Kareena to dance on Srideviâ€™s hit songs
Kareena Kapoor has done an exception. She will dance to veteran actress Sridevi’s songs to pay tribute to the versatile actress. Usually Kareena danced to her own songs and only once she danced to her sister Karisma Kapoor’s song on her honor. But Bebo has broken the taboo and for Ekta Kapoor's sake she will dance on Sridevi's hit numbers. Ekta forced her to dance to Sridevi’s medley of songs.
Ekta finds Kareena very resemblance to Sridevi and she ardently wants Bebo to shake her legs to Sridevi’s tune at the Global Indian Film and Television Honours (GIFTH), an initiation of Balaji's.
Says a source close to Kareena, "She will be performing to a medley of Sridevi's hit songs at Balaji's Global Indian Film & TV Honours.
Sridevi will be present there. Kareena will perform to songs like Morni bagamaa bole, Mere haatho mein nau nau chudiyaan hain and Hawa hawai among many others. She has handpicked and selected the songs herself."
"Normally, Kareena doesn't pay tributes to other actors but likes to dance to her own songs. When Ekta came and met her and explained the concept of how she wanted B-Town's reigning queen (Kareena) to pay a tribute to another reigning queen of the previous generation (Sridevi), Kareena couldn't refuse," said the source.
"Sridevi is iconic. This generation has no idea about her fan following. Sridevi was a darling of the masses, like Kareena is today! I find Kareena and Sridevi very similar filmi heroines with whom the masses instantly connect too," said Ekta.
