Mumbai: A book on Bollywood’s sexiest woman by India’s most acclaimed writer is sure to create interest. Grapevine has it that celebrated author Shobhaa De is planning a book on industry’s hottest celeb Kareena Kapoor, and that Bebo has giver her green signal for the venture.
If sources are to be believed, Bebo and De have met several times in the past six months to discuss the details and work on it. Sources inform that over the several discussions that Bebo had with Shobhaa, it was decided that the book will be on her, and not exactly on her life.
“It will be on the lines of an acclaimed book based on Victoria Beckham. The book will trace how Kareena Kapoor became the brand Kareena Kapoor... how she became a name to reckon with from just being Lolo’s (Karisma Kapoor) sister,” the source added.
It has also been known that De will not be writing the book entirely, she will be the master planner and the publisher. “Another writer is also on board along with Shobhaa, and some more might follow.

Kapoor had previously written forewords for her dietician Rujuta Diwekar’s books.
“The book will talk about her sense of style, her influences, her idols and how she has become a name in Bollywood to reckon with. It’s a little different from a biography in the strict sense of the term,” the source confirmed.
Kareena also confirmed that she is in talks with De for a book on her but didn’t like to go into the details. “At this stage, it is too early to discuss (the book being written on her). We will surely discuss it at an appropriate time,” she said.
