Kareena Kapoor to recreate Helen’s magic
Kareena Kapoor will be dancing to ‘Yeh mera dil pyaar ka deewana’ for Farhan Akhtar’s remake Don. Helen rocked the nation with her moves to this number in the 70’s for the earlier version of Don. Don is the remake of a film with the same title; the new version is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. It is also directed by Farhan Akhtar and stars Shahrukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Arjun Rampal.
Recently, Shahrukh and Kareena were spotted shooting an item number at Filmcity Studios. Shahrukh wore a floral printed shirt while Kareena was wearing a jazzy dance outfit. Farah Khan has choreographed the moves for this number. The director wants to create the same kind of awe and hysteria that Helen created when she danced to this number. But Bollywood diva Kareena refuses to divulge too many details on the movie and her role. She merely states that it’s a cameo and that it was definitely a pleasure working with so many talented actors.
Kareena and Shahrukh will be coming together on screen after a period of five years. They have earlier done a film for Santosh Sivan, Asoka. Kareena, Priyanka and Shahrukh are also slated to appear in a Pepsi commercial together. Hence, they share a comfortable rapport with each other. Besides this film, Kareena has her hands full with Vishal Bharadwaj’s Omkara which she claims is the best role that she has been offered in her film career so far. This film is a multi starrer with Ajay Devgan, Naseeruddin Shah, Vivek Oberoi, Konkana Sen, Bipasha Basu and Saif Ali Khan. She will also star in Abbas Mustan’s 36 China Town with real life beau Shahid Kapur. She will also be doing Zoya Akhtar’s film with Hrithik Roshan.
This gal definitely has a full agenda for the year 2006, let’s hope that she can get that one much awaited box office hit this time round.
