The actress has been finalised for Siddharth Anand’s Hindi remake of the Hollywood film Knight And Day A week back, TOI told you how Hrithik Roshanin keeping with his current streak of action films, has signed Siddharth Anand’s next project. The film, an official desi remake of the Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz starrer Knight And Day, required its hero to have a lean and mean acrobatic image. And Hrithik, who had recently got into superhero shape, fit the bill perfectly. However, the hunt for his perfect partner in this spy-on-the-run romantic thriller was still on. And now, we learnt that Anand has found his leading lady. Katrina Kaif, who was last seen on the big screen fighting goons alongside Salman Khan in Ek Tha Tiger, has been roped in to play Diaz’s Indian counterpart. The film, yet untitled, goes on floors early next year. It is produced by Fox Star India. Infact, when contacted, the CEO of Fox Star Studio Vijay Singh confirmed that Katrina has been roped in for the venture. “The Hrithik-Katrina pairing in Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was well received by the audience. Besides, both of them are very popular with the youth,” said Singh. Declaring that the film will go on floors in February, Singh added, “It will be shot in India and also in the Middle East and Europe.” According to a source close to the project, unlike the generic action thriller, this one will have the leading lady sharing equal footagewiththehero. “Katrina’s role is as lengthy as Hrithik’s. She will have to do a lot of action in the film as well. Both of them will have to undergo rigorous training before the shooting begins,” said the source.
