If it was Katrina Kaif as Govinda’s pair in “Partner” now it is time for Amrita Rao. Yes and the news is absolutely true. Amrita Rao will now be seen playing partner to Govinda in Rumi Jaffrey’s forthcoming film, “Life Partner”, which will be produced by the Abbas-Mustan.
The movie has two other couples- Fardeen Khan-Genelia D'Souza and Tushar Kapoor -Prachi Desai. Even though the team wanted to rope in Katrina Kaif in a cameo opposite Govinda, Sources say that the producer duo did not receive any confirmation from her side.
"She was approached and they waited for Kat for long who cited other commitments for her unavailability. As she had worked with Abbas-Mustan in Race, the duo wanted her to be a part of their production debut as well. But there was no reply from her and with the film's release date set in August, they could not wait any longer”, said a source.
As a result, Amrita Rao was approached for the role. Over the weekend, she shot for it at Filmistan Studios.
Rumi Jaffrey has confirmed the news and says "Yes, Katrina did figure in our plans. But now that she is in London, we could not hold on for her any longer. If we had to wait for Katrina, it would involve postponing the release. This would mean that Life Partner would be pushed back considerably and perhaps not even be out in 2009."
He adds, "The multiplex strike delayed everything and now that the release dates of the films have been fixed, we did not want to postpone Life Partner any further."
Amrita Rao bagged the cameo in the movie just because of the makeover she had for Neeraj Vora's “Short Kut The Con Is On”.
