There were reports yesterday that Kareena Kapoor, who is enacting the role of actress Mandakini in Once Upon a Time in Mumbai 2, would do a semi-nude act in the second instalment of the movie. But sources close to the film unit have revealed that she has refused to do such bold scenes.
Kareena Kapoor has turned down the director's wish to shoot famous waterfalls scenes of Ram Teri Ganga Maili, where Mandakini soaked under the waterfall with a transparent saree. Milind Luthria had plans of including the scene, as the dreaded don reportedly fell in love with the yesteryear actress after watching it on silver screen.
It may be recalled that Kareena Kapoor had recently refused to do intimate scenes and some bold acts in Madhur Bhandarkar's upcoming film Heroine. Later, the filmmaker was forced to drop some scenes.
However, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai sequel also features Akshay Kumar and Sonkashi Sinha in the leads. The movie is expected to take off in January 2012.
