It's confirmed! Kareena Kapoor will star opposite Salman Khan in
brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri's next project, a remake of the
Malayalam hit Bodyguard. There was speculation that
Katrina Kaif would essay the lead role, but Atul clarifies, "See,
we have already decided to release our film during the Eid week
next year. Since Katrina has committed her dates to other projects,
we decided to cast an actor whose dates would match with Salman's
and would facilitate the release of the film during the festive
week next year."
However, this combo - Salman and Kareena - hasn't delivered a
Hit in the past. "It all depends on the film and how the audience
takes to it. Why blame a pair for its failure? Besides, they may be
third time lucky with my film," Atul smiles. Meanwhile, Atul is
keen on calling his film Bodyguard, not My Love
Story or Meri Love Story. Directed by Siddique, the
film has music by Pritam.
