Katrina Kaif is the hero in ‘Rajneeti 2’


The sequel to Prakash Jha’s 2010 blockbuster ‘Rajneeti’ is happening and this time around, Katrina Kaif will take centre-stage as the queen sized politician. Part two will chronicle her rise to power and her subsequent descent to a megalomaniac whose self-serving politics ultimately destroy her. However, those hoping to see Ranbir-Katrina coming together again in the sequel are in for a disappointment. It is learnt Ranbir has opted out, apparently because he wasn’t too kicked about playing side-kick to Katrina in what would be predominantly her film. Prakash Jha confirmed the development and added, “It is very challenging to take the ‘Raajneeti’ story forward. Most of the main characters are dead. Two-thirds of the characters will be completely new. Katrina will have a central role. And though Ranbir’s character didn’t die at the end of ‘Rajneeti’, he won’t be part of ‘Rajneeti 2’. Again, I will be doing a spin on the Mahabharat, though this time, it will be completely different.”
