Katrina Kaif signs a film for free

Katrina Kaif may have secured her position as one of the leading ladies in Bollywood, but she also has a philanthropic side. The actor recently signed her make-up artist Subhash Singh’s production venture as the female lead. And to top it all, she will not be charging him for it. - the news, he says, “Yes, she has signed my film and she is supporting me, by not charging a single penny for it.” Subhash recently launched his company Hari Om Sai Productions. He will produce this film, which is the Hindi adaptation of the 2007 movie P.S. I Love You starring Gerard Butler and Hilary Swank. “It is untitled as of now, but I have signed Aziz Mirza to direct it,” says Subhash, who is yet to find a male lead to star opposite Katrina. “I had approached John (Abraham) and Ranbir (Kapoor), but they didn’t agree. So, I am still looking.” Subhash plans on taking the film on the floors by the end of 2012. Meanwhile, Katrina has three big films to look forward to this year — Ek Tha Tiger with Salman Khan, Dhoom 3 with Aamir Khan and filmmaker Yash Chopra’s untitled film opposite Shah Rukh Khan. “She sat idle for three months as she had kept that time for me. But we couldn’t start without a male lead. Hopefully, we will start after she finishes the three big projects,” adds Subhash. Interestingly, this is not the first time Katrina is supporting her staff’s professional endeavours. In 2011, she did a cameo for her hairdresser, Ramila Manjrekar’s, production Main Krish Hoon. Unfortunately the film is yet to see the light of day.
