Before you start guessing, let me tell you, the answer is no one.
And thank goodness for that because we cannot, in a hundred years, imagine someone else playing Poo.
Team MissMalini recently caught up with Kareena Kapoor Khan and of all the things we chatted about, we obviously had to ask her who she would like to play Poo IF Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham 2.0 was ever made.
No, I think Poo is a character that can’t be replaced. It can’t be done again on screen. I think it was a first. You mentioned my unabashed film choices, this was one of them. No Indian actress had ever portrayed something like that on screen. You never see a vain girl take such pride in talking about herself like “Tumhara koi haq nahi banta ki tum itni khoobsurat lago”. It was such a bold character. I don’t think any Indian actor could think of doing it. It was ahead of its time because playing full of yourself can actually be negative but Poo is such a loved character. People kind of walked out of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham saying, “Oh God, I just want to be like Poo”. I think that character cannot be brought to life ever again. I don’t see anyone else playing Poo.
We 100% agree, Bebo! There’s absolutely no one else who can play the role as well as you did.
