Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif are among Bollywood's leading actresses and the latest buzz suggests that the two might be seen together in an upcoming movie. Aanand L Rai's next movie features Shah Rukh Khan and it has been reported that Deepika and Katrina might play the two female leads in the film.

Shah Rukh will play the character of a dwarf in the movie, which will have two leading ladies. Deepika has been roped in as one of the female leads and Katrina is likely to be finalised as the second heroine of the movie, Filmfare reported.

The report added that along with Katrina, Kareena Kapoor Khan is also being considered for the role but the former has already agreed to be a part of the film. There has been a series of speculations regarding the female cast of Anand L Rai's next movie since he had announced the project.

Another report had said that Sonam Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were also approached to feature along with SRK in the film. However, the report said that Sonam might not come on board as she would not like to feature in a two-heroine film, considering the success of "Neerja." On the other side, Alia might also not be interested as she would already be seen sharing screen space with Shah Rukh in Gauri Shinde's upcoming movie.

"Sonam is in the best phase of her career and she might not want to do a two-heroine film right now. As for Alia, her film with SRK will hit screens soon. It's highly improbable for them to come together once again in such a short span," Daily News Analysis had quoted a source as saying. Nevertheless, there has not been any confirmation on the female cast of the film as of now.
