New Delhi — Actress Katrina Kaif has denied that she will be teaming up with “New York” co-star John Abraham again in the upcoming sequel of hit 2011 film “Force.”
Kaif, 31, was reportedly being eyed by producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah for the female lead in the action film, which will be directed by Abhinay Deo.
The original featured actress Genelia Deshmukh as the female protagonist.
“Reports about me doing the film opposite John are not true. There is nothing like ‘Force 2’ happening. The next film I would be working on is Anurag Basu’s film ‘Jagga Jasoos,’” said Kaif.
The “Dhoom:3” star said she has her hands full with three back-to-back films — “Fitoor,” “Jagga Jasoos” and a Karan Johar production directed by Nitya Mehra.
“After ‘Jagga Jasoos,’ I will be doing Nitya’s film which is being produced by Excel Entertainment and Karan Johar. We should be wrapping up the principal shoot of ‘Jagga Jasoos’ by this August,” said Kaif.
The “Bang Bang!” actress stars opposite Aditya Roy Kapoor in Abhishek Kapoor’s “Fitoor.”
“‘Fitoor’ is shaping up well. We will be wrapping up the shoot in about three weeks. It has been pretty much a start-to-finish job because I have colored my hair red for the film, so the continuity was needed. It is nice to shoot a film in succession. I am hoping we wrap it on time and get a good release date,” said Kaif.
The romantic drama is based on Charles Dickens’ novel “Great Expectations” and also stars veteran actress Rekha.
Kaif is happy to be a part of the movie as she finds her character interesting and feels she can portray it with conviction.
“I relate to a lot of things about my character. She is in denial of many things. She does not really know herself. She is also trained to think a certain way.
“Sometimes it happens you start living a certain way without even knowing if it is the right thing. It is a very interesting character, and Abhishek has a very different take on it. I think I can understand this person and convey her across,” the actress said.
