Koffee With Karan 8 continues. Kareena Kapoor Khan and Alia Bhatt are the guests in the fourth episode of the show. This episode is in discussion because Kareena talks about her hatred for Ameesha Patel. Apart from this, many are talking about Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Kareena and Bhansali have an old thing. Bhansali cast Kareena in a film. Kareena herself left the second film. Kareena also vowed that she would never work with Bhansali in her career. But now he is ready to do the film in SLB.
Alia Bhatt recently worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’. He made another film with her. Maybe Ranveer Singh starrer ‘Baiju Bawra’. But his co-guest Kareena has a history with Bhansali. Karan asks Kareena that Aishwarya, Deepika and Alia, all three have worked with Bhansali. Who will Kareena rate more in this actor’s collaboration? To this Kareena said-
“I still have a chance to work with him.”
(I still have a chance to work with him)
In this, Karan took a dig at Kareena’s past statements and said-
“Okay! You’re on the line.”
This whole mess started during the making of ‘Devdas’. Bhansali first cast Kareena in this film. He also had a photoshoot etc. But at the last moment, Bhansali dropped Kareena from the film and cast Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the role of Paro. After this incident, Kareena said in an interview that she was never interested in playing the role of Paro. Because at that time he was too young to play that character. According to Kareena, Bhansali insisted and cast her in ‘Devdas’. He said that Kareena is a perfect fit for the role of Paro. The photoshoot is over. Then they took her and threw Aishwarya. Kareena also said that even if she is at the worst stage of her career and Bhansali is a top director, she still won’t work with him.
However, the two will work together in ‘Ram Leela’. This film is made with Ranveer Singh and Kareena Kapoor. But Kareena left the film 10 days before the shooting. After this he said in an interview that Bhansali is a ‘nobody’. Kareena also said that Bhansali is following her in film after film. But he was a very confused director. And he is not a man who sticks to his words. After that, Sanjay Leela Bhansali will make ‘Bajirao Mastani’. His first choice for this film was Salman and Aishwarya. But due to personal reasons Aishwarya refused to work with Salman. After this, Bhansali wants to do a film with Kareena and Salman. But then that film is not possible. In 2015, he did that film with Ranveer, Deepika and Priyanka.
After all this, as Kareena said on ‘Koffee with Karan’, it seems she wants to work with Bhansali. Maybe because Bhansali’s films are starting to do well now. Also the female characters in his films are strong. Like he did ‘Gangubai…’. Now doing ‘Heera Mandi’. Both are women-centered projects.
Kareena Kapoor was last seen in a film named ‘Jaane Jaan’. In the coming days, he will be seen in films like ‘The Buckingham Murders’, ‘The Crew’ and ‘Singham Again’.
