OMG: Pregnant Kareena Kapoor opts out of ‘Veera Di Wedding’


According to the latest grapevine, Kareena Kapoor Khan has opted out of Rhea Kapoor’s highly anticipated film, ‘Veera Di Wedding’. Kareena, who was almost confirmed for the film has taken her words back due to health issues. Kareena is in her second trimester and she is feeling all sorts of pregnancy-related problems and so she has decided to walk out of the film.

Kareena Kapoor is expected to deliver her first child with Saif Ali Khan in December. She was supposed to start shooting for ‘Veera Di Wedding’ in August but for some unknown reasons, the film pushed ahead to October. Health wise, she is not keeping good and wanted to take a break from work.

Adds the source, “Bebo has already had a word with producer Rhea and shared her fears. While she was looking forward to shooting, she hadn’t anticipated morning sickness, fatigue and other pregnancy-related conditions.

There are some days she is not in a condition to get out of bed, and the actress feels that by the time the film goes on the floor next month, she may or may not feel better. She doesn’t want to put Rhea and Ekta in a fix. The film has to be completed in two months, and if the actress is advised bedrest (like her doctor has warned), the shooting will get stalled.”

Says the insider, “Also, once she begins shoot for the film, the producers will have no choice but to wait for her and she doesn’t want them to incur losses because of her. At this stage, even though it is late, they can replace her without any losses. Yes, it will be a headache to hunt for a leading lady of Bebo’s stature at the last minute, but it’s better than having the film stalled.”

Now Ekta Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor are in a fix to find a right replacement for Bebo. Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhansakra are already confirmed for the other female leads for ‘Veera Di Wedding’ .
