Kareena Kapoor seems to be the flavour of the month, with many big films supposedly in her kitty. We wonder if it’s her overzealous PR machinery or if she really is signing up so many projects.
On Tuesday, according to the reports, Kareena would come together with Amitabh Bachchan for the second time in Prakash Jha’s Satyagrah, which will also star Ajay Devgn. The duo was last seen in Govind Nihalani’s 2004 film Dev, but they did not share a frame in the film.
But when we contacted Jha, he was unaware of the news. “I am busy with the dubbing and post-production of Chakravyuh right now. I haven’t even read the story,” he says, adding, “Who said Kareena is doing Satyagrah? Have I been quoted in the story? People just keep speculating. Let them do so. Until I go on record about it, please don’t believe any such reports.”
Insiders claimed that Jha had pulled off a casting coup for Satyagrah, which starts rolling in Bhopal this December.
Of late, Kareena’s name has been associated with multiple films, including Raajneeti 2, Punit Malhotra’s next and Karan Johar’s film adaptation of the book, The Immortals Of Meluha. Satyagrah is the fourth film that the actor has apparently taken on.
Out of the four films, only the makers of Punit’s next, in which she is expected to star opposite Imran Khan, have confirmed the news. Guess we will have to wait and watch what project she finally starts work on after she wraps up Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine, which releases in September.
Have I been quoted in the story? Until I go on record about it, don’t believe any reports.
