"Revathy has had a few sittings with Katrina over the past few months. The duo met few days ago in Mumbai for another narration. While the actor seems to be interested in the project, she will take a call only after the final narration. If Katrina gives her nod, it will mark her first biopic," a source was quoted as telling the daily.

"She will have to undergo rigorous prep for the part, including adopting PT Usha's sprinting style. Since the athlete is on board, she is likely to supervise the actor. For now though, Katrina has only signed Sooryavanshi after Bharat," added the source.

Katrina is currently busy promoting her next film, Bharat opposite Salman Khan. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film is slated to release this Eid. The film also stars Disha Patani and Jackie Shroff in lead roles.
