Kareena Kapoor, who couldn't stop raving about working with maverick filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his next film Ram Leela, has now walked out of the project.

Earlier it was said that Kareena was ousted from the film because of her impending marriage as her wedding date was clashing with the film's shooting schedule but Kareena has clarified that she walked out of the project due to date and monetary issues.

The story goes that Kareena had allotted 100 days for the shooting of Ram Leela in August but Bhansali wanted her to shoot for more days. Kareena couldn't allot more dates for Ram Leela as she signed three new films for next year and the shooting for one of them begins in October immediately after the release of Heroine. Furthermore, the makers of Ram Leela were not even willing to compensate Kareena for her extra dates and that didn't seem viable to Kareena as she can shoot for 3 films in 150 days instead of doing just one film.

After walking out of Ram Leela, it is now possible for Kareena to give 32 days of promotional time for Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine, a film that is very special for her.

Ram Leela is said to be an adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Romeo Juliet' and stars Ranveer Singh as a male lead. According to reports, Priyanka Chopra may replace Kareena in the film.
