Mumbai: Although Kareena Kapoor has walked out of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Ram Leela’and and Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai 2’, the Bollywood super star is all set to become the Prime Minister of India in Prakash Jha’s next film “Raajneeti 2.”
Previously, “Raajneeti” portrayed Katrina Kaif as a Politician but now Kapoor will be picking up where she left off, pairing opposite Ajay Devgan. This will be her second film with Devgan after ‘Omkara’.
A source informs, “Kareena Kapoor will be seen playing a female Prime Minister of India in Prakash Jha’s political sequel. The film is expected to go on the floors by the end of the year and apparently it was Ajay who suggested that Kareena should play the role. Jha immediately agreed and after Omkara it will be her first major performance-oriented role where she would also be de-glamorised.”
The source says that Kareena is excited to don the avatar of a politician. “Jha and Kareena have spoken. The necessary formalities need to be worked out. For this role, she is all set to do some major research and has already asked her team to shortlist the names of all major female prime ministers all across the world. She will then do research about their lives and their mannerisms. She does not want her glamorous image to overshadow her performance in the film,” says the source.
