Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, who dated for several years, broke up just as the shooting of Jab We Met came to a close. That was the last project they worked together for, and although we did see them on the big screen for Milenge Milenge, that film was shot much before they parted ways. As a result, the two haven’t come together after breaking up.
However, as you now know, they will be starring in a film together – Udta Punjab. Fans of the two will be sad to know, though, that they aren’t going to be paired opposite each other, and might actually not even have scenes together. Still, it’s going to be interesting to see them collaborate for a project, if only as two actors – after all, Udta Punjab is pegged to be a very different kind of film.
In case you were wondering whether Shahid had any reservations about working with Kareena, then no, it seems like he doesn’t. In fact, he revealed in a recent interview that he was the one who recommended the actress for the role she eventually went on the bag!
I was the first to suggest that Kareena was perfect for this role. I respect her as an actress. I’m happy she is living a good life. So am I.
Shahid also went on to state that he isn’t really concerned about opening himself to awkward questions from the media by working with Kareena, because he’d already answered every question possible – and, as an actor, he’s had to find 20 different ways to answer the same question.
We would love to see Shahid and Kareena share screen space, because they were quite the on-screen couple back in the day. But either way, Udta Punjab is going to be something to look out for. The film is all set to go on floors in March, and we can’t wait to learn more about it as they begin shooting! What about you?
