Reportedly, it was Akshay who recommended Katrina's name for the film, since the couple make a superhit jodi on-screen. For years now, Akshay and Katrina have carved a niche for themselves onscreen. They have acted in six films and every film has scored well at the box office.
A source informed a leading daily that Murugadoss isn't much happy with Akki's recommendation. Well, if things fall in place, with Akshay and Kats getting paired up once again then we expect a major Akki hit in the future.
