On one hand, one of her ex-boyfriends Ranbir Kapoor has become the sole reason of her tiff with director Karan Johar. On the other, her another ex-boyfriend Salman Khan has again taken the charge of her career.
Ranbir Kapoor, says a report in a leading daily, has been roped in for Karan Johar’s next film. And that has resulted in the Kapoor lad spending a lot of time with KJo. And that, in turn, has led to Katrina alienating herself from Karan. A source told the daily, “Ranbir Kapoor was a fanboy of Sanjay Dutt. He looked up to him as a guru in many ways. Now it looks like that position has been taken over by Karan Johar. Ranbir is closer to Karan than he is to anyone else. He adheres to whatever advice the filmmaker gives him, especially now, after Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. “While KJo is producing Dragon, the buzz is that Ranbir will also act in his next directorial,” added the source.
This newfound closeness between KJo and Ranbir has led to Katrina not being able to spend any time with the filmmaker. Added to that is the fact that Karan’s production starring Katrina is currently on hold.
While one relationship is in trouble, another is blooming again. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s relationship seems to have come full circle. After a working equation that led to an alleged relationship, and then a break-up, the two will be back together in a film very soon — a Salman Khan production at that.
Says a friend of the actor, “He has again taken charge of Katrina’s career. When she first came to Mumbai, it was Salman who introduced her to filmmaker friends including Sanjay Leela Bhansali and David Dhawan. Now that her career has hit a roadblock, he is helping her find her way again.”
The two will appear in Ek Tha Tiger sequel, apart from Salman’s home production to be directed by his brother-in-law, Atul Agnihotri. The shoot for the sequel will begin in March this year and the home production will go on floors by the end of the year.
