Is Kareena Kapoor upset with Shahrukh Khan?
From the things Bebo said while promoting Bodyguard, we certainly think so
Kareena Kapoor hasn’t said it openly yet, but it seems she is not happy with her RA.One producer and co-star, Shahrukh Khan. First she goes around claiming that she doesn’t belong to any camp – she is friendly with Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shahrukh, and will work with all of them. Then she openly claims her role in Bodyguard is far better than her role in RA.One. When both are completely different films, there is no need to come up with such statements, even if it’s just because you are promoting one film and not another, no! What will she do when it’s time for her to promote RA.One? In the latest incident, she was part of a function honouring real-life bodyguards of our B-town actors. She claimed they were all bodyguards of the heroes she’s worked with. So she felicitated bodyguards of Saif Ali Khan, Aamir, Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan. None of this surprised us, but what we did raise our eyebrows at was the fact that she also felicitated Amitabh Bachchan’s bodyguard. Now we know the Kapoors and the Bachchans are just cordial with each other at best, something that happened after Abhishek and Karisma’s engagement broke off. As are the Bachchans and Salman, because of the Ash-Sallu jhamela. So was AB’s man part of the event because of the producers Reliance Entertainment’s close ties with the Bachchans? Salman didn’t have a say? And if that was the case, then why wasn’t Shahrukh’s bodyguard felicitated? SRK is Kareena’s onscreen hero too. When quizzed about it, Bebo said, “I don’t know the exact reason. I am sure Reliance would have asked him too and maybe Shahrukh was busy and his bodyguard was with him, but I really don’t know the exact reason. In fact, we should give Shahrukh’s bodyguard a round of applause.” Very diplomatic, KK. But we wonder if a certain Ms Chopra’s cameo in RA.One – added on the behest of King Khan – had anything to do with it.
