The Refugee pair is back again after six years of cold war. Kareena Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan will star together in Abbas Mustan's next.
The relation between the two soured when Abhishek-Karisma enagement was called off. But now the duo have agreed to pair up in Abbas Mustan’s untitled film, a remake of the Hollywood film, Italian Job. The movie will also star Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh in lead roles.
A source says, “Initially talks were on with Saif Ali Khan but he did not have dates and Abhishek Bachchan replaced him. Although Saif and Kareena’s chemistry would have sizzled onscreen, it will be nice to watch Abhishek and Kareena after Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon, which was their last film together in 2003. Both actors made their acting debut together in Refugee and have been in the industry for years but have only starred together in two films till date.”
While Kareena’s manager Zahid denies that she has signed the film, a source close to Abbas Mustan tells a daily, “The directors always had Kareena in mind and now they have managed to get Katrina on board too. The film will go on the floors in April and like every Abbas Mustan film, this too will also be shot on a lavish budget at international locations. The directors are clear about who they want to cast in the film.”
