As per the latest buzz, Saif Ali Khan’s wifey was offered the role of the detective before Vidya Balan grabbed it. But Bebo said no to the project. Read on to find out why…
Just a few days ago, we caught hold of Vidya Balan’s look in Bobby Jasoos – the actor surprised us again, this time with her very convincing beggar avatar. But if Kareena Kapoor Khan was in Vidya’s place, do you think the Begum could have pulled off the far-from-glam look? Not really, hai na? So the story is true that the Gori Tere Pyaar Mein actor was approached to do the role but rejected the film, we are glad. But isn’t Kareena turning down all the good projects she gets? First she backed off from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela and now Dia Mirza’s Bobby Jasoos, which does look interesting.
While we aren’t sure why Saif Ali Khan’s lady didn’t accept the film – the story of the adventures of a young detective – a little birdie chirps, “She (Kareena) heard the script from producer Dia Mirza. She didn’t feel there was anything interesting in the film for her to do, so she turned it down.” Guess KKK’s definition of ‘interesting’ is quite different from VB’s, no?
Also, if Bobby Jasoos becomes a hit, we won’t be surprised if Bebo takes away the credit for its success from Vidya. After all, she is the only actress who can boast about ‘giving’ films to other heroines, remember?
