Mumbai: Salman and Kareena’s last outing ‘Main Aurr Mrs Khanna’ might have sinked without a trace, but this certainly does not dampen the spirits of the actress for she will be starring opposite Salman once again, after his ‘Dabangg’ hit jackpot at the Box Office.

Buzz has it that Salman’s sister Alvira and her husband – one time actor Atul Agnihotri have signed the actress in their film ‘Bodyguard’. The film will be directed by Siddique from Kerala, who also directed its original version.

The movie which goes on the floor in December will be Salman-centric with some powerful female performance. Talking to a news daily, Atul said, "When we saw the original version done by Nayantara, we were convinced that only Bebo could do the Hindi version."

When enquired on the rumours whether Katrina was also chosen for the female lead, Atul cleared the air and said, "When a film is being launched, producers go through the thought-process of which of the top three actresses can one cast. We also thought about who was best suited to Salman bhai in this film. But we hadn`t approached anyone. As I said, we were convinced from the start that Bebo would be the best choice."

While Atul and Alvira will be the producers for ‘Bodyguard’, Pritam will be the music director for the same.
