Apparently Shraddha Kapoor was more than keen to be part of this film. Then what went wrong?
Katrina Kaif has been finalised to play a part in Thugs of Hindostan, which stars Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan with Fatima Sana Sheikh. Yashraj made an official announcement a couple of days ago about Katrina being cast in the film.However, if sources are to believed then Shraddha Kapoor too was in the race. A source says, “There were lot of speculation about casting of this role. Earlier it was said that Shraddha is being offered to play the same role which Fatima is playing. But she was offered the same role which Katrina will play in the film. It is an important role but it is a cameo.”
Shraddha was spotted at Yashraj Studios few weeks ago and rumours of her being cast as lead started doing the rounds. The buzz is also that Shraddha was actually keen on doing Fatima's role, so she sought appointment with Aditya Chopra. At the meeting, however, she is said to have quoted a phenomenal amount to do the role. This, apparently led to Chopra deciding to not cast her in the film.
Thugs of Hindostan is slated to go on floor next month and will release in Diwali next year. The film is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya
