Zoya Akhtar has revealed that she had not originally planned to cast Katrina Kaif in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

The filmmaker told Hindustan Times that she was originally planning to use an unknown face for the role Kaif is playing.

"I didn't write the film with Katrina in mind. I actually wanted to cast someone new for that character," Zoya stated.

The Luck By Chance director said that a combination of not finding the right talent and meeting Kaif at an event in Mumbai led to the eventual casting.

Zoya detailed: "I just couldn't find any good actors. And around the same time, I happened to meet Katrina at a party. I really liked her vibe and felt she would fit the role."

The filmmaker contrasted the casting of Kaif with the film's other heroine Kalki.

"I couldn't see anyone else play that part," Zoya said after watching the French descent star in That Girl In The Yellow Boots.

The film, originally titled Running With The Bulls, releases July 15.
