Kareena Kapoor’s line up of movies for 2014 were all in place until the movies she had agreed to be a part of didn’t take off for some or the other reason.
To start with, she opted out of ‘Shuddhi’ because Karan Johar went and secretly forwarded the script to Deepika without her knowledge. Moreover, due to Hrithik’s split with wife Sussane, he was unable to give concrete dates which led to further delay of the film. She had also agreed to be a part of Dev Benegal’s ‘Bombay Samurai’ but that too has now been postponed towards the end of the year. Apart from this, the only other film she had agreed was ‘Singham 2’ to be directed by Rohit Shetty.
Rohit Shetty wants to shoot the film nonstop without any break. To which Kareena gave an open window of 65 days so that he can shoot with her uninterrupted. Generally, actors juggle 2 films at a time bit for this one, not only Kareena but Ajay too has given bulk dates to the director.
