Is this true? Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan to team up for Karan Johar’s next

Whenever we hear Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan in one single statement, sparks start flying in the air. The two stars, who once made for the hottest couple of B-town, have let their curt breakup be a bygone and moved forward. They would seen together in Ali Abbas Zafar’s directorial ‘Tiger Zinda Hai‘ . But hey, that may not be the only project starring the two. If reports are to be believed then Salman and Katrina would also share screen space in Karan Johar‘s next film.

Reportedly, this film had to have Fawad Khan in the lead role opposite Katrina, but following the ban on Pakistani artistes after ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, KJo decided to rope in Salman Khan for this role. He is quite aware of the crackling chemistry that Salman and Katrina share and hence, made the decision. A source revealed to DNA, “While KJo’s next directorial will be with Ranbir Kapoor, he wants to produce a film with Salman and Katrina in the lead as he finds their chemistry sizzling. Earlier, the same film was to star Pakistan actor Fawad Khan along with Katrina, but with the ban on Pakistani actors during ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, that is not happening. Hence the filmmaker was keen to rope in Salman. The script is being reworked for ‘Dabangg’ Khan and to make the character more suitable to him. The pre-production work on the film has begun.”

Excited already! (Also Read:Does the trailer of ‘Tubelight’ lack the desired impact as compared to other Salman Khan films?)
