Kareena Kapoor loses Madhubalaâ€™s role because of Ranbir
Dream role of Kareena Kapoor is not with her anymore because of Ranbir Kapoor. In Kishore Kumar biopic Kareena Kapoor had apparently been cast to play Madhubala however now since Ranbir is playing the singer-actor-filmmaker, Kareena cannot be paired romantically with her cousin. The producers, UTV, and the director, Anurag Basu has begun to brainstorm over whom to cast opposite Ranbir.
UTV had considered Kareena when Shoojit Sircar was expected to direct the movie as confirmed by sources. UTV shares a great rapport with Aamir Khan who played the lead in their blockbuster, Rang De Basanti, had initiated talks with Khan on the biopic about two years back.
Incidentally, Khan and Sircar did not agree on certain elements and then UTV initiate talks with Shah Rukh Khan however things didn’t work out with SRK eithe. Finally Sircar also opted out Anurag Basu took over.
“UTV decided to wait till they had confirmed the actor to play Kishore Kumar before approaching Kareena for Madhubala’s role. But before initiating talks with the Khans, UTV had told Kishore Kumar’s wife, Leena Chandavarkar, that they had Kareena in mind, they weren’t sure if Ranbir would agree. But once he gave the nod, Kareena was out.”” according to sources.
Ranbir is all set but suspense remains over the role of Madhubala for Kishore Kumar biopic.
