Katrina Kaif recently made news when she walked out of Remo D’Souza’s upcoming dance movie, also starring Varun Dhawan.

The movie was announced last year with a never before seen jodi of Varun and Katrina. Earlier it was rumored to be the third movie in the ‘Anybody Can Dance’ franchise but later the makers clarified that this would be a brand new movie all together. The shooting of the movie was about to start this year.

But now with Katrina Kaif walking out of the movie, the makers are again in search for a new lead. According to sources, the front-runners for the female lead are Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan.

As per a source who quoted to DNA, “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”.

Shraddha Kapoor already has ‘Saaho’ and ‘Chhichhore’ releasing in 2019. Sara Ali Khan on the other hand, recently delivered a blockbuster with ‘Simmba’ that also stars Ranveer Singh.

Official word regarding the same is awaited.
