Katrina Kaif Is Drop By Drop Pairing With Younger And Younger Co-Stars

Salena Harshini |Jan 06, 2020

It seems that Katrina Kaif is reversing the trend of female actors pairing with much older co-stars on the silver screens.

It seems that Katrina Kaif has had a hard time with her mid-career crisis. The actress began her filmy career with Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar and later then, she quickly curtailed her co-actors’ age with Siddharth Malhotra, Ranbir Kapoor, even Aditya Roy Kapoor. Now, her co-star’s line seems to be going down to the younger generation.

In a project of Excel Entertainment, Katrina Kaif will be sharing the same frame with actor Ishaan Khatter and Siddhanth Chaturvedi. While the former male actor debuted in the industry two years ago alongside Janhvi Kapoor in Dhadak, the latter gained fame after playing as MC Sher in Gully Boy. Both of the two actors are Kat’s junior by ten years at least.

With their age gap, unless Katrina is depicting an older woman, she will have to try hard in order to look compatible in terms of look with her junior actors. In fact, she is among the few starlets who have carried out a harmonizing act with their characters. She has collaborated with older actors such as Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan and simultaneously with younger ones like Sidharth Malhotra in Baar Baar Dekho.

As a matter of fact, it is not anything unusual for an established actress to act opposite younger co-actors. For instance, Nanda and Sinha worked respectively with Shashi Kapoor and Sanjay Khan. Waheeda Rehman also shook a leg with Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna both of whom are her juniors. More lately, Kareena Kapoor had worked with Imran Khan in two movies.

So, why not? Now is the time when male actors are often mentioned for acting alongside actresses who are young enough to be counted as their daughters. Namely, Salman Khan starred along with Saiee Manjrekar in Dabangg 3 and similarly, actor Akshay Kumar can be seen usually acting with young starlets such as Kriti Sanon and Parineeti Chopra.

Moreover, Shah Rukh Khan even has left his coevals Juhi Chawla and Preity Zinta behind and he is seen alongside actresses Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.

If Katrina Kaif reverses the trend, it means more power to actress, then!
