Eeeeep!!! Looks like Bebo is coming to Pakistani cinema. Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor is set to star in acclaimed Pakistani director Shoaib Mansoor ’s next film.
According to Mid-day, the actor will travel to Dubai next week to meet Shoaib Mansoor for a formal script narration and to sign the contract for his next film.
The industry was abuzz with rumours about the collaboration since some time but now it’s official as Kareena’s spokesperson has confirmed the news.
A few months ago, Shoaib 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 told Mid-day.
“Although Kareena has verbally accepted the offer, she wants to hear the script. After 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 [she] believes that Mansoor’s story is one of them,” the source added.
Earlier, it was reported that Kareena is a huge fan of Shoaib Mansoor and had said, “I really want to work with him. He has made some fantastic content driven films and is a wonderful filmmaker.”
