Two leading ladies of Bollywood Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone are again pitted against each other! However, Ranbir Kapoor is not the issue this time. The actresses are fighting to be the leading lady of Akshay Kumar’s Joker.
Joker is an upcoming movie to be made jointly by Akshay’s Hari Om Productions and Farah Khan and Shirish’s Three’s Company. There is a buzz that two leading actresses are in the run to star opposite Akshay in this movie.
A source was quoted saying that both Katrina and Deepika think that they are doing Joker whereas the other one does not know about it. During the shooting of Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan, Kareena had a talk with Akshay regarding this and has taken it for granted that she will be starring in it.
The source added that the recent development is the inclusion of the other lady Deepika as she is best suitable for the script. So, this has left Akshay in a dilemma and he’s trying to find out the best way to inform one of the actresses to take a walk. This has become tougher for Akshay because of his close association with both the ladies and does not like to hurt feelings of either of them.
In the meantime, there was a buzz that Katrina had a fallout with Akshay and this has upset the actress very much. She wants to declare it clearly that she is still very close to the actor.
The co-producer Shirish opted to stay out of any controversy by saying that they are still hunting for the female lead opposite Akshay and have not finalized anyone yet. He added that they are considering the top actresses as it is a performance- oriented role and will make a final decision jointly with Akshay in a week.
Well, now its on Akshay whom he prefers to shed tears and who will enter happily in the Joker team!
