Katrina replaces Kangana in Anand L Rai's next starring Shah Rukh Khan
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is reportedly being replaced by Katrina Kaif in the next project of Anand L Rai starring superstar Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role. Well, it would have been really great to see Shah Rukh and Kangana sharing screen space together, but it is her bossy 'perfectionist' attitude that led Kangana to lose a big film with Shah Rukh Khan, as per a report in

The news came to light in a recent column by Rajeev Masand. The piece reveals how initially Aanand had been excited to cast Kangana opposite Shah Rukh in his next. However, remembering the hard time Kangana had given him while shooting 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns', the director is now considering to rope in Katrina for the role.

"Kangana is invested in a film beyond her own responsibility. She likes to collaborate on the script, costume and other departments. And Aanand had become uncomfortable with that even in Tanu Weds Manu Returns. He appreciates that she wants to be involved every step of the way, but he doesn't want to risk casting two headstrong personalities like Shah Rukh Khan and Kangana in the same film," reveals an insider.

Buzz is that Katrina will probably be signed for the role in the next few days. If that happens, this will become Katrina's second film with Shah Rukh after Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

While speaking about Shah Rukh's role in the film, Rai said, "Yes, it's a dwarf film. But dwarf is not the character. I am making a film where the size of the character is short. It's a very new character. It's a story about a man and woman again like Ranjhanaa or Tanu Weds Manu. It has different characters. In this case, my character is smaller in size. Let's not design it like a story of a dwarf. It's a story of a man who's size is small."

The film will release in December 2018.
