Kareena and Akshay to star together in Kambhakt Ishq

Kareena Kapoor and Akshay Kumar have been paired together for their fifth film Kambhakt Ishq. It is a romantic film with a dose of comedy and it is being directed by Saabir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. This is the first time that Kareena will be working with Sajid and his production house.
Kareena’s last film Jab We Met opposite ex-beau Shahid Kapur was a hit and everyone has been raving about her performance in the film. Now Kareena wants to tread cautiously and Kambhakt Ishq is the first film that Bebo has signed after her success. Kareena said “This is the first film that I have signed after Jab We Met, so you can understand how much I loved the script. It's a great role and I've been wanting to work with Sajid for a long time. I am also looking forward to working with Akshay again after Tashan. This is my fifth film with Akshay and we have always shared a wonderful chemistry on screen.” Kareena’s sister Karisma too has worked with Sajid Nadiadwala in two hit films Jeet and Judwa earlier in her career. Bebo too hopes that the magic of her hits will continue to work for Sajid’s film.

Sajid Nadiadwala too is happy to work with Kareena for the first time. After he saw the film Jab We Met, he decided to cast Bebo for the role in his film as he was quite impressed with her performance. Sajid had been looking for a suitable actress for his film since three months and has finally settled on Bebo. Sajid said “I am happy that Kareena and I will be working together for the first time. She suits the role perfectly.” Sajid and Kareena’s dad Randhir too have worked together on a few film projects earlier. Sajid also claims that the film will be made on an international scale and around nine Hollywood actors will make an appearance in the film. The film is set to go on the floors in January 2008.
