Mumbai, June 5 (): Bollywood actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Akshay Kumar have been roped in to play the lead roles in the film ‘Singh is Bling’, directed by ‘Prabhudheva’.
When Prabhudheva was asked whether Kareena would get a big chance in a movie where Akshay Kumar plays the main role, the director said usually all heroines in his films would have their own space in the plot. He questioned if Sonakshi Sinha in Rowdy Rathore or R… Rajkumar just appeared as a pretty doll. He himself answered no way and added that his films might be named after the hero of the film, but heroine has no reasons to complain. Prabhudheva assured Kareena Kapoor would not appear as an eye-candy in Singh Is Bling with Akshay Kumar.
Kareena Kapoor was on the edge of signing films with Bejoy Nambiar and Sujoy Ghosh (to play the title role of Durga Rani Singh). Few weeks ago, Kareena was offered the next untitled movie of Bejoy Nambiar made under the production of Vidhu Vinod Chopra, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar. Then, Sujoy Ghosh flew recently down to Goa to ask Kareena to play the lead role in his next project, Durga Rani. The role was offered earlier to Kangana Ranaut and Vidya Balan.
On Friday, Prabhudheva met Kareena Kapoor and had detailed about his movie, it looks like she liked what she heard and had accepted the offer.
Few sources say, Kareena Kapoor is currently working on Singham 2, and will soon take a call on her upcoming projects. They say all three films that have been offered to Kareena have a preferable role for her but they all would kick-start in the last quarter of this year. But, she would be able to pick only two out of three.
