Shirish, who also writes the film, has confirmed that Katrina will be playing a wannabe item girl in the film, adding that they deliberated a lot before casting her as the main lead.
This is the first time in her career that Katrina will be enacting the character of an item girl. She has played many different roles before, right from the girl-next-door in Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani, to the rich girl in De Dhana Dhan and even a married woman in New York.
When asked whether Katrina's British accent would help her as she plays an NRI from Southall who wishes to make it big in Bollywood, Shirish says that there isn't any Southall connection to Katrina's character in the film. Instead, they were looking for somebody like her and she fits the role perfectly.
