Mumbai: Yes you read it right! Both 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 CenturyIndia, and eventually
became the ruler ofSardhana, a small principality
nearMeerut. Later on, she played a key role in the political
power struggle in 18th and 19th century India.
