Earlier this week, we told you that owing to the busy schedule of Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, Katrina Kaif has had to opt out of Remo D’Souza’s ABCD3, which stars Varun Dhawan in the lead. Prior to this, Kaif had expressed a lot of excitement to be a part of a full fledged dance film, but the professional that she is, the Zero actress politely walked out of the film, leaving all of us in speculation as to who will replace her.
The first name that came to the minds of the makers was Shraddha Kapoor, because Kapoor was the leading lady in ABCD2, opposite Varun Dhawan, and they had looked good together while Kapoor showed off her dancing skills. But, she’s not the only contender. While Kriti Sanon was also one of the top contenders for the role, it turns out that the makers have zeroed it on Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan.
A source reveals, “With Shraddha on board, it would be a reunion of the ABCD 2 trio, along with Varun and Remo. They have an equation and that would help in their collaborating on another dance flick. The other strong contender for the role is Sara Ali Khan. She has proved her acting chops in Kedarnath and has been appreciated in Simmba too. Signing her would also mean a fresh new onscreen pair. And Varun and Sara together are bound to generate tremendous buzz for this dance movie. So yes, the makers are definitely looking at the advantage of casting Sara for the film.”
