Katrina Kaif has finally agreed to star in Yash Raj Films' Dhoom 3 opposite Aamir Khan.
The big question that this confirmation throws up is, will cool Kat go ahead with wearing a bikini in the film.
For those who came in late, Katrina was always the first choice for the role. However, a precondition for doing the role was that Katrina would have to wear a two-piece in a couple of scenes in the film.
The superstar actress, despite being eager to work in the film, was reluctant to sport a bikini. While confirming Katrina's acceptance of the role, the makers of Dhoom 3 did not, however, mention whether she will wear a two-piece in the film.
Earlier, when Katrina was hesitating to do the role, the makers tried scouting for a fresh face.
"We were unable to find the perfect debutante to play the lead role after almost a year of searching. Briefly, we also tried roping in an international actress but were still unable to find someone who would stand out," Vijay Krishna Acharya, director of the film, said . "Both (YRF head honcho) Aditya Chopra and I really wanted to be sure that the actress we chose is perfect for the role. Katrina was an obvious choice for all of us. She is someone who we all know will bring tremendous enthusiasm and commitment to the film. This is also the first time Aamir and Katrina will unite on the screen. That certainly adds value to the project," Vijay said. Barring her debut film Boom , Katrina has refrained from wearing a bikini in her career so far.
In fact in her eight-year career, she has largely avoided excessive skin show. The actress, regarded as the most saleable female star by many, has been following the norm of avoiding bold scenes ever since she started dating Salman Khan.
Katrina was recently seen kissing Hrithik Roshan in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara , but that scene was filmed during the phase when she and Salman had briefly broken up.
The buzz on Dhoom 3 suggests Katrina would not only have to sport a bikini, she may also have to share a passionate smooch with Aamir. The Dhoom films have always had scenes that require the heroines to expose in beachwear and also do intimate scenes.
In the first film, Esha Deol got a hot makeover and was seen flaunting a toned body in a bikini. In Dhoom 2, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan sported two-piece beachwear and also shared a kissing scene with Hrithik Roshan.
Thursday's decision to go with Katrina for Dhoom 3 was taken after a lot of discussion and several meetings between Aditya Chopra and Vijay Krishna Acharya.
Meanwhile it seems Katrina has become YRF's new muse.
Her latest YRF production, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan , is already a big hit. The film has grossed Rs 50 crore in less than two weeks. She has two other YRF productions lined up - Ek Tha Tiger opposite Salman and Yash Chopra's comeback directorial feature opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
