Ever since Kareena Kapoor Khan greenlighted a project with Farhan Akhtar as her co-star for a film coproduced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan, speculation has been rife that the film, directed by Dev Benegal, is based on poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi and Bebo would be playing Amrita Pritam, the late Sahir sahab’s love interest. However, Farhan categorically denied that his film with Bebo was a biopic on Sahir.
“I’m not doing any biopic at this point,” he said. Sources tell us that the film actually has Kareena playing an actress. She also played one in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine. In her current assignment, she falls in love with Farhan, who reportedly plays a contract killer. Ritesh confirmed that Bebo is indeed playing an actress but refused to divulge more.
