Kareena Kapoor Khan is set to sign Pakistani director Shoaib Mansoor’s film, as reported by Mid-day.
The speculation of Shoaib Mansoor eyeing Bollywood ace film actress Kareena Kapoor Khan for his next film originated last month. The latest update tells that the duo are meeting in Dubai next week where Khan will listen to the script before formally locking the deal with the iconic director of critically acclaimed films Khuda Key Liye and Bol.
“A few months ago, Mansoor had e-mailed his concept to Kareena, saying that she will have a powerful role in the film. She liked the idea but wanted to read the script before giving her nod to the film. She will be the first A-list actress to work in a Pakistani project.”, a source closed to Khan told Mid-Day.
Khan had showed interest in working with Mansoor a couple of months ago. “I really want to work with him, he has made some fantastic content driven films and is a wonderful filmmaker,” the actress said about Mansoor.
Kareena Kapoor, while taking a break from the shooting of her next film Ki and Ka, is flying to the Emirates to meet the director. “Although Kareena has verbally accepted the offer, she wants to hear the script. Post that, she will sign the deal. For a while now, she has been keeping an eye out for projects that will allow her to push the envelope and believes that Mansoor’s story is one of them,” adds the Mid-Day’s source.
The development has not been confirmed by the sources close to Mansoor yet. We also don’t know about other details of the film. There is also a rumor, which Galaxy Lollywood learned from a bird, that the film will be directed by Mansoor but it might be a joint venture with some international company. Such rumors will keep surfacing until Mansoor or Khan formally announce the project.
Mid-day also revealed that the social media shy actress is finally joining micro-blogging network Twitter where she will disclose the deal by the end of this month.
It seems this exciting project is not far from being officially announced. We will keep you updated as we hear more about it.
