Filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar says he always wanted Katrina Kaif to play the bride in his recently released ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ and he hopes that the comedy will change her diva image. Zafar says Kaif, in a joyous and fun loving avatar, is much more relatable to the audience. “Katrina is in total contrast to what she has done in the past. This whole image of her being a Diva would change with this film because she has been presented as a next-door-girl,” Zafar told reporters. Zafar says that Katrina was perfect choice for the role. The debutant also said that he was initially skeptical if the ‘Singh Is Kinng’ actress would agree to do the film because of her busy schedule. “I emailed her in the night and she called me back the very next morning. She said that she really loved the role and wanted get started the moment everything was sealed along with the leading man. Imran Khan came in soon after and we were all set to get the film on floors,” he added.
