Katrina Kaif, who recently unveiled her wax statue at the Madame Tussauds in London, is all set to return with ‘Raajneeti 2’, but it will not star Katrina’s love interest in the first movie and in real – Ranbir Kapoor.
In an earlier interview also, director Prakash Jha has confirmed Katrina’s presence in the sequel of the 2010 movie, but he was unsure of Ranbir’s role. (Read: ‘Raajneeti 2′ will start with Katrina Kaif, says Prakash Jha) So the non-inclusion of the heartthrob doesn’t come as a surprise.
Reports say that Ranbir Kapoor, whose character Samar Pratap Singh, leaves India after a messy succession battle which ends with the death of his partner, will stay away from politics. The climax of ‘Raajneeti’ revealed that Indu, a reluctant entrant into politics that time, was pregnant with her deceased husband Prithviraj Pratap Singh’s (Arjun Rampal) child. Part 2 will be her journey.”
While ‘Raajneeti’ borrowed its plot from Sonia Gandhi’s entry to politics, the sequel will look at the recent power shift in the country, beginning with Indu embracing the position of the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh.
