Kareena at work - with senior, junior Kapoors
By Subhash K. Jha, IANS
Mumbai, Jan 6 Besides their surnames, what's common to Anil Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor? Kareena Kapoor!
While Anil, the senior Kapoor, co-stars with her in "Bewafaa", Shahid, the youngest Kapoor entrant, is all set to play the lead with Kareena in a Ken Ghosh film. That's not all.
Kareena and Shahid are also in a Boney Kapoor project to be directed by Satish Kaushik.
"I'm only 23. There aren't too many leading ladies who suit me," explains Shahid.
Sudhir Mishra's "Chameli" looks good enough to win all the art house accolades this year. Kareena is a special revelation in the film.
Rahul Bose can't stop marvelling at how she has grown during the two months of shooting.
"With every schedule she has surprised everyone, except perhaps herself. Before every shot she'd be her normal friendly self, talking, joking and messaging. The minute the camera switches on she transforms," Rahul says.
During the final lap of "Chameli", Rahul and Kareena performed some very difficult dramatic scenes. There was a stunned silence on the sets after every shot.
"Will I get the awards? I don't know. God willing, yes. But you can't give a performance for the awards. It's like having a baby to come first in class," Kareena says.
She is also working for Govind Nihalani's "Dev" where she comes face to face with the mighty Amitabh Bachchan.
Kareena has regretfully backed out of Rituparno Ghosh's quickie with Ajay Devgan in November.
"The dates that Ritu wanted clashed with Mani Rathnam and Govind Nihalani. I tried. But I couldn't reshuffle the dates since they involved someone as busy as Bachchan."
Mani Rathnam is so pleased with Kareena's performance in "Yuva" that he has decided to add two songs to her character. The way things are going it looks like the Tamil version of "Yuva" will be complete before the Hindi one.
Madhavan, who plays the slightly negative part (done by Abhishek in Hindi), is all praise for Esha Deol. "She's so full of life and a real surprise on the sets. We've all kind of adopted her on the sets."
