Every actor in the Kapoor clan seems to have a penchant for direction too. After cousin Ranbir, who directed a brief sequence in his last flick, Rockstar, it was time for Kareena to don the director’s hat.

The actor recently directed a scene in her next, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. The film’s director, Shakun Batra, wanted Bebo and her co-star Imran Khan to shoot a scene in Las Vegas, where they’d have to behave drunk on the streets.

Apparently, he wanted natural reactions from the public without anyone realising that they were being filmed.

“When Kareena and Imran were told about it,  they seemed a little unsure. But later, she took charge of the entire shoot and after rehearsing it with Imran, they shot the sequence with ease. Kareena led the way and almost directed the entire sequence,” says a source.

Batra confirmed this saying “I wanted people to react naturally towards them. It was a fun sight. Bebo took the lead, and with Imran, behaved like they were actually drunk, lying down on escalators, making faces at others and giving strangers high fives. It has turned out to be a very natural sequence.”

However, when the makers got the scene right, they revealed to the public that they were making a film, and the people left laughing.
