Umesh Shukla, director of OMG had troubles in the casting department for his next film. Bhushan Kumar-produced ‘Mere Apne’ has already acquired Abhishek Bachchan as it’s male lead but the female lead was something to ponder upon.
But according to recent reports, the director had contacted Kareena Kapoor for the role and after an hour-long discussion, Bebo seems very excited and is seriously looking forward for the project. A script-narration has been scheduled for the coming Monday.
If all goes as planned, we will witness Kareena Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan after a decade! Both the actors made their debut opposite each other in Refugee and have only worked once after that in Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon in 2003.
There were rumours that Abhishek Bachchan’s split with Karisma Kapoor had spoiled relations between the two families and they remained coy over working together again ever since.
Mere Apne also has Rishi Kapoor who plays the role of Abhishek’s dad. The movie is supposedly going to be shot in Himachal Pradesh, London and also Sikkim!
