Ranbir and Katrina surprised everyone with strong portrayal of youngsters who were forced into politics under circumstances. Kareena Kapoor is all set to follow their footsteps. It has been heard that Farhan Akhtar has offered Bebo a lead role in Excel Entertainment’s political drama.
The very famous filmmaker Sudhir Mishra who got Kareena to act in Chameli has been roped in to direct this film. Will the critically acclaimed actress-director duo be able to create the Chameli magic again?
Sudhir Mishra has confirmed the news saying, “Yes, we have approached Kareena Kapoor for the next film, which will be produced by Farhan Akhtar known as Bhrub. I was planning a remake of Devdas but things didn’t work out as the script I was writing became something else. The script went on to become Bhrub. Bhrub is the name of the central character of the film around whom the complete movie will revolve. It is about a person who is the heir of a huge political family. Kareena will be playing the female protagonist. She has an equally important role in the film. About the male lead in this movie, we have few names in mind, but this will be finalized only when Farhan is free, post the shooting of Don 2. We will sit together and brainstorm.”
Sudhir continued saying, “Kareena completely broke free from the commercial films in Chameli and that is when people noticed her potential as an actor. I want to do that again as she has been exploited enough considering her talent as an actor.”
There are rumors of Abhay and Farhan doing the lead role, but who knows. Watch this space for more.
He is famous for giving glam dolls of Bollywood a milestone in their career. After giving Priyanka Chopra Fashion and Bipasha Basu Corporate, this National Award winning filmmaker, Madhur Bhandarkar, claims that his new movie will lead Kareena to best film in her career. “Kareena has been wanting to work with me for quite a long time. But due to some reasone we had not been able to team up. She blindly trusts me and my talent and the feeling is mutual,” said Madhur Bhandarkar.
The film will hit the floors in December, and is already making buzz that Madhur is planning to give Kareena a new look. He wants to give Kareena iconic looks of all the Hollywood legendary actresses like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Vivien Leigh and Eva Gardner. “This is going to be Kareena’s best performance of her life. I can guarantee that. She is a talented artist and she will be in her full bloom in this one,” added Madhur.
This 41 year old director completed his degree in film-making, when he was a video delivery boy. He always wanted to cover women issues and that has been his trademark in the industry. “People in industry are afraid to raise these issues. They think that it would not generate any interest in the audience. But, I am here to prove this notion wrong. All my films have had strong women characters and they have been liked by people,” said Bhandarkar. Talking about his strong female characters, Madhur says that all his heroines have thanked me for their roles. “Every time I meet Konkona she mentions how peope recognize her as Page 3 actress. Same is the case with Bipasha and Priyanka. It is nice to hear such things. I am equally proud to have worked with these actresses,” said Madhur.
However, before he starts shooting for another women centric movie, he is excited about his debut comedy movie Dil To Bacha Hai Ji, which is inspired by Gulzar’s lyrics in the film Ishqiya. He is working with an unusual star cast; Ajay Devgan, Emraan Hashmi and Omi Vaidya. Madhur said that this movie will be a tribute to the famous comedian Hrishikesh Mukherjee and ensures that the audience will be surprised. He said, “Ajay is playing a husband, having constant nok jhok with his wife, Emraan plays a carefree Casanova while Omiâ€™s character is a surprise.” The filmmaker is still looking for heroines for this movie. The audience will now get a taste of Madhur Bhandarkar’s comedy this December.

I land in Mumbai at 9 pm and from the domestic airport, go to international terminal. I board a flight to Marrakech, Morocco for Saif’s Agent Vinod in a couple of hours after that. It has been so hectic that I won’t have time to go home and pack my stuff. In fact, I have asked to pack all my stuff and meet me at the airport.” Kareena is very sad that she will not be there for Karisma’s birthday. “I have asked Lolo and Samaira to come to the airport for half an hour so we can sit and chat in the car. I don’t know if Samiara can come so late at night but I would love to have her come. I am feeling terrible that I won’t see her for more than a month,” added Bebo. Kareena is very busy till the year end. She said, “I have three films to complete Golmaal 3, Ra.One and Agent Vinod. Then Madhur’s film will start in December. Then I am endorsing 11 brands and have performed at every award show this year. In September and October, I get busy with the promotion of Golmaal 3 and Karan’s Stepmom. I have requested Sharukh to keep a schedule of Ra.One in Mumbai so I can be there for promoting and he has agreed.” Lately there has been a buzz that Kareena is signed for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next project Heera Mandi. Looks like Lola has her hands full!
Kareena Kapoor for the first time will be portraying a tomboyish character in her upcoming movie Golmaal 3, which is directed by Rohit Shetty. When the director was writing the story of this movie, he thought of giving Kareena’s glamorous image a break and offer an unusual role. He wanted her to be a part of the boy’s gang, which comprises of Ajay Devgan, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Khemu, Tusshar Kapoor and Shreyas Talpade.
A close source revealed, “Kareena will sport casual wear in this film. No designer dresses, shoes and bags for her. She will play a badass who spouts abusive tapori language and rides around on a bike. She will be seen doing dadagiri like boys in the gang.” When asked about the role, Bebo she said, “My look in Golmaal 3 is non-glamorous. It is young and grunge, keeping the weather and look of Goa in mind. I play a tomboy but with a feminine touch. Though I will be using tapori language, it will not be too abusive or vulgar. It will be well in tone with my persona.”
When asked was about this news Rohit Shetty, he confirmed and said, “I wanted to give Kareena a new image with this movie. She is one of the boys in the film, and will be sporting minimal make-up. She is talking with Manish Malhotra and they will come up with the right look for the part. I have tried not to make her use too much foul language or abusive lingo. Her whole look and hair will be undergoing a thorough change. Her character in the film is not that rich. We are looking forward to teaching Bebo some exciting language. She has already become a goonda now.”
Recently, Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan hugged and patched up; even Kareena has ended her cold war with Aishwarya. All of this happened at Karan Johar’s birthday party last year.

The patch up took place at Shahrukh’s bungalow, Mannat, where King Khan had his celebration of My Name Is Khan.
A source said, “Shahid and Kareena came face to face, everyone thought they would simply ignore each other like they have done so many times in the past. But this time, Karan happened to be present right there and instead of marching past each other they slowed down for a bit. And the rest, as they say, is history.” They both had a warm exchange and even Saif joined them later. Kareena and Shahid were both unavailable for comments. Kareena’s spokesperson said, “Kareena has no problem with anybody, including Shahid.”
The famous Bollywood photographer Dabboo Ratnani’s annual 2010 calendar is out. This is the 11th year where he has captured all the top celebrities for his trademark calendar. The calendar this year will have a black-and-white theme.
Deepika Padukone’s picture looks like she is not wearing anything, since all the body parts you see are bare. Dabboo Ratnani says, “I wanted to make her look sensual, but aesthetic. Last year, I shot her in a sari, so this is in total contrast. She strikes a thinking, dreamy pose, and I have used lighting to match her mood. Normally Bollywood is associated with bright colors. Black and white images are of the bygone eras but I opted for a stark B&W mood in the snapshots is dark but the styling modem.”
Every year, Dabboo starts his preparations in October. Although, he has many interactions with the celebrities for their shots for magazines, movies and portfolios, every year all of them take time out for the calendar.

He says, “They are all my friends and go out of their way to cooperate. For me they all look hot.” Dabboo Ratnani is not interested in selling his calendar in the market, it is exclusively made for the Bollywood celebrities.

Producer Boney Kapoor comes up with a plan to release his long time pending film Milenge Milenge starring Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor on Valentine’s Day next year.
According to a source, “Boney, his director Satish Kaushik and other top executives clearly feel that no date is more suited to this film than Valentine’s Day. Even some distributors are in agreement.”
The trade sources think that Valentine’s Day is the best time to release the film, as youngsters will look for a love story on the day. The traders also believe that Jab We Met was successful because Shahid and Kareena split before the actual release of the film. “There is more magic to a screen couple that is not romantically involved in real life,” adds the source. So they are expecting the same benefit for Milenge Milenge. “So Milenge Milenge stands a good chance.”
Boney confirmed the news of releasing it in February but said that it has nothing to do with Valentine’s Day. “However, I’m not involved in all these release strategies that people are talking about. I have a team working on the release pattern. If it coincides with Valentine’s Day, then so be it,” said Boney.
He also hopes that Kareena and Shahid will act professionally and will do whatever is expected from them for the film.
When he got some time off from work, Saif Ali Khan immediately landed in Sydney to surprise girlfriend Kareena Kapoor who was shooting for Karan Johar’s Stepmom.

However, Kareena will break her Sydney schedule to attend childhood friend Reena Pillai’s wedding in Mumbai on December 10.

But does it bother them if their family is going to watch it? Well yes, it does matter. Ask Kareena, who requested producer Karan Johar to cut the intimate scene from Kurbaan for the one show in which her mother Babita and Babita’s friends will be watching.
The actress is nervous about her mother’s reaction to the scenes. “I asked Karan if he could hide that one reel only from mom’s trial,” said the no 1 Bollywood actresses. Karan in turn told her, “Shut up Bebo, and go take a walk. I’m doing no such thing.”
Currently the actress is in Sydney, for shooting Karan’s next Step Mom along with Kajol. But a source close to her says that the only thing which was on her mind till she boarded the flight was how her family will react to the intimate scene from Kurbaan.
