Katrina Kaif is a favourite with every filmmaker and so was the case for upcoming film ‘Half Girlfriend’. Before finalising Shraddha Kapoor as the lead actress, it was Ranbir Kapoor’s ex-flame who was the first choice in Mohit Suri’s upcoming film. The makers of the film were keen to cast the actress opposite the young and dashing Arjun Kapoor. But sadly, Kat turned down the offer and the reason might leave you stunned. One can understand if the offer was rejected due to some date issues but here is the reasoning very different.

The stunning actress of B-town apparently turned down ‘Half Girlfriend’ (adapted from Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller) due to her ‘age’. As per a report in DNA a source revealed to the daily, “Katrina liked the script, but suggested he cast another actress because she might look older than Arjun, who also happens to be her close friend. This happened especially after her pairing with Aditya Roy Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra.” When Ms. Kaif was paired opposite Adi in ‘Fitoor’ and Sid in ‘Baar Baar Dekho’, fans felt that their chemistry was not that really convincing and since then the actress has been focused with whom she is paired in the film.

Arjun Kapoor and Katrina Kaif are said to be good friends and despite of that the latter did not think it would be right in the future to share screen space with an actor who is younger to her. But we think she could have at least given a try. What if it would have worked? Meanwhile, Mohit Suri who was highly impressed with Kat’s honesty promised to get back to her with her a good script for his next film. It was after all this Shakti Kapoor’s daughter was roped in opposite Arjun Kapoor for ‘Half Girlfriend’. (ALSO READ: WHAT! Exes Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif are back together?)

Meanwhile, Katrina Kaif will soon be seen in Anurag Basu’s upcoming film ‘Jagga Jasoos’ in which she is paired opposite her former beau Ranbir Kapoor. After all the troubles during the shoot, the film is all set to hit the silver screens on April 17 next year.
