There were rumours that Katrina Kaif wasn't too interested in Farah Khan and her hubby Shirish Kunder's Tees Maar Khan either and Sonam was approached for that role too. Farah however could not convince Sonam for the role and Katrina was finalised for the movie. Incidentally even Tees Maar Khan has Akshay Kumar playing the lead. Sonam has impressed many with Bollywood with her performance in the movie Delhi 6.
Sonam Kapoor is all set to say 'Thank You' to Anees Bazmee after her offered her a role in his next movie opposite Akshay Kumar. Anees had earlier cast Katrina Kaif in the movie but she pulled out of it after an initial not. Anees then approached Sonam's father Anil Kapoor for her date and Sonam has been roped in. Anees has worked with Anil in No Entry and No Problem and says Anil and Sonam are like family to him.
