It is to be noted that Deepika Padukone, who is very friendly with the liquor baron’s son Siddharth, has become incredibly close to the household and gossip is she might fill in Katrina’s shoes this year.
However, top informers also indicate that since the perception is that Deepika is seeing Siddharth, she will not be asked to be a brand ambassador and it is also likely that the company will get another actress with a Bangalore connect to be the face.
An industry insider and a close friend of Katrina says, “Katrina has decided to opt out since she is of the belief that she will not do justice to her responsibility towards the team”.
We learn that she will be shooting in Agra for Aditya Chopra’s “Mere Brother Ki Dulhan” during the IPL games and will not be able to make her appearances to support the team. Hence the decision to step down as the ambassador.
