It seems like Kareena Kapoor is still not done with ex beau Shahid Kapoor. After dumping him almost a year a go Bebo is making sure that Shahid is never cast opposite her. Director Imtiaz Ali who had Kareena and Shahid in his hit Jab We Met wanted to cast the lead pair again in his coming movie. Kareena expressed her discomfort working with Shahid and asked Imtiaz to replace him with someone else. Akshay Kumar was offered the role and he happily accepted.
It may be recalled that not too long ago Kareena was upset with Imtiaz when he had cast Deepika Padukone opposite her beau Saif Ali Khan in his next movie. Saif wanted Imtiaz to cast Kareena but the director declined in what will be Saif's home production. To appease Kareena Imtiaz had promised to cast her in his next movie. It seems Kareena just doesn't want to be in the same frame as Shahid. On his part Shahid has time and again maintained that he has no issues working with Kareena.
