Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan has by no means labored with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, however she got here shut a number of occasions. She dropped out of Goliyon Ki Raas Leela – Ram Leela a mere 10 days earlier than capturing was supposed to start, leaving Bhansali ‘shocked’. But this was after they’d fallen out and patched up after she was changed in Devdas.
Kareena had achieved a glance take a look at for the sweeping romance movie, which finally starred Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit reverse Shah Rukh Khan. And she was actually not happy after she was omitted. In an offended interview with Filmfare on the time, Kareena referred to as Bhansali a ‘confused director’ and vowed to by no means work with him once more, even when her profession was down within the dumps and he’d grow to be the ‘next Raj Kapoor or Guru Dutt’.
The two patched up at Sikander Kher’s celebration after Kirron Kher performed mediator. Kareena advised Filmfare in 2002, “She dragged me to him. We hugged and became friends. I told him I was hurt because he screen-tested me for Devdas and then replaced me without my knowledge. But I’ve never ever said that he’s a bad director or that I’ll never work with him. The media just blew our differences out of proportion. You know I was like a child who wanted to be in his film. He was the first filmmaker I ever called. Anyway, Devdas is certainly not the last film he’ll make. He owes me a solo-heroine film.”
Things have turned out effectively for each Kareena and Bhansali since Devdas, which was launched in 2002. Kareena is now among the many highest-paid feminine stars within the trade, whereas Bhansali not too long ago delivered one of many largest Hindi hits of the 12 months, Alia Bhatt-starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi.
