Well, the news of Katrina Kaif moving out from Abbas Mustan’s remake of ‘Italian Job’ is stale but we bring to you the tale behind this so called betrayal as the industry insiders puts it. The story goes like this……
Katrina signed Abbas-Mustan remake of Hollywood thriller ‘Italian Job’, the London beauty in her Bollywood duty even gave her dates for the film which had Abhishek Bachchan as her co-star. Abbas-Mustan then got busy in finalizing the other details for this big project and it took more time then expected. Meanwhile, many top actress of Bollywood approached Abbas-Mustan for a role in this film but Abbas-Mustan refused saying that Katrina is already finalized.
The twist in the tale occurred a couple of weeks back when the director duo wanted to call Katrina for a pre production work but the actress ignored their calls. Initially, they assumed that she might be busy and waited for Katrina to call back but the call didn’t come. After repeated messages Katrina’s secretary showed up saying that Katrina won’t be able to do their film because she has been signed by Yash Raj for a flick co-starring Imran.
This was shocking to Abbas-Mustan as the movie was scheduled to go on floors in a couple of weeks.
The angry producers are looking for a quick replacement and now we hear that the producers Studio 18 is planning to approach producers association to get the hefty sum they had paid to Katrina as advance.
It must be recalled that Studio 18 are the producers of the remake ‘Italian Job’ and had also signed Katrina before for a flick with Imran Khan titled ‘Seven Days In Paris’ to be helmed by the ‘Dhoom’ famed director Sanjay Gadhvi. The film got shelved as there where some script issues and now their next ‘Italian Job’ is facing problems.
Katrina should have remembered that Abbas-Mustan offered her ‘Race’ which made her beautiful legs stand taller then her contemporaries and the director duo has a good standing in the industry.
