I’ve some really interesting tiddy-bitty on Kareena Kapoor, announces Rapchik Rajni as she saunters into my penthouse. Seems like she had gone for the launch of the book on 3 Idiots, from where she picked up exactly how Bebo bagged the blockbuster.
I’m informed that the actress herself stated that she has only one person to thank for the movie. Wonder of wonders, it’s none other than her momma, Babita. The Kapoor kudi revealed that Babitaji suggested that she herself call Hirani when he had still not made up his mind about the film’s heroine. So at momma’s behest, Bebo contacted Raju bhai, saying that since he’s a Sindhi and she’s half-Sindhi (Babitaji is a Sindhi), he should be a little partial to the community and give her preference over other actresses.
Rajni tells me that Raju bhai could only blush at this statement made by heroine. But when he was probed further about his ‘bias,’ he enthused that he and Bebo bonded big time over Sindhi food, which she’d get on the sets during the shoot. Wah, kya baat hai.
