A lot has been speculated about the leading lady opposite Salman Khan in Kabir Khan's next. From Deepika Padukone to Anushka Sharma, names of several actress surfaced online for the leading lady role.

But it looks like Salman will share screen-space with his ex-girlfriend in Kabir's next. Buzz is that Katrina Kaif will be paired opposite Salman in Kabir's next directorial film, which is reportedly titled as "Tubelight."

Earlier, reports of Deepika being finalised for the leading lady role were doing the rounds. The reports were later denied by the director Kabir. "I have never spoken to Deepika about the film. The earlier news that Deepika would be a part of the film was a rumour, but still spread like fire. So, naturally, the news that she isn't doing the film does not surprise me, because I didn't even discuss it with her," ANI quoted him as saying.

However, the latest report suggests that Kabir is in advance talks with Katrina. It is almost certain that she will give her nod and agree to come on board for the film, reported. If reports are true and if the actress gives her nod, then it will be the fourth film of Salman-Katrina together.

Salman and Katrina shared screen-space in "Maine Pyaar Kyu Kiya" and "Yuvraaj." In 2012, Salman and Katrina reunited again for Kabir's "Ek Tha Tiger." And looks like Eid 2017 will be a treat for fans with "Ek Tha Tiger" team reuniting.
