Farah was against casting Katrina in TMK

Katrina Kaif

is still remembered for her iconic dance number ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ from ‘

Tees Maar Khan

‘. While the film unfortunately failed at the box office, the song is still remembered and how! But it is only now that Farah has revealed that she did not want to cast Katrina in the film. She was against it and here’s the reason for it.
The choreographer-director said during a chat with Mashable India that she usually remains away from what could be the ‘obvious choice’.

For instance, many top actresses wanted to get cast opposite SRK in ‘Om Shanti Om’, but Farah opted to launch a new actress,

Deepika Padukone

in the film. She further spoke about casting Katrina in ‘Tees Maar Khan’. “Main obvious choice se rehti hun thoda door. I think the only time I made an obvious choice was jab Maine Tees Maar Khan mein Katrina Kaif ko liya. It was obvious because wo

Akshay Kumar

ke saath 6-7 movies kar chuki thi and I was very against ki mujhe usko nahi lena hai. But wo ghoom ghaam ke wohi aayi picture mein, (I don’t make obvious choices. Because Katrina had done 6-7 movies with Akshay, I was absolutely against casting her in my film. But eventually, she only ended up being in the film).”
Katrina and Akshay have been a very hit on-screen pair as they did films like ‘Singh Is King’, ‘Namaste London’, ‘Welcome’ among others together.
Katrina was last seen in ‘Merry Christmas’ along side Vijay Sethupathi, directed by

Sriram Raghavan
