Real reason why Kareena was asked to leave ‘Ram Leela’.

We all know that Kareena Kapoor was Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s original choice for ‘Ram Leela’. However, Bebo’s decision to tie the knot to her boyfriend Saif Ali Khan, before the film going on floors, made Bansali replace her.

In a press statement, Bhansali said he did not want a married woman as his Juliet in the film. Oh! By the way, ‘Ram Leela’ is inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Well, by “married woman”, Bhansali meant he did not want his heroin pregnant, during the movie’s filming.

Reportedly, he even talked to Kareena about this and asked her to sign a contract with a no-pregnancy clause. The actress refused.

“The bone of contention between Bebo and Bhansali wasn’t the money, as is being speculated in the media. It is reportedly the pregnancy clause that Bebo refused to sign,” a source told.

Deepika Padukone has now been confirmed to play Bhansali’s Juliet in the film.

Kareena and Saif Ali Khan are getting married in October.

    Deepika will look fabulous in this role. Just saw her photos at the recent GQ event. Unbelievably beautiful. Bebo is attractive too, but not as breathtaking.

    So you don’t like to include anything unflattering about Kareena? Sad.

      This site plays favouritism to certain actors. They have deleted a lot of negative comments about certain stars (like Kareena) & yet leave many negative comments posted about others. I notice that they always make Kareena sound like she can do no wrong even when her movies flop. It seems freedom of speech is only for those who have positive things to say about Celebden’s favourite stars. So many good & honest comments keep getting deleted from this site within 48hrs. If people don’t like her nasty, narcissistic, rude attitude based on HER words & HER OWN behaviour, then let the fans speak freely!

    Kareena is a good actress and so is Deepika. I suspect Deepika will produce the sultriest of leading girls in Ram Leela. She is utterly lovely.

    Yes, Deepika. I believe, is the better choice. Her natural yet stunning beauty would be perfect for the role.

    Good for the film… First of all, Kareena is not that young to play “Juliet” who was only 14 years old, second – she is a bad actress and has a negative aura aroubd her, drama is not for Kareena – she loves herself too much to portray love for anyone else realistically. Deepika is a MUCH better choice as she is more beautiful, fresh, lively and positive.

      OMG, very well said! I could not agree with you more! She would have brought the film down if she was in it. I’m shocked that SLB cast her in the first place – I thought he was smarter than that. She is narcissistic and rude towards other actresses (like Priyanka) who are better than her. She truly does have a negative aura about her. I don’t know why some film makers can’t see that. She’s not as bankable as SHE claims she is. I’m excited to see Deepika paired with Ranveer.
