How costars are wreaking havoc in Katrina's career

July 02, 2014 17:11 IST

Katrina KaifIf the latest reports are an indication, Katrina Kaif has emerged as the reluctant queen bee of delayed projects.

She had only one release -- Dhoom 3 -- in 2013, which took nearly two years to be completed thanks to her costar Aamir Khan's various commitments, including Satyamev Jayate.

This year too has brought little respite to her since only one of her films will hit the marquee.

Bang Bang had been delayed because of leading man Hrithik Roshan's health and personal issues but the film's producers are now determined to get it released on October 2.

Now another project, Jagga Jasoos, is being delayed because of her costar Ranbir Kapoor's other commitments.

According to a source, "Jagga Jasoos is taking longer than expected. It was planned as a one-schedule fun film but the dates began to clash with Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet (starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma).

"Ranbir begins shooting for Imtiaz Ali's Tamasha in July. Since Jagga Jasoos is Ranbir's co-production, he's giving priority to other projects."

What exactly does that mean for Katrina Kaif's career? She has repeatedly been a victim of her costars' overcrowded schedules.

A concerned friend of the actress says, "Katrina won't be able to sign any new films until Bang Bang and Jagga Jasoos are completed. With Ranbir giving priority to Bombay Velvet and Tamasha, it is anybody's guess when that'll be."
