There are strong reports doing the rounds that Kriti Sanon will be playing the lead role in the Hindi remake of Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, which will reportedly be helmed by ace director Anurag Kashyap. We now hear that Alia Bhatt was in contention for the same role too. A source close to the project reveals, “When the makers were contemplating the cast for this project initially, they looked at two actresses who are at the top of their game for the lead role, Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon.” The source further adds, “They eventually went to Kriti Sanon and locked her, who is becoming a bigger casting option lately but Alia Bhatt was in contention too.”

As per reports, the character is that of an assassin, termed as the deadliest woman in the world. There is a lot of action and a lot of emotions in the narrative, much like the original film. Given this brief, Kriti is the most appropriate choice for the makers as she even has the physicality to carry this role.

The rights of the film were bought by producer Nikhil Dwivedi a couple of years ago. Alia Bhatt, who is also a great actor and has proved that with multiple films, is currently busy preparing for her various upcoming projects which include Gangubai Kathiawadi, Darlings, Brahmastra, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem kahaani and RRR.

On the other hand, Kriti Sanon, who has blown everyone’s minds with her phenomenal performance in Mimi which has become a game-changer for her, will be seen next in Adipurush, Bhediya, Bachchan Pandey, Ganapath and Hum Do Hamaare Do.
