If all goes well, Kareena Kapoor's dream of working with Aamir Khan might just come true. Last week, she was approached by Rajkumar Hirani to act opposite Aamir in Idiots. Says a source, "Kareena has always been very keen to work with Aamir and Rajkumar Hirani.
Last time, Aamir and Bebo were to work in Mani Ratnam's Lajjo but the film got scrapped. But now, it seems Kareena may just be working with Aamir. Last week, Kareena and Raju had a hush-hush meeting where he narrated her the script of Idiots. Kareena is very excited about it."
The source adds, "Though Kajol is telling people that she hasn't read Raju's film and will consider the film after she reads the script. It's a fact that when Raju found out that she had poked fun at him by asking Shahrukh Khan who Hirani was and if he was any good as a director,he felt extremely insulted. He decided to take the script to Kareena who has evinced a keen interest but is trying to work out the dates."
A source close to Kareena confirms the meeting, "Yes. Its true that Bebo had a closed-door meeting with Raju about Idiots but it's premature to talk about it. Kareena has loved the Munnabhai films and is very keen to work with Raju.
Kareena is a busy actress who has signed more than five big films this year including Sajid Nadiadwala's Kambakht Ishq opposite Akshay Kumar and has a huge deal with TV18. If the film with Aamir happens, it will be the cherry on the cake for Kareena." Idiots is based on Chetan Bhagat's Five Point Someone and deals with the story of three IIT students. Hirani has also approached John Abraham, Shahrukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan for other roles in the film.
