'I have left 'Shuddhi', confirms Kareena Kapoor

Things does not seem to be going too well for one of the favorite heroines of Bollywood. Karena Kapoor seems to have been suffering from a run of bad luck as her projects are either getting delayed or cancelled. A lot of excitement was centered on Karan Johar’s next project, Shuddhiwhich was supposed to bring together Kareena and Hrithik Roshan together on celluloid after nearly a decade. However, when Hrithik had to opt out of the project due to health reasons, major rearrangement in the cast was announced. Director Karan Johar had announced that he is now looking for a new pair for this film and rumors are running strong that Ranvir and Deepika are now being considered.

Another project of Kareena which was in the pipeline is Bombay Velvet, but that too has been delayed. She is starring opposite Farhan Akhtar in this film. According to reports, Excel Entertainment which is producing the film, is currently tied up with another production involving Shah Rukh Khan and this has led to the delay in Bombay Velvet.

Asked about her reaction to this run of bad luck, Bebo told PTI in an exclusive interview, "I have left 'Shuddhi', I am not part of it anymore. I am not at all disheartened about it. It ('Bombay Samurai' getting delayed) gives me more time for myself and to holiday... I am married now I am not running a relay marathon now. I don't know why the press makes such a big deal about it."

Talking about her pending projects, Kareena said, "After 'Singham 2', we will shoot for 'Bombay Samurai'. It (film) needs international crew so we will begin (to) work on it post September."

Kareena had recently passed over a number of projects like Queen, Ram leela, Black, Chennai Express, Kal ho na ho, Fashion etc. Asked about her reaction to these decisions whereby the films went to other actresses and became blockbusters, Kareena said, "I feel honored and glad to give work to other people. I hope they (actresses) become stars as I have rejected big films." Talking further about her career choices, she said, "I am looking for films that I want to be part of... something that excites me. I listen to about two stories a day but I am not going to say yes to anyone, no matter who it is. I don't think whether that person is big (filmmaker) or not. I will go by the script and that is more important for me and I have learnt that over the years."
