Seems like Priyanka Chopra Jonas's losses are turning out to be quite a gain for Katrina Kaif! First; Katrina bagged Ali Abbas Zaffar's Bharat, featuring Salman Khan after PeeCee opted out of the film last minute due to her wedding with singer-actor, Nick Jonas, and now looks like Priyanka's loss is going to give Katrina Kaif the first biopic of her career!


A certain report by Mid-day suggests that; Katrina Kaif has been roped in for a full fledged biopic on Indian's most celebrated athlete, PT Usha. While there had been rumors of a biopic being made on Usha even back in 2017 with Priyanka Chopra, but the actor could not take up the film then owing to her other professional commitments!


And now; director Revathy S Varmha has decided to revive the film with Katrina Kaif in the lead! Mid-Day has quoted a source saying," Revathy has had a few sittings with Katrina over the past few months. The duo met few days ago in Mumbai for another narration. While the actor seems to be interested in the project, she will take a call only after the final narration. If Katrina gives her nod, it will mark her first biopic."


The source further stated," She will have to undergo rigorous prep for the part, including adopting PT Usha's sprinting style. Since the athlete is on board, she is likely to supervise the actor. For now though, Katrina has only signed Sooryavanshi after Bharat."


The film is being planned as a multi lingual film; which will chart the on track exploits of PT Usha or more fondly known as Payyoli Express due her unbelievable speed! It is also being speculated that music mastero A.R Rahman will be giving music to the film!


Well; undoubtedly if Katrina gives her nod for the film, it will be her transition from a main stream Bollywood actress to proving herself as a true actor, which we all know she has within her!
