Kareena Kapoor’s revenge!
They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Now, Abhishek Bachchan is at the receiving end of Kareena Kapoor’s anger. Earlier we heard that Abhishek Bachchan had refused to work with Kareena Kapoor in a Karan Johar production mainly because she’s Karisma Kapoor’s sister. Now we hear that it’s Kareena’s turn to reject Abhishek. She has refused a film with Jr Bachchan.
The story goes that Apoorva Lakhia, who is planning his next film with Abhishek, is a tad surprised by Kareena turning down the plum offer. Apparently, Abhishek had given his assent to the film despite knowing that Lakhia was keen on roping in Kareena for the film. But Kareena begged out of the film saying that she is uncomfortable working with Abhishek. A source close to Apoorva says, “Apoorva was very keen on having Kareena in the film. But she refused to do the film because of Abhishek’s presence in it.”
If sources are to be believed, the producers were looking at a patch-up between Bebo and Abhishek. The film is going on the floors at the end of this year. Ever since his break-up with Kareena’s sister Karisma, Abhishek has maintained a distance from Karisma’s immediate family. Although Abhishek was good friends with Kareena he made his anti-Kapoor stand very clear at a lot of events later.
Sources close to Kareena blame Abhishek for their friendship going sour. Reportedly Kareena has even made attempts to patch up with the unrelenting Bachchans. But she was irritated when Abhishek opted out of films whenever any producer considered her for a role opposite him.
Says a source close to Kareena, “After Refugee and Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon, lots of producers have been trying to cast them together. But, Abhishek has seen to it that Kareena is never a part of any film that he works in.”
However, when quizzed about the Abhishek-Kareena tiff, Apoorva Lakhia simply said, “I can’t finish one film where do I have time for anything else?”
However, our sources insist that the producers are now talking to a bunch of other female actors for a role opposite Abhishek.
