Chitrangada clashes with KareenaApril 11th, 2009 - 7:43 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Kareena Kapoor now has to compete with a totally different actress in one of her forthcoming films.
This is simply because the director she’s working with next- Sudhir Mishra has decided to cast Chitrangada in his movie ‘Dhruv’.
Farhan Akhtar is the male lead of the film and director Sudhir Mishra found it interesting enough to team up two different leading ladies- Chitrangada and Kareena.
He’s been saying: “Both, Kareena and Chitrangada are so different in beauty, talent and personality that I’ve conceived two dramatic sequences featuring them. In terms of their look, screen presence and the characters, Kareena and Chitrangada are poles apart.”
And he has solid reasons behind casting Chitrangada.
He’s added: “How do you explain the fact that the Aishwarya Rai Bachchan that you see in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s films is so special? Similarly, I instinctively understand Chitrangada’s skills and personality. I’ve been dying to cast her again after “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi’.”
And interestingly it’s not Kareena but the arty actress Chitrangada who goes glam in the film.
Reportedly she’s “pulling out all stops and portraying a wheeler-dealer on stilettos with not much on except the perfume and background music.”
He calls her role to be that of an escort and power-broker in politics, a very seductive and provocative role. While Chitrangada is a femme fatale of politics and the underworld, and sports a special look, Kareena is a plain politician.
The shooting begins on September 15 in Rajasthan and the styling of the two ladies is being decided upon.
But it’s not that Sudhir is not paying any attention on Kareena with whom he worked with on “Chameli’.
He’s added: “Kareena is a very special actress. Before I worked with her in “Chameli’ I had heard she was a difficult actress to work with. But she had surrendered completely to my vision, and stood in the rain for hours for the shooting. In this film too I can see her sharing a crackling chemistry with Farhan.”
Kareena or Chitrangada- it will be interesting to se who wins this battle Because no matter how much they deny, a battle is in the pipeline for sure. -Sampurn Media
