She openly admits that Aamir Khan is God for her as far as show business goes. And once she gets on the subject of this Khan, beau Saif Ali Khan jokes that it’s going to be a three-hour conversation.
It’s taken Kareena Kapoor close to 30 years to get a chance to romance sister Karisma’s Raja Hindustani. And despite the 15-year difference between them, Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots proved that the chemistry between the two is sizzling khandvi, dhokla, fafda, et al.Speculations are rife that the two will come together once again for Aamir’s next movie that is expected to flag off in February 2011. But Reema Kagti who made a promising debut with Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd in 2007, denies having locked Kareena as Aamir’s co-star in her second movie as director.
Apparently, Kagti is being wooed by many A-listers, including Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and even Robot star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for this two-heroine movie. With bestseller Aamir heading the cast, the suspense drama that will be shot majorly in Mumbai, is one of the most coveted projects going.
Says Kagti, “Almost every heroine in town is being considered but all these discussions are still in a nascent stage. All I can tell you is that no actress has been finalised yet.”
While Kareena is one of the strong contenders, apparently Karan Johar’s home production with Imran Khan, Short Term Shaadi, will start filming in Las Vegas around the same time and that may put the actor in the unenviable position of having to choose between mamu (uncle) and bhanja (nephew).
The actor already has a film each with all the top Khans next year, including Saif (Agent Vinod), Shah Rukh (Ra.One), Salman (Bodyguard) and Imran (Short Term Shaadi). This film with Aamir would make it a fab five for Kareena, whose Golmaal 3 is expected to make more money than Golmaal or Golmaal Returns. Kagti’s film is a joint venture of Aamir Khan Productions and Excel Entertainment.
Aamir had earlier starred in Farhan Akhtar and Riteish Sidhwani’s debut production, Dil Chahta Hai in 2001, alongside Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna. The film is expected to release in the second half of 2011.
