Has Yami Gautam beaten out Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor for a casting coup of sorts?

According to sources, a leading production house has pulled off a casting coup when it announced that the hunky and chunky actors Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff would feature in a film to be made by Bang Bang (2014) director, Siddharth Anand. The action-drama had yet to finalize a leading lady when the names of Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor Khan as the leading ladies were mentioned and discussed. Surprisingly, Kaif and Khan had a competitor in Yami Gautam, as she was apparently vying for a spot in the film.


Sources suggest that Roshan is keen to pair up with his Kaabil co-star, Gautam, again.


"The role requires the female actor to perform action sequences, and Yami has the lithe frame to pull them off convincingly. Hrithik and Yami shared a good working relationship during Kaabil, and it is speculated that he suggested her name for the film," the source says, quick to add that the makers have yet to arrive at a decision.


Tiger Shroff's next action thriller Baaghi 2 will have the young actor doing stuff he has not done before on screen.
