After Katrina's award-worthy portrayal of a politician in Raajneeti, it's now Kareena's turn to shed her glam avatar to don the politician's robe.
Reportedly, the actress will play a politician's role in Sudhir Mishra's upcoming political drama. Though the lead actor is yet to be decided Mishra has already confirmed Kareena as the lead actress.
Sudhir Mishra confirmed to Mumbai Mirror, "Yes, we have approached Kareena Kapoor for my forthcoming film to be produced by Farhan called Bhrub. The Devdas remake I was planning didn't work out as the script I wrote became something else. That script went on to become Bhrub."
Talking about the film Mishra revealed, "Bhrub happens to be the name of the central character around which the film will revolve. It's about a man who's an heir to a political family. Kareena will play the female protagonist. She has an equally important role to play. As far as the male lead is concerned, we have few names in mind but that will happen once Farhan gets free post the shooting of his Don 2. We will sit together and brainstorm."Though primarily seen in glamourous roles, Kareena has played hard-hitting characters in Chameli and Dev.
"Kareena broke free from commercial films in Chameli and that was when people realised the potential that was hidden inside her as an actor. I intend to do that again as she hasn't been exploited enough as an actor considering her immense talent," Mishra explained.
