Bollywood superstar Kareena Kapoor Khan along with boxing champion MC Mary Kom, designer Masaba Gupta, entrepreneur Vineeta Singh, and journalist Faye D-Souza have come together to amplify the Women's Premier League (WPL) urging everyone to join the biggest ladies' night. In a video shared on Instagram, the women partnered with global sports brand PUMA and emphasised that cricket is everyone's game.

The post read, "Only 18% of the women who watch men's cricket, watch our women play. Ladies, we need you to come together and change these numbers. It's time to celebrate our girls like never before. Join us for the biggest ladies' night ever on Sunday, 10th March at the Arun Jaitley Stadium as the Delhi Capitals take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Let's make it a night to remember."

Meanwhile, on the film front, Kareena will be seen in the film 'Crew' with Tabu and Kriti Sanon. Singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh and comedy king Kapil Sharma have a special cameo in the film.

'Crew' is the story of three women and is touted as a laugh-riot, set against the backdrop of the struggling airline industry. However, their destinies lead to some unwarranted situations, and they get caught in a web of lies.

In the film, Tabu, Kareena, and Kriti are donning the role of "bada''" air hostess. From stealing peanut boxes meant for flights to planning to earn a lot of money and raising the glam quotient, the trio has been doing everything to grab eyeballs. The teaser begins with a voiceover by Tabu, where she warns the passengers that it is going to be too extreme for them to handle. The highlight of the teaser shows Tabu hilariously hurling abuses.

The film is made under Balaji Telefilms and Anil Kapoor Film & Communications Network banners. The film will hit theatres on March 29, 2024. It is directed by Rajesh Krishnan.

Besides that, Kareena also has 'The Buckingham Murders'. It will see her don the producer's hat for the first time as well. The film is a crime thriller directed by Hansal Mehta. She will also return to Rohit Shetty's cop universe with 'Singham Again'.
