Kareena Kapoor's comment on Surya has sparked a controversy down South. The actor's fans are upset with her after she said in an interview that she doesn't know who he is. They have found her statement as an insult and have expressed their anger on online platforms.
There were reports that Kareena Kapoor was doing an item number in Surya's forthcoming movie Anjaan. It was said that she was finally making her debut in Kollywood with this much-hyped film directed by N Linguswamy.
While clarifying those rumous, Kareena Kapoor claimed that she is not aware of Surya or Linguswamy and she is not doing an item number in Anjaan.
"I don't know where such baseless stories come from. I haven't signed any such film. I don't even know who Suriya and Linguswamy are. I've never seen them. I've zero interest in acting in non-Hindi films whether it is down South or in Hollywood," Kareena Kapoor was quoted saying.
Kareena Kapoor further added, "How can I emote in a language that I don't know? I was offered beautiful scripts by the late Rituparno Ghosh in Bengali. I never could bring myself to work with this brilliant filmmaker because of the language barrier, and now he is gone." Continue reading the story on the slideshow...
