The Singham Returns actress was in talks with Ekta Kapoor to feature in the film...
Kareena Kapoor Khan was almost roped in by Ekta Kapoor to play the leading lady in the Mohammad Azharuddin biopic. Bebo was to play the role of Sangeeta Bijlani in the biopic. But now reports suggest that Bebo has refused the offer to star in the movie.
Kareena's decision to turn down the film has upset Ekta and we hear that the two aren't on talking terms anymore. The reason behind Kareena turning down the film is believed to be her proximity with her Bajrangi Bhaijaan co-star, Salman Khan who used to be in a relationship with Ms Bijlani. The actor continues to share a good rapport with his ex and Bebo too is good friends with Sangeeta. It is believed that she didn't want to jeopardize her friendship with Salman or Sangeeta by playing the latter in the Azharuddin biopic.
In 1994, rumours suggested that Mohammad Azharuddin was having an extra marital affair with Bijlani. The biopic of this celebrated cricketer will sure be all kinds of controversial.
