Kareena as she bagged the role in a movie being directed by Imtiaz Ali of ‘Jab We Met’ fame and the irony is that Saif is producing the movie.

Katrina is famous for her pairing with Akshay Kumar; now, Deepika has really impressed Akki with her stunts and acting in ‘Chandini Chowk to China’ and the ‘Khiladi’ is busy suggesting her name to filmmakers.

Kat for sure needs to reinvent herself so that she gets a grand ‘Welcome back’.

Do we see a repeat of that in his next film – Saif’s debut as a producer starring Deepika Padukone and Saif himself? “I hope so. This film, however, is a departure from Jab We Met. It is about contemporary relationships in the modern world. It brings across a fresh, young perspective of fresh, young people. And it is a story with more than two people in it. The film is a work-in-progress as of now,” he adds.

Why didn’t Imtiaz sign Kareena for the film? She even requested him to take her in all his future films after receiving the Filmfare best actress award for JWM. “Kareena wasn’t a perfect match for the film. There is something called casting and it is of critical importance to every film.

You don’t want to take a girl who you know so well, love so much and share a great rapport with just because of all these reasons I just mentioned. It is unfair to the movie and to the girl herself. On the other hand, I don’t know Deepika personally or equally well but I know she can be of good use to the character.

Kareena didn’t fit into this script naturally. She can say anything to me because it is really between friends. She is not my chaddi buddy, we don’t chat around, call each other but we were a great team at work. And sometimes that is better than being socially acquainted,” says Imtiaz, adding, “Casting Kareena in my next would have been like saying ‘Cast Sanjeev Kumar in Dharmendra’s role in Sholay because he has delivered a terrific performance in Sita Aur Gita!’ Would that be accepted?”

WE GOT YOUR POINT. YOU COULD HAVE JUST GAVE A ONE LINE SENTENCE SAYING I HATE KAREENA AFTER HER ACCEPTANCE SPEECH. INSTEAD IMTIAZ ALI WROTE A ONE PAGE LONG ESSAY
