Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film, ‘Blue’ has been the talk of the town lately; with international pop star Kylie Minogue descending upon Mumbai to film an item song as well as a few scenes. With all the frenzy it might be easy to forget that there are other Bollywood stars in the film, including Katrina Kaif. Now when you mention Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the same film, one automatically expects Katrina to have a full-fledged role in the film, remember ‘Namaste London,’ ‘Humko Deewana Kar Gaye,’ ‘Welcome’ and ‘Singh Is Kinng’? Well if that’s what you expect from ‘Blue’ then you’ll be in for a surprise! In actuality, the film’s leading heroine is Lara Dutta and Katrina is just doing an item song and a few scenes in the film. While rumors have been swirling that her role in the movie has been extended to cash in on her star value, Katrina herself confirmed that her she has a very small role in the film. Too bad for all of Kat’s legions of fans! She’s already shot her scenes in Bangkok and will be shooting her item song in Mumbai soon. It’s rumored that while she’s paired opposite Akshay in the film (uhh… duh!) she gets killed off after a few scenes. While you’d think Katrina wouldn’t be happy with that, the actress has actually known the size of her role since the beginning. Hmm… maybe Akshay had a helping hand in getting her aboard! But Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif fans shouldn’t feel too down in the dumps, because the duo will be seen in full-fledged roles starring opposite each other in the upcoming film, ‘De Dhana Dhan,’ very soon! So what do you think of Katrina’s small role in ‘Blue’? Do you think she should have a bigger role? Drop us a comment with your thoughts!
