The makers of the film claimed that the film would be made on Rs.20 crores budget. It is inspired by the real life love story of Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, and would be based mostly on the media reports. It will also include the infamous MMS clip showing Shahid and Kareena kissing. Another incident where Kareena snubbed Saif's sister Soha Ali Khan will be there too.
The makers of the film have cleverly twisted the names of the protagonists as Karina, Saifee and Shaheed to avoid controversies. They also revealed that the Saifee's character in the film would be a mix of Salman Khan and Saif's personalities, with traces of Salman's violent love stories with his ex-girlfriends Somi Ali and Aishwarya Rai (now Aishwarya Bachchan).
The cast of the film is yet to be finalised though its makers are ready to start shooting next month. Actress Shradha Sharma was approached for the role but she turned it down. She said that she doesn't want to offend Kareena Kapoor. Moreover, she is uncomfortable with a particular scene where Shaheed has to cut his wrists for the actress.
However, it looks unlikely that the proposed film The Secret Life of Karina will ever see the light of the day, as making plots out of big stars' real life incidents means inviting trouble.
Salman"s spokesperson Alok Mathur said that the production house would get into real trouble if they openly claim that the character is that of Salman. He added that they are using Salman's name to get publicity. Shahid Kapoor"s spokesperson also said that the news hasn't reached Shahid. He added that he would not be bothered by the news, as all they (producers) want is nothing publicity. However, Saif and Kareena were not available for comment.
It may be recalled that Shahid-Kareena were one of the most-talked-about couples in Bollywood at one point of time. They made their affair public from the very start and didn't shy away from showing their affection even in public, which often landed them in trouble. They went on steadily until Saif entered Kareena's life.
What followed was Kareena dumping Shahid, her boyfriend of over four years, for Saif. She fell in love with Saif while shooting for Tashan. Since then, Shahid has been linked with many actresses including Vidya Balan, Amrita Rao and Priyanka Chopra but he has not made any of his relationships public.
Well, Saif-Katrina-Shahid love triangle would surely make a good film, provided the makers of the film get permission from the persons concerned.
