Looks like Ranveer Singh’s dream of working with Kareena Kapoor will take a while to come true! Ranveer and Kareena were first roped in together to act in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela but Bebo had opted out of the project citing date issues after which Deepika Padukone was pencilled in.
Recently, news have been doing rounds that Kareena Kapoor was approached to essay the role of Ranveer’s sister in Zoya Akhtar’s next film. However, 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 since Ranbir opted out and Ranveer Singh was signed instead, Bebo does not apparently want to be part of the project anymore.
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.”
Looks like even for Zoya’s film, Kareena will be pulling out the date issue card !
