Katrina Kaif resumes shooting for Sriram Raghavan’s Merry Christmas opposite Vijay Sethupathi, shares latest update from film’s sets
Katrina Kaif took to social media today to give an update about her upcoming film Merry Christmas opposite Vijay Sethupathi. She shared a picture of the clapboard as she resumed shooting for the film. Merry Christmas is helmed by Sriram Raghavan. This is the first time that Katrina and Vijay will be sharing screen space together.
Katrina took to Instagram and shared the picture without any caption or emoji. However, the clapboard rested on what looked like the cover of the music of Gregory Peck’s iconic film Mackenna’s Gold; no reference was given about the use of the music score and the vinyl tape that could be seen beside the cover and the clapboard.
