We all know how Kareena Kapoor Khan had stepped up to do Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’ after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan suddenly announced her pregnancy and had to walk out of the project.
Aishwarya hiding her pregnancy from the producers was termed as a breach of contract and now that our Bebo is expecting her first child, she wanted to play safe from the start. While the world came to know only recently, Kareena was open about it with her ‘Veere Di Wedding’ producers Ekta Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor.
So when Rhea and Ekta met Kareena for the dates, she informed them that she was expecting, but still wanted to do the film. Expressed by Kareena’s honesty, the makers preponed the shoot of the film to suit Kareena’s schedule. A source tells DNA, “Ekta and Rhea decided to still go on floors with Bebo. They were pleased with Bebo’s honesty and since Kareena and Sonam’s pairing would be the biggest highlight of the chick flick, they didn’t want to change the cast. They preponed the shoot to August, so that they could wrap the film before Kareena’s delivery in December.”
A thorough professional, we say.
