MUMBAI — Actress Katrina Kaif had to turn down an untitled film, set to be co-produced by Salman Khan’s production house, due to date issues.     

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez have now been signed for the Taran Mansukhani film, which will be produced by Dharma Productions and Salman Khan Films.     

It was, however, Kaif who was initially approached for the role.     

“Katrina was approached for the film, since she was a perfect fit for the role and shares a great equation with Salman Khan Films and Dharma Productions. She had to turn it down, as she has signed another movie, dates of which were clashing with this project,” sources close to the development said in a statement here.     

“It was then that the makers approached Jacqueline, as Katrina has committed her timelines to another film,” the sources added.     

Kaif will be seen next in “Baar Baar Dekho” opposite Sidharth Malhotra.
