NOT Vijay Sethupathi, WHO Was 1st CHOICE For Katrina Kaif’s Merry Christmas Movie?

Katrina Kaif and South star Vijay Sethupathi are going to make a fresh pairing for Sriram Raghavan’s next thriller.

The Kat-Vijay movie has allegedly been titled ‘Merry Christmas’. It’s going to be shot across Mumbai, Pune, Goa reportedly.

Vijay Sethupathi has quite a few interesting Bollywood projects lined up – the Vikrant Massey starrer Mumbaikar (remake of Tamil thriller Maanagaram). He is also playing a prominent role in Shahid Kapoor’s OTT debut web series.

But did you know the makers of Merry Christmas had approached someone else before Sethupathi? If this Bollywood Hungama report is to be believed then Salman Khan was offered the Katrina Kaif starrer first.

Kat-Salman Khan

“This is the second time that Sriram offered a film to Salman. Back in 2015, right after Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sriram and Salman had met to discuss a potential collaboration on a thriller, but things didn’t work out. For Merry Christmas, they met again as Sriram felt that Salman fit the bill. However, Salman and his team felt that this was too small a film for a superstar like him and politely refused the offer,” a source told the portal.

The source further added that while Salman was a fan of Sriram’s work, he was apparently looking for something a bit more commercial.

“Sriram too wishes to work with Salman once, but he wants to do something that presents him in a different light. Sriram felt that the character in Merry Christmas, though not as larger than life as what Salman Khan was portrayed in his films, had an element of style to it, which justified the presence of Salman.”

Jee Le Zaraa: Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra and Kat

It is what it is though. If not Merry Christmas, Katrina Kaif is still reuniting with Salman Khan for Tiger 3. She also has Phone Bhoot and the road-trip movie Jee Le Zaraa with Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt.
