But now, the director is teaming up for his new project which he is prepping to commence in December this year. As ‘Om Shanti Om’ debutante heroine will be busy in doing Sanjay Leela Bansali’s ‘Padmavati’ which is slated to go on the floors by the end of this year, Aanand turned towards the ‘Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani’ actress for the main role in his celluloid. This will be the second movie in which Katrina will be seen with SRK on the big screens.

This selection of heroine for his film is not yet announced officially, but the makers are striving hard to finalize the complete team for their new film. Kat has signed another film ‘Raat Baaki’, under the banners of Dharma Productions, in which she will be seen opposite Fawad Khan. After the average success of her latest film with Siddhartha Malhotra, the lady is gearing up for ensuring her upcoming movies to be in the list of top films of this year.
