Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif will reportedly be seen opposite Shah Rukh Khan again, after "Jab Tak Hai Jaan."

Post the Yash Chopra film, Kaif is set to reunite as Khan's heroine in the upcoming film "Raees."
"Katrina is in talks to play the lead role. They have been discussing it for a while now, but latest developments suggest that she has given them a go-ahead," a source told Mid Day.
However, Kaif being signed for the Rahul Dholakia film cannot be immediately confirmed, but the actress is said to have denied the report of being cast, reported the tabloid.
Also the actress's presence in "Raees" is in stark contrast to the previous news which had carried Sonam Kapoor as the film's lead actress. Kapoor's signing was also confirmed by the film's production house Excel Entertainments on the occasion.
Signed or not we don't know yet, but if Kaif is roped, the actress will have four projects at hand, "Bang Bang", "Jagga Jasoos," "Phantom" and "Raees."
Meanwhile, "Raees" has already been making news with its significant developments. Recently, Farhan Akhtar who was to play a cop in the film walked out of the project owing to date clashes and was replaced by the talented Nawazuddin Siddqui.
The film which will have the superstar Khan playing a bootlegger has undergone severe change in its schedule, owing to the actor's injury in "Happy New Year" sets resulting in Akhtar's exit from the scene.
