Mumbai: The much-hyped Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer ‘Lajjo’, which was initially shelved due to budget constraints, will be revived. The film that revolves around times of the partition is one of the most ambitious projects by filmmaker Mani Ratnam.
Earlier set aside over money issues, the filmmakers are keen to revive the project after watching the audiences’ response to the sizzling chemistry between Aamir-Kareena in ‘3 Idiots’.
As per reports, the project had kicked off on a large scale after songs had been written by Gulzar and composed by AR Rahman. But after the filmmakers ascertained the budget for a partition film, they realised the film was going to be way more expensive than they had initially planned.
However, now Mani Ratnam is much too excited about the project and has decided to go ahead with it before he begins his film with Ranbir Kapoor.
Talking about her role in the film, Kareena said, “I will be too happy. Giggly, girlie, Barbie doll roles don’t bring out the actor in me. I want to be challenged. I can’t play the singing, dancing mannequin any more. I’ve realised that as an actor, playing varied roles is what I enjoy the most. I’m starving for good roles. My characters in Ra.One and Saif’s home production Agent Vinod are powerful roles.”
