In a recent interview with Planet Bollywood, the actress stated, “Shanoo Sharma, the casting director at Yash Raj Films was looking for a new face for ‘Dhoom 3’ and Bhumi Pednekar, who was then assisting her, came to Delhi to audition girls for the same film. They were planning to cast a newcomer but eventually, they decided Katrina (Kaif) would be apt for the role. I did not get the film but Bhumi asked me to come to Mumbai and work there.”
