Director Laxman Utekar has responded to a question about whether or not Katrina Kaif will appear in his upcoming film, Zara Hatke Zara Bachke. In a recent interview, the filmmaker explained why the actor and Vicky Kaushal, weren't cast in Zara Hatke Zara Bachke. According to Laxman, Katrina isn't cut out to be the "middle-class joint family daughter-in-law."
Zara Hatke Zara Bachke has Vicky and Sara Ali Khan in the lead roles. The film, co-produced by Jio Studios and Dinesh Vijan, will hit theatres on June 2. It's a romantic comedy set in Indore that chronicles the seemingly divorce-bound lives of middle-class married couple Kapil (Vicky) and Somya (Sara).
Laxman remarked that he can do it only if Katrina understands his language in an interview with Peeping Moon. He further queried how one would describe Katrina's appearance as a small-town heroine. Working with Vicky and Katrina would be a dream come true if they got a fantastic script.
Laxman wouldn't get them on board this time because Zara Hatke Zara Bachke is in another dimension, and he can sense Katrina's presence and unique character. For his part, he doesn't think she can pull off the look of a middle-class daughter-in-law in a nuclear family. They should go for it if something in the future works for them.
Earlier, ANI reported Laxman as stating that this movie is close to his heart. Audiences all throughout the country will identify with this story. The film is great for the whole family and will keep everyone entertained.
Katrina's most recent film appearance was in the horror comedy Phone Bhoot, in which she starred with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter. In the upcoming action movie Tiger 3, she will co-star with Salman Khan. The release date of the film has been fixed for Diwali 2023.
Aside from that, she co-stars with Vijay Sethupathi in Sriram Raghavan's Merry Christmas. She, along with Alia Bhatt and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, will soon be seen in Farhan Akhtar's Jee Le Zaraa.
