There were reports that the actor, director and producer, Arbaaz Khan was considering casting Katrina Kaif in his next film ‘Dolly Ki Doli’ but he has finally signed the Sonam Kapoor to play lead in the film.
Khan’s next production venture ‘Dolly Ki Doli’ is a women centric film which will be directed by debutant Abhishek Dogra.
Before Sonam Kapoor was brought for the role, we had learnt that Arbaaz had approached Katrina Kaif for the Dolly Ki Doli. Since his brother superstar Salman Khan isn’t part of the movie maybe he thought of casting a bankable starlet so he might be seeing Katrina in this regard.
Then we wonder why Arbaaz planned to rope-in Sonam Kapoor. Maybe too much has been said about Katrina’s personal life of late and her relation with Salman Khan is also not-so-warm. So to keep things neutral, Arbaaz went for a safer option, we wonder.
Personally, a wise decision by Arbaaz Khan considering his elder brother is close to him but professionally we aren’t sure because Sonam hasn’t pulled of a film on her own till now…
Dolly Ki Doli is scheduled to go on floors in January next year. Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam will carry the role of a north Indian girl.
“We wanted a girl who can do justice to the character. I’m happy to have Sonam onboard. When we narrated the script to her, she admitted that she could instantly identify with Dolly,” Arbaaz told media and confirmed.
