Kareena refuses to bath under waterfall and do Mandakini act


One still remembers veteran actress Mandakini dancing under waterfall and flaunting her assets in modesty in white saree.  It was reported that Kareena Kapoor will do the Mandakini act in the sequel to ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai’ but the actress finally did not give her nod to the scene. Kareena is not comfortable enacting the scene and hence she requested the makers to drop the scene.

In the film, Akshay Kumar will play gangster Dawood Ibrahim and Kareena Kapoor will essay the role of his ladylove. It was said that Dawood fell for Mandakini  after seeing her bathing in waterfall in ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’. As Bebo is playing the role of Mandakini, the makers wanted her to enact the same scene which the actress refused.

A source revealed, "Madakini is remembered for that scene in Ram Teri Ganga Maili.

Milan didn't ask Kareena to go so bold. However, the scene that he had envisaged was quite titillating and demanded a certain amount of exposure. Kareena was not comfortable with it."

Explaining the backdrop of the movie, Milan said, "See, there's no denying that OUATIM Part 2 is a story based on the dreaded underworld don Dawood and his friend-turned-foe Chhota Rajan.

And Kareena plays the role similar to that of Mandakini, who was allegedly very close to Dawood at a point in time. Luthria, simply wanted to establish the connect."

The film will go on floors in January.
