Katrina or Jacqueline? Confusion looms over leading lady for ‘Sooryavanshi’

Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty’s cop drama Sooryavanshi went on floor in Goa some time ago. The actor is expected to begin the shoot soon but is yet to find a leading lady for the film. The reports suggest that Jacqueline Fernandez and Katrina Kaif are being considered for the role.

A source says,” Katrina’s name was in discussion in the beginning and that time Rohit had denied that she is part of the film. Some time ago, Jacqueline’s name was also in the news, but the makers have not clarified about it. Now both ladies are being considered for the role and Akshay thinks Katrina fits the bill perfectly.”

Incidentally, people associated with the project claim that the female lead in the film will have limited role to play in a similar fashion how Sara Ali Khan essayed a small part in Simmba. It was also said Katrina too is interested in working with Akshay and was keen to be part of his historical offering Prithviraj Chauhan.
