Katrina misses chance to work with Fardeen in ALL THE BEST

KATRINA KAIF and FARDEEN KHAN
If director Rohit Shetty (of GOLMAAL RETURNS) had his way, Katrina Kaif would have been his leading lady for ALL THE BEST. An Ajay Devgan production, it already boasted of an enviable cast comprising of Ajay Devgan, Bipasha Basu and Sanjay Dutt. For Fardeen Khan, another male lead in the film, it's a sort of comeback and Katrina Kaif being roped into the film would have only added to the star quotient.
Confirms a source on condition of anonymity, ''Makers of the film were convinced that Katrina Kaif was just right for the role of this glamorous 20 something young woman. Since Rohit's films are always high on glamour quotient, Katrina would have been a welcome addition to the multi starrer.''
Narrating an interesting anecdote, he adds, ''Also, it would have been a casting coup since Katrina has never worked with Fardeen before. However, she has shared screen space with his dad Feroz Khan in WELCOME. It seemed that she was set to play a role in the film.''
However, this wasn't the case to be as Katrina couldn't be a part of the film that resulted in an overnight search for another actress. This is where Mugdha Godse came into picture and the young glamorous woman was more than happy to grab the role in a multistarrer like ALL THE BEST which looks like a winner from the word Go.
''No one knows'', promptly says the source, ''Entire cast of the film that comprises of Ajay Devgan, Bipasha Basu, Sanjay Dutt and Fardeen Khan was announced but the slot was kept wide open for a leading lady. Suddenly, Katrina Kaif's date issues came up and it was decided that Mugdha Godse would be the part of this action comedy.''
Of course Katrina's loss is Mugdha's gain. With this film, she finds herself consolidating further in the big league with first FASHION and then JAIL where she is paired opposite Neil Nitin Mukesh and is being directed by Madhur Bhandarkar again.
Excited about working in this Ajay Devgan home production that should see its shooting kick starting in Goa this March, she adds, ''I am happy to be paired opposite Fardeen Khan and I love that man's style. It's a full on commercial film and has come at just the right time. I can't wait for the shoot to begin.''
