Sajid Nadiadwala and Imtiaz Ali are keen to cast the two top stars in their new film
Would you like to see Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan in a film again? Their chemistry in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) was palpable, leading to rumour mills going madly abuzz about their torrid affair, even though Hrithik was dating Sussane at the time. After all, Bebo was the original choice to play Duggu’s heroine in Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai (2000), a film allegedly refused by her mom Babita since the Roshan lad was a novice. She preferred her daughter’s debut with Abhishek Bachchan in Refugee the same year. But it was natural that Kareena noticed Hrithik’s Greek god qualities. So film or no film, stage shows and the like happened with the two involved, and sparks reportedly flew. But after Hrithik got married in 2000 to Sussane, every spark naturally fizzled out. And it showed in their later films like Yaadein (2001), Mujhse Dosti Karoge! (2002) and Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon (2003). A much married Hrithik decided to never work with Kareena again. Filmmakers tried to get them together for a film, but to no avail. So much so that Kareena even refused to do an item number for Hrithik’s Agneepath remake, although it is a Karan Johar film and KJo is a ‘brother’ to Bebo. But she later admitted to a film mag that she wouldn’t mind working with Hrithik again. So directors are still trying to get them to act opposite each other. The latest buzz is that Sajid Nadiadwala wants to produce a film with the two beautiful people in the lead. The film will apparently be directed by Imtiaz Ali, as soon as he finishes filming Rockstar with Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. Hrithik, too, is busy with Agneepath and Krrish 2, while Kareena has Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, Once Upon a Time In Mumbaai sequel and Reema Kagti’s film with Aamir Khan after Bodyguard releases this Eid. But the question is, will Kareena finally say ‘yes’ to acting with her ex-beau (reportedly, of course)? And will Hrithik, father of two, go back to his (alleged) ex-flame? KJo couldn’t win them over for Agneepath, but maybe he can do it for the K3G sequel. Wot say, Mr J?
