Being one of the top actors in Bollywood is not an easy position to maintain, but for Kareena Kapoor,
it’s just a way of life. After completing Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine, she will begin work on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela, which will be shot in the interiors of Gujarat.
Kareena says, “Sanjay is probably the only big director I haven’t worked with in my career. I’m looking forward to it because every actor wants to work with Sanjay at least once. This movie will be like a painting I hang on my wall and look back at after 20 years with fond memories.”

In Ram Leela she is cast opposite Ranveer Singh, who is a self-confessed fan of her work. Kareena says, “I’ve heard about that. I think Ranveer will be a fun guy to work with.”As of now, the actor is still finishing Madhur’s project. When asked about it, she says, “The journey is on. We have 40 days to go. It is a special film that revolves around the life of a superstar.”
Her role will explore the psyche of an actor. The film will also see Kareena doing some intimate scenes with co-star Randeep Hooda. But hadn’t she said long ago that she would do no such scenes onscreen? “I’m just doing what the script is asking for. I don’t think the audience really wants to see me do such scenes. So they’ll probably see my bare back or something,” says the actor.
Currently Kareena is the face of many brands, including Limca’s new campaign — Pyaas Badhao. She says, “The concept excited me. People would never have imagined seeing Kareena, cricket and a soft drink together. Also, my personality is like Limca — very tangy.”
