Two leading ladies of Bollywood Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone are once again pitted against each other! However, Ranbir Kapoor is not the issue this time. They are fighting for the female lead role in Akshay Kumar"s Joker.
Joker is an upcoming movie to be made jointly by Akshay"s Hari Om Productions and Farah Khan and Shirish"s Three"s Company. There is buzz that two leading actresses are in the run to act opposite Akshay in this movie.
A source said that both Katrina and Deepika think that they would act in Joker. During the shooting of Farah Khan"s Tees Maar Khan, Katrina had a talk with Akshay regarding this and has taken it for granted that she would be acting in it.
The source added that the inclusion Deepika as the leading lady has left Akshay in a dilemma. He is now trying to find out the best way to inform one of the actresses to walk out. This has become tough, because of his close association with both the ladies and does not like to hurt their feelings.
The co-producer of the film Shirish opted to stay out of any controversy by saying that they are still hunting for the female lead opposite Akshay and have not finalized anyone yet. He added that they are considering the top actresses, as it is a performance-oriented role and would make a final decision jointly with Akshay in a week.
