No ‘Chalte Chalte’ recap with Katrina

Shahrukh Khan -Katrina Kaif

Shahrukh Khan -Katrina Kaif

Some of the more keen followers of Katrina and Shahrukh must be aware that the two screen scorchers are teaming up this year for a Yash Chopra film. In fact, the first shoot of this promising flick is all set to go on floors next week. However, it has been learnt that SRK has personally asked Katrina if she is, indeed, comfortable working with him given that he is in war with Katty’s ex flame Salman Khan.

Yes, Shahrukh, who has had a history of the sorts with Salman, during filming of ‘Chalte Chalte’ chose to take the safer route this time by ensuring that Katrina had no qualms about working with him. Years back, Salman had vehemently barged into the sets of ‘Chalte Chalte’ and obstructed the shooting process just because his then-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai was involved in that film. That act had prompted Shahrukh to replace Ash with Rani Mukherjee and it also somewhat soured the relationship between Sallu and the former Miss World.

Of course, Salman has matured a lot since then and has become more sedate and realistic but Shahrukh perhaps didn’t want to take any chances. Moreover, with Yash Chopra getting on with the age, another scuffle would be catastrophic to the film’s chances. However, Katrina has assured Shahrukh that she has no problems in doing a film with him and so proverbially ‘all is well, that ends well….’

Katrina has been a very demure yet confident girl who has climbed the ladders of fame owing to her diligence and dedication. Besides, Salman is no more her boyfriend even though the two share a cordial relationship and are doing a film together with ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ slated for a 2012 Eid release.

Meanwhile, this SRK-Katrina starrer is likely to be released somewhere around Diwali! It’s an untitled project thus far and marks the return of veteran Yash Chopra behind the camera after years. We can expect another epic romance on the cards, we can expect another King Khan rampage, we can expect another vivacious Katrina, but if you are looking for a Salman Khan cameo, then your hopes are likely to be dashed for, no matter what chemistry they share, the equation is on the wall:

Shahrukh Khan + Katrina Kaif= No Salman Khan
