Katrina Kaif was rumoured to star in Veera Di Shaadi and according to DNA reports Salman recommended Katrina's name. "It was Salman who recommended Katrina for the film. He shares an excellent relation with Anil Kapoor, as they've been colleagues for decades. Also, during Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Sonam and he became friends. So when Salman suggested that Sonam and Rhea have a talk with Katrina for the film, and they did." When Katrina and Ranbir broke up since then Salman has been helping Katrina to focus on her career, source added, "He has got Katrina on board for the film with Rajkumar Santoshi as well. It was he who recommended her name there as well."
Katrina was not confirmed for the movie because the makers felt she wasn't getting the Delhi accent right and wanted to dub her voice. She wasn't comfortable with that, and then they parted ways
