With four hits in a row and a rousing performance in his latest release Shanghai, Emraan Hashmi is on a high.
The actor is not only being courted by several A-list filmmakers to act in their films, according to latest reports, he may be on his way to star opposite Katrina Kaif in a new film.
According to sources, Emraan has been chosen to play the lead in Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor's first joint production.
"The coming together of Karan's Dharma Productions and Ekta's Balaji Telefilms is monumental and the cast has to reflect the importance of the union. The film, to be directed by newcomer Akhshoy Roy, is an edgy love story and an unconventional actor was required for the lead role.
"Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan were the first choices but Emraan was eventually selected," the source says.
While both Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have been approached to play Emraan's love interest, Katrina's having trouble giving dates away from her busy schedule. Says the source, "Both Karan and Ekta feel that the Emraan-Katrina pair would be magical."
It's only a matter of time before we know who gets to act with Emraan first -- Katrina or Kareena.
