No doubt one of the top leading ladies of the new millennium, Kareena Kapoor Khan seems to be getting into the anything-goes zone. In the eagerly awaited Angrezi Medium her fans would be heartbroken to see Kareena Kapoor Khan in a very small role.
A source close to the project reveals, “Contrary to belief , Kareena Kapoor Khan isn’t playing the lead opposite Irrfan. He doesn’t have a leading lady in Angrezi Medium. Kareena Kapoor Khan plays a Pakistani cop in London who helps Irrfan. It is a role with little meat, probably the smallest part she has played in her career, not counting the guest appearance she did with Akshay Kumar in Gabbar Is Back.”
Apparently she agreed to do the role as the shooting coincided with her holiday in London.
“This is the flimsiest excuse we’ve heard for an actor taking the role,” sniggers the source.
Kareena Kapoor Khan had a hit last year in Good Newzz where she played a woman desperate to havea child with Akshay Kumar as her supportive spouse. After playing the lead one wonders why she would slip into the slippery realm of a cameo.
