For her next film, Kareena Kapoor has signed on to star opposite Akshay Kumar in a film titled Kambakht Ishq. The film is being produced under Sajid Nadiadwala’s banner and will be directed by Saabir Khan. As the title suggests it will be a romance that will have both comedy and drama.
Bebo said, “This is the first film that I have signed after Jab We Met, so you can understand how much I loved the script. It’s a great role and I’ve wanting to working with Sajid for a long time. I am also looking forward to working with Akshay again after Tashan. This is my fifth film with Akshay and we have always shared a wonderful chemistry on screen.”
Nadiadwala has been looking for the perfect heroine to fill this role for three months and is very excited that Kareena has signed onto the project. “I am happy that Kareena and I will be working together for the first time. She suits the role perfectly.
My director Saabir and I, both saw Jab We Met and loved it. It was a difficult role the transition from the first half of being a vivacious extrovert to the second half where she withdraws into herself but Kareena did a great job. Kambakht Ishq is a romantic drama with comedy in it.”
The film will be shot entirely on location in Los Angles and goes to the floor in January of next year. “We will take nine actors from Hollywood studios in Kambakht Ishq and it will be an international love story on a big scale,” Sajid said.
