The hunt for a girl who can play a young Katrina Kaif in 'Fitoor' has reached international shores

The search for a younger version of Katrina Kaif in Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor is still on. If sources close to the project are to be believed, the film’s makers are facing a tough time finding a girl who can convincingly play a young Katrina Kaif.

The casting director of the film was on the lookout for a boy and a girl aged between 11-13 years. While they have finalised a boy who will play the role of a young Aditya Roy Kapur, they are apparently still looking for a girl with Scandinavian features and have had no luck so far. As a result, buzz has it that auditions for the parts are now being conducted worldwide; the casting director is said to have sent across Katrina Kaif’s photograph for the same.

However, casting director Mukesh Chhabra says that it’s too early to say anything. “Who told you that I have already found a boy to play a young Aditya Roy Kapur? We are still looking. In fact, we have just started casting for the film, so it will take us sometime. But yes, for a younger version of Katrina, we are conducting auditions worldwide,” he says.

Fitoor is a passionate love saga that will be shot across many locations in North India — including Kashmir and Delhi — and an international destination. The movie depicts the relationship between three characters: a young Kashmiri boy, Noor (played by Aditya), his muse, Firdaus (played by Katrina), and the Begum (essayed by Rekha).
