    Actress Kareena Kapoor says it was the village set up of Punit Malhotra's Gori Tere Pyaar Mein that made her say yes to the project.

Director Punit Malhotra's film Gori Tere Pyaar Mein was initially meant to be a two-hero two-heroine project and he wanted Saif Ali Khan in it.

"At one point of time this film was a two hero-two heroine subject. I only went to the boys. It was Saif and Imran. But for some reasons that didn't work out. I then made it into a solo hero film," Punit told PTI.

Post his directorial debut I Hate Luv Storys, it took Punit long to come up with his Gori Tere Pyaar Mein.

"Imran (Khan) made me wait a lot. I took three drafts to him, he had issues with first and second draft. When I went for the third time, he approved the first draft only. That led to the delay but I have no complaints," Punit told PTI.

There were rumours that he had also approached Shahid Kapoor for the project. Punit admitted to having gone to another actor but did not wish to name him.

"Imran initially rejected it, so I went to another actor, but that didn't work out and I made the changes in the script and went back to Imran and then he liked the first draft itself," he said.

Saif did not agree to do the film and later it became a solo hero project.

"Things with Saif never worked out, but he said take Kareena. We also felt at some point that there is too much happening, so we mellowed it down and made it one hero film," Punit said.

"We were first waiting for Imran's approval and after that happened, we started thinking about the female lead opposite him. Imran asked me who I wanted, I said Kareena but I felt she was beyond my reach," the director said.

"Also she had lot of projects in hand at that time. Then it so happened that she walked out of those projects and her dates opened up. I called her, narrated the script and it worked out well," he said.
