Soon after news broke out that Priyanka Chopra has been signed on to the play a key role in Anurag Basu’s Khamoshi, Katrina Kaif, who was earlier supposed to be a part of the film, has opted out.
Sources say, Katrina wasn’t informed before hand that another A-list female star would be required to portray an important role. And since Priyanka’s role turned out to be meatier of the two, Katrina was no longer interested in playing second fiddle.
Asin Thottumkal of Ghajini fame has been signed on to play Katrina’s role. Khamoshi, also stars Ranbir Kapoor and will be Anurag Basu’s next after Hrithik Roshan’s Kites that releases on May 21st 2010.
