Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif

Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif worked together five years ago in Yash Chopra’s swan song, Jab Tak Hai Jaan (JTHJ), with Shah Rukh Khan. Now, the two actresses are working together again with SRK, in a movie that will be directed by Aanand L Rai. But things will be very different this time.

Says a source, “JTHJ had an important confrontation scene between Anushka and Katrina’s characters. However, in their next untitled film, the two actresses only have scenes with SRK, and not with each other. The story is designed in such a way that one character enters when the other exits from SRK’s life. They don’t meet in the film.”

Like JTHJ, in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, too, Anushka shared screen space with another actress — Aishwarya Rai Bachchan — even though it was just for one scene.

The khabri adds, “In the movie, Anushka plays a character, who is in love with Shah Rukh and is an ordinary village girl. SRK’s character is in love with Katrina, who plays an actress in the film. The story has been altered a lot from its first script to now, and there is absolutely no interaction between the two ladies.”
