Is Anushka Sharma a part of Katrina Kaif and Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Aanand L Rai’s next?

If things work as planned, Anushka Sharma too will be a part of Aanand L Rai’s next, featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif. The movie was earlier said to star Deepika Padukone, but the actress couldn’t work out on her dates and had to opt out of the venture. And now the makers have apparently approached Anushka Sharma to replace Deepika.

The shooting for the film starts by the end of this April, and the makers are soon to make an official announcement of the starcast. “Anand and SRK met a few nights ago and discussed the possibilities. After Deepika said no to the film, they have offered it to Anushka. They will also be sitting for a narration together and give her a script reading either later this week or early next week. Anushka will hear it and decide if she wants to do it. But she is their first choice now, after DP,” reveals a source.

While Katrina plays herself in the film, Anushka will play SRK’s romantic interest in  the flick.

“Katrina and Anushka share a great rapport and they are extremely close to Shah Rukh. So, if Anushka says yes, it will be the ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan‘ cast returning with Anand’s film,” adds our source.

If not Anushka, it is said that Sonam might also be approached for the film. Let us wait for the final announcement of the same now.
