Katrina Kaif’s entry requires Bharat role to be altered

Mumbai:Katrina Kaif says she has always selected films on the "basis of scripts" and this is why she chose to come on board as the leading lady of Bharat after Priyanka Chopra's departure from the project. Apparently, the role was that of a full-on rapid-talking North Indian firebrand or as a source describes it, "Sholay's Basanti on Speed". But we all know Katrina can't play an indigenous Bharatiya nari with that much conviction.

Director Ali Abbas Zafar recently announced that Priyanka had pulled out of the project and had hinted a "very special reason" for the same. He contacted me and said 'Goldfish, I'm gonna send you a script.

"The role was a ideal fit for Priyanka Chopra, and that's why she was signed in the first place". Otherwise, Katrina was the first choice. "But she has stepped in without a moment's hesitation", a source says. That's why she was signed in the first place.

When asked about whether she was apprehensive that she was coming onboard on the back of someone else's exit, she answered "Always, the way that I've chosen my films has always been purely based on the script and the characters". Perhaps some serious Hindi lessons from Priyanka Chopra herself are in order.
