Kareena Kapoor to turn director?
Apparently Karan Johar will give the actress her own project to direct after she impressed him with her behind-the-scene skills in his latest production
If the buzz is to be believed, Kareena Kapoor may soon direct a film for Dharma Productions. In fact, producer Karan Johar might give her a project after her marriage to Saif Ali Khan.
Apparently, Bebo's involvement with behind-the-camera activities started with Agent Vinod. By the time she came to Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, she was not just curious about scripting, editing, mixing and background music, she was almost an assistant director on the sets.
A source from the production house says, "Kareena and Karan are like soul siblings. She discusses a lot of ideas with him. And she also got to be a part of the behind-the-scenes team in EMAET.
It was during the shooting that Karan realised how great an aptitude Bebo has for cinema. In fact, she gave very crucial tips for revising and improving the script too."
The source also adds that all of Kareena's suggestions were in fact incorporated in the script. "Karan has asked her to get on board as a formal assistant and then eventually direct a film," the source adds.
Shakun Batra, the director of EMAET says, "There were at least five scenes where Kareena felt her character Riana was similar to Geet in Jab We Met.
She marked those in the script and suggested how we could change them. Throughout the film's making, Kareena was full of sensible, intelligent suggestions."
