Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal married each other on December 9, 2021, in Rajasthan and are now enjoying marital bliss. The newlyweds, who recently celebrated their first Lohri in Indore, are yet to feature together in a film. However, did you know that they almost starred together in a movie that later went to Fawad Khan and eventually got shelved? Yes, you read that right!

According to a Mid-Day report, Vicky was Dhar's first choice for Raat Baaki Hai but the Raazi actor couldn't do the film due to date issues. Reportedly, Fawad Khan was later signed on to do the project.

In an interview, the actor had even confirmed that he was supposed to be a part of Raat Baaki Hai. He said, "[Director] Aditya [Dhar] was going to make a film called Raat Baaki Hai, with [Pakistani star] Fawad [Khan], and Katrina [Kaif], where I had a character that I couldn't do, because of date-issues. That film itself got shelved 20 days before the shoot, because of the attacks".

For the unversed, Raat Baaki Hai was supposed to be Dhar's directorial debut. The shooting for the romantic drama was set to begin in September 2016, however, the terrorist attacks took place in Uri post which the Indian government retaliated with the surgical strikes. Later, the Indian Motion Pictures Producers' Association (IMPPA) had banned Pakistani actors from working in India.

Due to this development, Raat Baaki Hai with Fawad got shelved and Dhar started his research about the Uri attacks. In 2019, he finally directed Uri: The Surgical Strike with Vicky Kaushal in the lead. It turned out to be the actor's biggest hit and he even got the National Award in the Best Actor category for his performance in the film, while Katrina is yet to team up with Vicky as well as Dhar. 

As per recent reports, Aditya Dhar is reviving Raat Baaki Hai as a producer. Reportedly, the film will now feature his actress-wife Yami Gautam alongside Pratik Gandhi (Scam 1992 fame). However, an official announcement is still awaited.
