Everyone knows that in Bollywood, it is the heroes who call the shots. The leading ladies are just incidental to the plot.
So when one of B-Town’s most powerful production houses signs an actress for three big projects, it is definitely time for the competition to sit up and take notice. Not only is Katrina Kaif doing three films for Aditya Chopra’s home production, she has been paired opposite the top three Khans.
While Kareena Kapoor has already worked with Salman, Aamir and Shah Rukh, they were all projects with different production houses. Clearly, Chopra’s production house has never put so much faith in one actress.
In fact, they’ve rarely repeated their leading ladies (barring Rani Mukerji), and often work with the No 1 actress of the time before moving on to the next big star. Rekha acted in Silsila (1981), Juhi in Darr (1993), and Madhuri Dixit in Dil Toh Pagal Hai.
