Filmmaker Aditya Chopra is not so happy with his one time favourite actress Katrina Kaif if reports are to be believed.

The leggy actress was seen playing female lead in five YRF movies which included blockbusters like "Ek Tha Tiger" and "Jab Tak Hai Jaan". She was also seen in "New York" and "Mere Brother Ki Dulhan". Her upcoming release of the year "Dhoom 3" is also produced by Yash Raj Films.

However, it is rumoured Aditya wanted to rope her in for his next project, "Gunday" starring Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor in male lead but Katrina reportedly turned down the project citing dates issues. This was followed by rumours that Katrina even asked Aditya to rope in a big superstar for the movie if she should take up the movie.

Adtiya was reportedly taken aback by Katrina's denial and immediately offered the role to Priyanka Chopra, who gave her nod.

"Adi made so many allowances for her. When she told him that she was uncomfortable doing the bikini scene in Dhoom 3, Adi made allowances for his blue-eyed girl. She is the only actress to have acted in five films of YRF. So he was confident of her nod for Gunday. Also, because it was to be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan) with whom she shares a wonderful working relation and Arjun is her rakhi brother," a source told DNA.

"That was the turning point. He couldn't believe that she would lay down conditions in front of him. He coldly told Kat he didn't need her in the film and went ahead and signed her arch rival. After that he has cooled off Kat," added the source.

Neither Aditya nor Katrina have made any comments on the reports but a close source to the British beauty said that the reports of fallout between the duo were baseless rumours. "In fact Adi is planning to do another film with Kat soon so all these rumours are not true."
