The actress was approached to essay the role of Ranveer Singh’s sister in the film. The project was initially planned with Ranbir Kapoor -- the reason why Bebo agreed to play his sibling in the film as they are first cousins. But with Ranbir out and Ranveer in, Bebo does not apparently want to be part of a project.
Says a source, “When Zoya began writing the script, she thought of getting Kareena and Ranbir together in the film. Kareena was extremely excited to play his screen sister. But with a change of plan, she is having second thoughts now.”
Adds the source, “The project is presently in the scripting stage and Zoya has already sounded off the actress.”
It therefore looks like Ranveer’s dream of working with Kareena will take a while. They were earlier slated to work together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela. Bebo had opted out of the project citing date issues after which Deepika Padukone was pencilled in.
It appears that for Zoya’s film too she will apparently pull out the date issue card.
Kareena remained unavailable for comment.
