Although Kareena Kapoor’s career will have been rocked slightly by the damp squib of Main aur Mrs Khanna, she’s not one to crawl under a stone and hide there. Already, she’s looking for her next big project and rumours are rife that she might be included in either SRK’s superhero movie Ra.1 or perhaps Danny Boyle’s underworld adventure Bombay Velvet. However, nothing’s been signed yet, and in Bollywood nothing is secure until the blood is on the parchment.
Meanwhile, she’s hoping that her chemistry with Saif Ali Khan in Kurbaan will raise a cheer. Her kissy-kissy scene with Saif in the first half of the movie is said to have led to a few open mouths on set as it seemed to never end. The movie itself is about a terrorist who marries Bebo in order to give himself a cover story for an audacious raid. “Karan Johar came up with the line ‘Some love stories have blood on them,’” she says, “And that sums up what the movie is about, it is a love story set against the backdrop of terrorism.”
Following that, we can expect a mega-big-deal over her movie 3 Idiots with Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Sharman Joshi. Kareena has tagged it the film of the year, which must be a disappointment to Saif as his film comes out first, and a source from the set of 3 Idiots seems to confirm this, “Aamir is the star of the film indeed, but Sharman Joshi, Madhavan and, most importantly, Boman Irani shine throughout the film,” he says, “Kareena Kapoor is a breath of fresh air in the film. All actors are essaying the role of 20-25 year olds and are completely believable.”
