Kareena turns down item number offer for KJo’s ‘Agneepath’
Mumbai: Everybody is aware that Karan Johar is coming up with an action flick starring Hrithik Roshan which apparently is a re-make of Bollywood blockbuster ‘Agneepath’. Now, to add a dash of glamour KJo approached the ultimate diva Kareena Kapoor for an item number in the film, but surprisingly, Bebo refused the offer!
There was a buzz in the town as to which actress KJo would prefer for the sensuous number that happens in the villain Kancha Cheena’s (played by Sanjay Dutt) den. One would recall that that Farhan Akhtar opted for Kareena to replay the veteran item queen Helen in his version of ‘Don’ earlier, when she danced to ‘Yeh Mera Dil’ with Shah Rukh Khan, and which went on to become a super hit number.
Taking cue from the past, Karan Johar and ‘Agneepath’ director Karan Malhotra asked to Kareena to groove for their remake of ‘Agneepath’, but the actress turned her back.
Later a source revealed, “It was a tough call for Kareena. She certainly didn’t want to refuse KJo who is a very close friend. But she did.”
Incidentally, this happens to be the second time Kareena has refused an offer from the filmmaker. KJo had approached Kareena for the lead role in the 2003 film ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’.
