Katrina Kaif To Star Opposite Shahid Kapoor In 'Namak'?

Director Prabhu Deva, whose last flick Rowdy Rathore starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha was a major blockbuster, is now gearing up for another massy entertainer titled Namak, which would star Shahid Kapoor and now, sources claim that Katrina Kaif would be signed up for the female lead.

Though Prabhu Deva refused to confirm the news and insisted that he hasn't finalized anyone as he is still considering multiple options, insiders claim that Katrina is the frontrunner for the role. It is also being said that Kat is in talks with Prabhu and Eros, who are producing the movie.

If this casting coup does take place, Sasha, as he is fondly known, and Kat will be seen paired opposite each other for the very first time. Katrina will be next seen romantically paired opposite former flame Salman Khan in spy flick Ek Tha Tiger, which releases on August 15 this year.
