Sita Writer Vijayendra Prasad Vehemently Denies Kareena Was Offered The Part 5

 The marketing gimmicks  to  keep stars  in  the  news are  now crossing all limits. Almost every  other day we  have  one Bollywood actor or another in the  news for being offered  a role, and  the  next day  for rejecting it.

Kareena Kapoor Khan is  a stunning woman  and a fabulous actress. Does she  need this kind of  publicity?
