Kareena Kapoor down with fever

The grand finale of the blockbuster television series, ‘Khatron ke khiladi’, season 5 was slated to be a much publicized affair. Rohit Shetty who is anchoring the show is now unquestionably one of the leaders of the small screen. The finale was supposed to have been graced by Ajay Devgn and his glamorous costar Kareena Kapoor. Anticipation have been building up around this lead pair who would soon feature in their new film titled ‘Singham returns’ which is going to be an action blockbuster. This will be a landmark outing for Rohit Shetty and his lead pair. However, things did not work out exactly as planned during the shooting of the grand finale episode.

Kareena was conspicuously missing in the celebrations of the final episode of the television series ‘Khatron ke khiladi’. Reportedly, the actress was down with flu. A leading daily reported that the actress claimed to have viral fever. However, the real news came later. Bebo was seen partying at a popular suburban place in Mumbai and she looked not only to be in the best of health but also ready to party on. It seems Kareena deliberately missed the pre launch publicity of ‘Singham returns’ as planned with Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty and instead found a better use of her time by partying with friends. This probably seems a little too risky considering the performance of Bebo’s last few films at the box office and the number of controversies and tantrum news that seem to have sprung up around her in recent years.

It remains to be seen how Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty reacts to this stunt of Kareena as it affects the publicity of a film where they are both involved. Reportedly, it was not Rohit’s idea to bring the glamorous actress on board. The show has actually been rather devoid of leading celebrity names. Instead, attention has been centered on the actions in the series. However, the channel Colors insisted that a new star should be brought in to glam up the show and Kareena was chosen because it will help in a pre publicity launch of ‘Singham returns’ too. Rohit, Ajay and Kareena had earlier worked in hits like ‘Golmaal returns’ and ‘Golmaal 3’. However, the rather strange behavior of Kareena has definitely affected the publicity campaign of the new film.

The winner of the show is likely to be chosen from Rajneesh Duggal, Nikitin Dheer and Gurmeet Choudahry.
