Having given two consecutive thundering flops with the two other Khan superstars, the doomsday prophets secretly thought that Katrina Kaif would deliver a third flop with the third Khan superstar.
But the record-shattering opening of Bharat has put an end to such stupid superstitious swipes. Bharat made more than Rs. 40 crores on Day 1, bringing to an end the abysmal innings Katrina had with Aamir Khan in Thugs Of Hindostan and Shah Rukh Khan in Zero in 2018.
Salman apparently is happier for Katrina than for himself. One of his friends claimed that the superstar was more worried about the success of Bharat on Katrina’s behalf than himself. “Career-wise things were not going well for Katrina. The tides have turned with Bharat. Nobody will call her a jinx anymore and that is big relief to Bhai.”
Apparently Salman has been recommending Katrina to every filmmaker who is working with Salman. Among them are Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Sajid Nadiadwala who were advised to consider Katrina in Inshallah and Kick 2, respectively. While Bhansali has turned down the suggestion, Nadiadwala one hears, may in all probability cast Katrina who doesn’t want to be repeatedly cast with Salman.
But what can be done if her films with Salman are hits while the ones with other superstars get left behind?
