Kareena Kapoor Khan breaks self-imposed no-kissing rule for Ki and Ka

Kareena Kapoor Khan breaks self-imposed no-kissing rule for Ki and Ka
Yes, you've seen it right. That is Kareena Kapoor puckering up with Arjun Kapoor for the poster of R Balki's Ki & Ka. Hadn't Kareena said no to on-screen kissing after her marriage? When offered Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani she made it very clear at the outset that she "can't do all that with Ranveer" now that she is the Begum of the Pataudi khandaan. In fact in Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, Kareena's one intimate sequence with Ajay Devgn had to be drastically reduced.

Now we see Kareena happily puckering up with her co-star Arjun Kapoor.

So what gives?

Director R Balki shrugs off all suggestions of special concessions from the dignified diva. "Kareena and Arjun play husband and wife in my film. So what do husband and wives do? They show affection with a kiss, right? How else should Kareena and Arjun behave while playing man and wife?

Is Kareena Kapoor Khan going to be billed a guest in Bajrangi Bhaijaan
Is Kareena Kapoor Khan getting insecure about her career? Is she willing to take on any and every part that comes her way, provided the role is opposite a hot-and-happening superstar? Sources close to the Eid blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan claim Kareena has a negligible part in the film. Says a member of the film's core team, "The actual leading lady of Bajrangi Bhaijaan is the little girl Harshaali Malhotra. Bebo is not there for more than 10-15 minutes. The core drama of the film is about Salman's character and the little girl who journey together from India to Pakistan. If there is a third character who is important, it is Nawazuddin Siddiqui who accompanies Salman and the girl." Apparently, Kareena's role is brief enough to qualify as a "guest appearance" in Bajrangi Bhaijaan. However, Amar Butala COO of Salman Khan Films negates the same saying, "Kareena Kapoor has a very

Deepak Dobriyal plays Arvind Kejriwal

Deepak Dobriyal plays Arvind Kejriwal
After Ajay Devgn who played him in Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, it is the very talented Deepak Dobriyal who is all set to be seen in a role closely modelled on Arvind Kejriwal. In a political satire entitled Lollypop Since 1947, Dobriyal has been cast as an aam aadmi who becomes a political force to reckon with. Says Dobriyal, "I play a salesman who becomes a member of parliament. It's a role that every supporter of Kejriwalji would immediately recognize." Dobriyal who went through a ghastly eye accident last year says the role required immense preparation especially since it's directed by a member of a political family. "It's directed by Anirudh Chautala who is the former Haryana Chief Minister Devi Lal's grandson. Says Dobriyal, "The film has a very clear wake-up message for the masses.

  • Bollyspice
10. Chitrangada Singh (I, Me Aur Main)

Beginning her career as a model in Delhi, Chitrangada Singh made her debut on the Bollywood screen with Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi (2005). Her performance as Geeta Rao, firstly a student caught up against volatile political and social issues in India and then a woman who chooses to be with the man she loves, rather than her husband, had won her critical acclaim.

The year 2013 saw Chitrangada as Anushka Lal opposite John Abraham in I, Me Aur Main (Dir. Kapil Sharma). Playing the role of a girlfriend who is frustrated at her boyfriend Ishaan for the lack of responsibilities and maturity he shows, Chitrangada gauged the conflicting emotions gracefully. She emotively portrayed the fine balance between assertiveness and her broken feelings.
