Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif“>
Now this has to be one of the biggest developments in tinsel world in recent times. Regardless of their on-off personal relationship, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif would be pairing up again. This would be for Joker where the two are all set to shake a leg with Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha in a specially designed song and dance sequence. Though both are yet to sign on the dotted line, sources claim that it would be a mere formality. The song would be picturised post monsoons once the principle shooting of Joker would be wrapped up.
Says a source attached to the film, “Joker is a big film and to substantiate the hype it is generating, it was obvious that there were more added attractions to it. The makers always had a place for a highlight song and dance sequence in the film. While Akshay and Sonakshi, the main leads in the film, obviously feature in the song, Shirish wanted to spice it up further. This is where he thought of Salman and Katrina.”
This would perhaps be the first time ever when two top superstars would be roped in for a guest appearance in an item number. Though earlier there have been numerous instances of big stars giving their nod of approval to participate in a jig (Salman recently did that with ‘Wallah Re Wallah‘ in Tees Maar Khan), one has seldom seen a couple coming together for a similar act.
“What further makes it interesting is the fact that this couple is none other than Salman and Katrina”, continues the source, “The world has been speculating around whether they can see eye to eye or not but the fact is that they are quite decent with each other. They share a very cordial relationship and since Katrina is quite close to Salman’s family, there will never be any awkward moments between the two.”
Even professionally it only works for all involved to have this specially designed number turn into a reality. For Joker, presence of Salman and Katrina along with Akshay and Sonakshi will suddenly make the film look a lot bigger. Also, Katrina has benefited immensely from ‘Sheila Ki Jawaani‘ and one doesn’t see any reason for her to say no to the same makers when it comes to Joker. As for Salman, he has always been there for friends and since he shares a good camaraderie with Farah, Shirish (he worked with him in Jaan-E-Mann) as well as Akshay, he can well be expected to be just a call away.
When contacted, Shirish wasn’t willing to go into details. However he did confirm that such a song has indeed been designed and there would be two superstars who would be joining Akshay and Sonakshi on the dance floor. “There are things moving in that direction for sure”, he smiles, “However, let me not divulge too much into who would feature in this song. Let that be a surprise for a while naa. Why to let the cat out of bag so soon?”
Hope by cat, he indeed meant Kat here!
