"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. This is will be her second film with Shah Rukh Khan after 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan',” as source said.

"Post 'Bang Bang', Katrina will be working on 'Jagga Jasoos' opposite Ranbir Kapoor but it looks like this film will be pushed ahead. Besides these two films, she does not have too much on her plate as of now, so a lead role in

‘Raees’ is just right for her," another source added. When contacted, Katrina denied being offered the film.

On the other hand, Rahul Dholakia, the film's director, remained unavailable for comment.
