It is reported that Salman Khan wanted to rope in either his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif or a completely new female lead for Sher Khan. Since he will be working with Katrina for the next six months for Ek Tha Tiger, he reportedly thought that it would be more practical to have new face Angela Jonsson for his next film.
However, Angela Jonsson will play an athletic character in the movie Sher Khan. Sources claim that the model will have to undergo rigorous training in martial arts and action skills to get into her role. Director Sohail Khan, who is currently finalising locations to shoot the film, has reportedly roped in special international trainers to get the debutante actress ready for her role.
