Katrina scores over Kareena


Director Prakash Jha, it seems, can’t forget the magic that Rajneeti and Katrina Kaif created for him. The buzz is that he’s going ahead with Kat for his next film as well, titled ‘Satyagrah’. So far, the battle for the female lead was being keenly fought by Kareena Kapoor and Katrina but now it appears that Kat has eventually won this round. Sources say that Prakash will once get her to sport a de-glam image, similar to that of ‘Rajneeti’. Right now the only hitch in the project is Kat’s dates but the filmmaker is working on that too. An insider from Jha camp says, “The dates really shouldn’t be much of a problem. Jha and Katrina have shared such a great working relationship, that she’s eager to accommodate ‘Satyagrah’ into her busy schedule. She has tremendous respect for the director, since he gave her the chance to prove that she could act too, besides being a glam doll.” Taking the casting a step further, Jha has apparently even asked Madhuri Dixit-Nene to be part of the cast. Madhuri had earlier worked with him in ‘Mrityudand’. The icing on the cake is that Katrina will be paired opposite favourite screen hero Akshay Kumar.
