Kareena Kapoor ’s unavailability of dates for movie ‘Dhruv’ is giving maverick director Sudhir Mishra sleepless nights. Now the question is whether Bebo will continue with the project or not.

Sudhir, once excited to get a casting coup like Farhan Akhtar and Kareena Kapoor for his political drama ‘Dhruv’, is now petrified as Bebo has no dates for the film. Her allotted dates are clashing with the dates of Saif Ali Khan ’s movie Agent Vinod . And no prizes for guessing whom Bebo would choose given a choice between Mishra and her beau.

Kareena’s dates have reportedly gone haywire because of the ongoing strike in the film industry. Saif has to postpone the release of Love Aaj Kal and this has further affected the shooting schedule of his much-planned spy thriller ‘Agent Vinod’. Now Kareena’s dates for Dhruv are clashing with her beau’s movie.



Sudhir has earlier directed Kareena as a prostitute in Chameli that had one of Bebo’s best performances till now. He plans to begin shooting ‘Dhruv’ from mid-September but before that he would have to ensure dates from Bebo.


According to Farhan, whose company is producing the film, Kareena’s role is “a role to die for”. And Sudhir was reported as saying that he can’t imagine anyone else playing that role. According to him ‘Dhruv’ has two heroes — Farhan and Kareena. And Kareena gets to play “a combination of Paro in Devdas, and Lady Macbeth.”

Now the ball is in Kareena’s court. Will she do the film, or she won’t!
