Shahid Kapoor-Kareena Kapoor in a comedy film?


Prime VIP

A casting coup in the making

It would be a casting coup of the most unexpected type. Remember how Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor avoided shooting together for the patch work of their much delayed and now flopped film Milenge Milenge?

It’s clear that the two ex lovers have been avoiding each other like swine flu. But now, if things go as planned director Siddharth Malhotra whose first film We Are Family opened at theatres this Thursday might bring the two exes together.

Siddharth had originally planned his second film with Kajol. But since the actress will be on a maternity break from work for about a year and a half, the director has penned another script, a father-daughter comedy.

Siddharth hopes to rope in Rishi Kapoor and his niece Kareena as father and daughter in the film. For the romantic angle (with Kareena obviously) the director might rope in Shahid who is his very good friend.

“I was the Associate Director of 'Vivah'. Shahid and I have been close since then. Now we're even closer. I really value his judgement,” Malhotra is quoted as saying by a news agency.

Malhtora added that he will approach Shahid for the role only after getting the script approved from Karan Johar whom he calls his ‘guru’.
