Kareena Kapoor: An Ekta Kapoor fan in Golmaal Returns
If not in real life, Kareena Kapoor is all set to play an Ekta Kapoor fan in reel life! So much so that her character in the forthcoming comedy, Golmaal Returns, is actually called Ekta! Kareena plays a young wife heavily inspired by Ekta's 'K' serials and is always accusing her husband (played by Ajay Devgan) of adultery.
Laughs Tusshar Kapoor, "Bebo plays a housewife who is heavily inspired by the saas-bahu serials. She is able to draw a parallel between her husband's infidelity with specific instances of infidelity from some of the TV serials. It's hilarious!" When we asked Ekta Kapoor herself to comment on Kareena's character being a Balaji soap fan, the former smiled, "That's flattering! Long live the saas-es and bahus!"
Kareena has taken her fondness for Ekta to the next level by deciding to hold a special screening for the television czarina next week once the prints are out. Ekta is also said to be keen to have the director of Golmaal Returns, Rohit Shetty, direct the much-awaited sequel of Kya Kool Hain Hum.
Golmaal Returns was cleared on Friday by the Indian censors with a 'U' certificate and no cuts. Kareena's special screening will be attended by her friends Lovely Singh (who gave her It's Rocking), sister Karisma Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, among others.
Golmaal Returns is out in cinemas on Wednesday 29th October.
