Kareena set to reinvent herself with Dev Benegal film 'Bombay Samurai'
Kareena Kapoor now (Kapoor Khan) is a powerhouse of talent, but post marriage her role choices have been far from inspiring. In Satyagraha and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, she was sincere but both films sank without a trace. Now though, with a new Dev Bengal film on the anvil, Bombay Samurai, Bebo may just be back on track and doing something worthy of her stature.
According to sources, the film is "a crazy zany rollicking roller coaster ride with amazing twists and turns. There are seven to eight pivotal characters. But Kareena and Farhan (Akhtar) preside over the show".
"They play a couple like no other seen before in our films. They are wacky and unpredictable. The two actors will have a ball playing their outgoing zestful characters," the source added.
Both Kareena and Farhan were keen to work with one another.
Says Farhan: "I've seen Kareena's work. She is consistently excellent. I was keen to work with her. Dev's film gives us a chance to try something different."
Kareena expressed the highest admiration for Farhan: "I admire Farhan for being multi-talented. Which other director has done so well as an actor? Farhan took my breath away in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. I am really looking forward to working with him."
The Farhan-Kareena film starts after Kareena's annual holiday in Switzerland in December.
Incidentally, she goes on this annual Christmas-New Year holiday in Switzerland without fail every year with husband Saif Ali Khan. Well we for one, can't wait for this and the hugely touted Shuddhi which reunites her with Hrithik Roshan and hope the actress recovers lost ground after the two duds mentioned in this article.
