Speaking about her part in The Buckingham Murders, Kareena told Hollywood trade magazine Variety in an interview, “I love Mare of Easttown and when Hansal came to me, I said this is something that I’ve really been dying to do. So we’ve molded a little bit on those lines, she plays a detective cop in that. It’s the first time that I’ve dabbled in that.”

Besides the murder mystery, Kareena has also completed Sujoy Ghosh's The Devotion of Suspect X, which is an official adaptation of Japanese author Higashino Keigo’s popular novel. The Netflix film, which is Kareena's OTT debut, also stars Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma.

Besides The Buckingham Murders and The Devotion of Suspect X, Kareena will begin shooting for The Crew in March. Directed by Rajesh Krishnan, the film also stars Tabu and Kriti Sanon. The actor said it was completely different to her other two films and would contain the regular gloss and glamour associated with her previous films. She called it "a comedy chick flick heist film".

Kareena made her acting debut with JP Dutta's Refugee (2000) opposite Abhishek Bachchan. She won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut with her performance in Refugee. She is known for her roles in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Chameli, Dev, Omkara, Jab We Met, 3 Idiots, Heroine, Udta Punjab and Good Newwz. She was last seen in the Aamir Khan-starrer Laal Singh Chaddha.
