According to the buzz, cracks are appearing in yet another Bolly relationship. All"s not well between with the Salman-Katrina jodi. Fights between the couple are increasing. Most of their jhagdas are over Katrina"s career decisions.
Salman has many enemies in the industry, and he doesn"t want his girl to act with them. Until now, Kat played the obedient girlfriend but recently she signed a film with Shahid Kapoor. When Khan heard that she"d signed a film with Kapoor, he was furious. Sallu and Shahid have not been on talking terms since the Rockstar shows last year.
Sallu didn"t know!
Says a source, “Katrina signed Raj Santoshi"s untitled film with Shahid, despite knowing there were problems between Shahid and her beau, who is not in the mood to forgive or forget this over-stepping.
Sallu feels Kat owes her career to him, and even if she didn"t, as her boyfriend and a senior actor, he thinks she should discuss her projects with him. Of late, Kaif has started making her own decisions without consulting Salman.
Some time back, she was in Sydney shooting for Singh Is Kinng and it was only when Salman called her, that he learned she was shooting with Akshay Kumar for Vipul Shah"s film. He was shocked! He even didn"t know about her film with Ranbir Kapoor with Yash Raj, till he read about it in the papers."
Naturally, Salman doesn"t want Katrina to go ahead with the Shahid film. Says an insider, “He has made his displeasure clear. But Salman will never forbid Katrina to work with anyone.
He gives people space but he"s very hurt that she would choose to sign a film with a known enemy. Katrina should have respected his feelings. Even Salman"s friends and family don"t sign people Salman doesn"t like to work in their films."
After the whole thing blew out of proportion, Katrina is believed to have back-tracked from her commitment. When quizzed about it, Katrina who is currently shooting in Australia for Singh Is Kinng denies that she"s having second thoughts about the film, “That"s ridiculous! We are all waiting to work out dates with Shahid."
Time to change
However Director Raj Kumar Santoshi denies that Shahid"s dates are a problem, “Shahid is a very professional, helpful and cooperative boy. His dates have never been a problem.
"However he admits that the film will not go on to the floors for sometime now. “When I saw Jab We Met I realised that some part of it is similar to mine and was clashing with mine so I decided to change the script."
Originally, it was a love story, but now it can be anything a love story, a political satire or comedy. Shahid liked the original character tremendously.
