Not for ‘Dhoom 3’ in fact, but the actress will be in the city to promote a jewellery brand she endorses

With the pre buzz surrounding the high profile release of the action-thriller, ‘Dhoom 3’, fans of the hugely popular film franchise will be in for an adrenaline rush as lead actress and Bollywood diva Katrina Kaif has confirmed her visit to Dubai this week.

The popular actress will be in Dubai on December 5.

Her visit comes days after Deepika Padukone wowed UAE audiences with her performance at the ‘Access All Areas’ concert, alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit-Nene.

However, unlike her co-stars who jet into Dubai on a blitzkrieg to promote their upcoming films, Katrina will be here on a brand endorsement visit for
Gitanjali, an Indian jewellery conglomerate, which will be launching its diamond jewellery brand, Nakshatra, at Paris Gallery here.

Katrina has been the face of Nakshatra for the past five years, which was incidentally earlier endorsed by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

While the organisers have not confirmed whether Katrina will be meeting and greeting fans, she is likely to visit either the Paris Gallery outlet in Dubai Mall or Dubai Festival City as per sources.

It would be interesting to see whether the Dubai International Film Festival teams up with Yash Raj Films and ropes her in to promote ‘Dhoom 3’ on opening night, while walking the red carpet; the film fest runs from December 6 to 14.

And no, we don’t know if rumoured beau and Padukone’s ex-flame, Ranbir Kapoor, will be in tow.

But we won’t be surprised if that would be the case, with the duo spotted earlier this year at a popular restaurant at DIFC, holding hands.
