The choice of Tees Maar Khan, her first flop in a long time, shook Katrina Kaif up so badly that she just went underground, reports Bombay Times.
Katrina, the report says, sat on a pile of scripts, but kept her producers dangling. She ultimately went on to refuse Rohit Shetty's Singham, Vipul Shah's next with Abhishek Bachchan, Kunal Kohli's offer with Saif Ali Khan and a couple of other projects.
Meanwhile, says the report, Kareena quietly continued her march. She quickly grabbed projects with the Khans - Aamir (Reema Kagti's film),Salman (Bodyguard), Shah Rukh (RA.One), Saif (Agent Vinod) and Imran (Short Term Shaadi).
For a while,it seemed like Katrina had lost direction. She seemed to be more involved in her love life (Ranbir Kapoor) than her career.However, once the RK Junior chapter ended abruptly, Katrina was back like a wounded tigress baying for blood.
She made sure she landed Kabir Khan's Ek Tha Tiger with her ex-lover Salman and in November, she is the chosen one for Yash Chopra's next with Shah Rukh.
She is not in Dhoom-3 with Aamir, but there is a hint that she may land another Aamir project in the end of 2012.
In other words, Katrina's wait has proved fruitful. Incidentally, says the report, there are naysayers who feel that SRK is hesitant to do a Yash Chopra film because that camp has now tied up with his rivals Aamir and Salman.
However, the fact is, the Badshah of Bollywood has allotted a month in November for the Katrina film from that very camp. He then takes a break to promote Don-2. After the Christmas and New Year celebrations, he will continue to serenade Katrina on screen.So, Kareena should better watch out.
