Kareena Kapoor and Vidya Balan are uncomfortable in doing bold scenes post marriage. Newly married Kareena and Vidya were offered Tigmanshu Dhulia's biopic Begum Samru, but both the heroines said no to Dhulia because of the film's hot and bold content.
Tigmanshu Dhulia told a leading daily that his film is set in the 1840s and will be based on a Hindi novel. He says that he wrote the script a few years ago. And is looking to rope in an international studio for the movie. Dhulia further added, "That will ensure I don't face any censor issues in terms of satellite rights. That being said, I did approach Kareena and Vidya but they weren't comfortable with the script."
Begum Samru is a historical character who started her career as a dancing girl in 18th Century India, and eventually became the ruler of Sardhana, a small principality near Meerut. Later on, she played a key role in the political power struggle in 18th and 19th century India.
