Kareena Kapoor is an actress who has proven once again that marriage and motherhood has absolutely zero impact on a Bollywood actress’s career. There have been reports of Kareena starring opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Salute, the biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma( the only Indian to ever travel to space), directed by Mahesh Mathai and produced by Ronnie Screwwala and Siddharth Roy Kapur.
When quizzed about it the actress has told the media earlier, “Whatever film I choose I will let everyone know but at the right time.”
This will be the second movie Kareena Kapoor Khan has signed after Veere Di Wedding this year. SRK and Kareena will be working together after seven years. They had last acted together as husband and wife in Ra.One(2011) which they will repeat in this film. Kareena will play the role of Shah Rukh’s(Rakesh Sharma) wife, Madhu in the film. Kareena loved the story and is excited to be working with Shah Rukh again.
Salute is a film which Aamir Khan opted out of, making way for Shah Rukh. With Aamir opting out of Salute, it remains to be seen whether the movie will become another milestone in Shah Rukh’s career.
Post Ra.One there were reports of a fallout between Shah Rukh and Kareena which neither had admitted nor denied. But a buzz started spreading when Kareena was among few Bollywood celebrities who didn’t attend the launch of Shah Rukh’s wife Gauri’s new interior design store in Mumbai. The reason behind their fallout was speculated by some as that she had not promoted Ra.One as much as she should have because she had reserved for her then fiancé Saif Ali Khan’s home production Agent Vinod. Many had felt at that time that Shah Rukh would never work with the actress again but it seems that finally things have been cleared between them with the unofficial finalising of the film now. So we can expect a formal announcement on the movie anytime soon.
