Madhu my Mottu Maid has come in with my tea, and the news that stylist Manish Malhotra is finally making his debut as a director. The movie will be produced by Karan Johar.
Mottu tells me that given Manish’s long association with the Kapoor sisters, one thought he would cast Kareena as the heroine, in his directorial debut, that requires two actresses and one actor. But there’s no sign yet about Bebo being the lead in the movie, she sighs.
She claims to have even asked the Kapoor kudi about the movie. “Manish is like my brother. If he needs me, he only has to call me. He hasn’t,” Mots recalls Bebo’s words.
