Not Katrina, Kareena to romance Akshay in ‘Singh Is Bling’

There has been lots of speculation as who would be Akshay Kumar’s ladylove in his forthcoming film, ‘Singh Is Bling’. It was highly assumed that Katrina Kaif would cast alongside Akshay on looking at their superb pairing and the hit they have delivered together. But finally the project went to Kareena Kapoor.

Akshay and Kareena worked together in movies like Ajnabee, Talaash, Aitraaz, Dosti, Bewafaa, Tashan and Kambakkht Ishq and now again Prabhu Deva has roped them together. Considering that Prabhu’s film mainly focuses on male lead, will now have Kareena Kapoor an important role to play.

Kareena Kapoor has few new projects lined up. She has signed Sujoy Ghosh in the title role of ‘Durga Rani Singh’ and signed Bejoy Nambiar, Farhan Akhtar’s film. Prabhu Dheva met Kareena on Friday; he narrated the script which was apparently liked by her.

When asked if Kareena would have much to do in a film where Akshay Kumar plays the title role, Prabhu says, "The heroines in my film always have their own space in the plot. Was Sonakshi Sinha in Rowdy Rathod or R... Rajkumar just a decorative doll? No way! My films may be titled after the hero, but the heroine has no reason to complain."

Producer Ashvini Yardi is tight lipped about it though and said, "It's too early to talk about it. We are yet to finalise the lead actress. We will make an announcement later this month."
