Even though Kareena Kapoor is a super star and Lara Dutta is certainly looking good to be one, especially in her current innings when she has numerous exciting projects up her sleeves, it didn't require any persuading whatsoever to support Jackky Bhagnani for his debut venture KAL KISSNE DEKHA. Ready to lend a helping hand and ensuring that Jackky gains enough mileage due to their presence, both women consented immediately when Vashu Bhagnani approached them to perform in the country wide tour that the team of KAL KISSNE DEKHA has embarked upon.

'For both Kareena and Lara, Jackky is like a 'ghar ka bachcha'', says Vashu who is continuing to market and promote his film aggressively in spite of yet another move in the film's release date, 'Kareena has worked with me in one of her biggest hits ever, MUJHE KUCH KEHNA HAI as well as JEENA SIRF MERRE LIYE. With her sister Karisma too I have made COOLIE NO. 1, HERO NO. 1 and BIWI NO. 1. Somewhere down the line we have continued to share great relationship with each other, both personally as well as professionally. This is the reason why when I approached her to help in promoting Jackky and his film, she was game for it.'

How about Lara Dutta? Was she cool as well in the very first go?

'Absolutely yes', says Vashu in a proud tone, 'Even though Lara has worked with me in only one film [soon to be released DO KNOT DISTURB], we have known each other for 8-9 years. There was no hanky panky whatsoever. She just asked me when and where she is required to be present. That's the best part of this industry. There is such emotional bonding between people in spite of all the talks about professional rivalries and back biting. In the last few weeks, the way Kareena and Lara have lend me support, I have further gone on to realize that we folks are indeed one big family and the ties that are seen in Bollywood can't be evidenced elsewhere.'

Adds Jackky, 'I have known Lara and Kareena for so long but them supporting me for the promotion of my debut film has been an extraordinary affair. Frankly, I wasn't too sure how it all would turn out but dad always has belief in the people he works with. He was confident that no one would turn him away. Thankfully, this is what happened and both the ladies were sporty enough to accompany me for the tours. I can never ever forget what they have done for me.'

Meanwhile there continues to be uncertainty around the release of the movie after it was announced at the last minute that Vivek Sharma directed KAL KISSNE DEKHA won't eventually make it for the 29th May release. With the current stand off between producers and multiplexes failing to see any resolution, it is indeed a 'kal kissne dekha' moment for all involved with the movie.
