Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif
A source says, "Katrina is in talks to play the lead role. They have been discussing it for a while now, but latest developments suggest that she has given them a go-ahead. This is will be her second film with Shah Rukh Khan after 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'."
Another industry source adds, "Post 'Bang Bang', Katrina will be working on 'Jagga Jasoos' opposite Ranbir Kapoor, but it looks like this film will be pushed ahead. Besides these two films, she doesn't have too much on her plate as of now, so a lead role in Raees is just right for her."
When contacted, Katrina denied being offered the film. On the other hand, Rahul Dholakia, the film's director, remained unavailable for comment.
