She’s ready for Katrina Kaif to come next. She will be starring alongside Vijay Sethupathi in the film “Merry Christmas” for the first time. Additionally, it will be her first project with filmmaker Sriram Raghavan, who has previously directed movies like “Andhadhun” and “Badlapur.” The actor has now discussed her collaboration with Raghavan.
Working with Sriram Raghavan: Katrina Kaif
Speaking about her collaboration with Sriram Raghvan, Katrna Kaif stated, “It was a dream come true for me to work with Sriram Raghvan, sir.” Being on his set is like stepping into another universe; he’s a fantastic director with an amazing imagination, and I feel really privileged to have had that experience. She continued,” As a person and a filmmaker, he is an incredible collaborator.” Doing the film in two languages was an exceptionally challenging experience. Since the beginning, we have all been incredibly passionate about creating this movie, and we can’t wait for it to be released.
Concerning “Merry Christmas”
“Merry Christmas,” a thriller directed by Sriram Raghvan, is the story of two strangers who meet and fall in love at Christmas. It was concurrently filmed in Tamil and Hindi. While the Tamil version features legends like Radhika Sarathkumar, Shanmugaraja, Kavin Jay Babu, and Rajesh Williams, the Hindi version starts with Sanjay Kapoor, Vinay Pathak, Pratima Kannan, and Tinnu Anand. In both versions, Ashwini Kalsekar and Radhika Apte make special cameo appearances. “Merry Christms,” which was directed by Sriram Raghavan and produced by Ramesh Taurani, Sanjay Routray, Jaya Taurani, and Kewal Garg, marks Tips Films and Matchbox Pictures’s first joint venture. The release date is set for January 12.
As Raghvan disclosed, I had met Katrina informally after Andhadun, and we had been talking about doing something. And as I started to tell this narrative, I thought, “Okay.” She will look amazing in this. Who is that guy? I then went through our entire set, and as is customary, I was attempting to draw comparisons. Katrina Kaif and the other star in question have either taken action or not. And because the plot requires a certain kind of combination, that’s what I wanted. It is not appropriate to assume anything about either of them, such as “What are those two people about?”
After Katrina Kaif persuaded Raghvan to disclose the identity of the actor who desired to feature in Merry Christmas, the director said, Thus, Saif Ali Khan and I met. He was a little disappointed when I declined. However, I hadn’t cast Vijay Sethupathi at this time. I just stated, “I want something new.” I am not sure what I am searching for. Speaking further about the new duo of Katrina and Vijay that the filmmaker brought up in the same interview, I felt that this was really intriguing and that people would be fascinated by this strange pairing. I was also curious. With any typical combination, I could kind of picture a certain film. Here, I was ignorant of it. Thus, there was enthusiasm.
