Kareena declines to play Jessica Lal

Actress Kareena Kapoor turned down director Raj Kumar Gupta’s (who directed Aamir) film where she was asked to play Jessica Lal in ‘No One Killed Jessica’. Kareena said that she could not accept the offer as she could not connect with the character. She is more likely to do films like ‘Kurbaan’ which is based on the present socio-political theme.

She said, "I want to do meaty parts with off-mainstream directors like Dibakar Banerjee and Raj Kumar Gupta. But the roles have to justify my presence. I can't do a bit part in an offbeat film just to prove I can act. Right now, I'm shooting for Stepmom and can't think of anything. Not even Saif's film, which is like my own home production."

Bebo likes to do off-beat films but it should center on her. "If I do offbeat roles, they better be worth my while. If I work with Sudhir Mishra again after Chameli, I'd want to do the title role," explained Kareena.

She is eagerly looking forward to her two releases, ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Kurbaan’.
