Kareena Kapoor to reprise her character as Poo? Details inside
Lucknow: Regarded as one of the most versatile actors of the Bolly-land, Kareena Kapoor Khan has portrayed several iconic characers be it ‘Geet’ from Jab-we-Met to Sudhir Mishra and Anant Balani’s Chameli. But Poo a.k.a Pooja from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham is undoubtedly one of her most iconic characters till date.
And now we hear that, Dharma Productions, which bankrolled the latter film, is working on bringing the character back to life.
Although this time, for the web platform and not for the silver screen. And naturally, they are hoping to cast the same actress to reprise the role.
“It is true that Kareena’s name has come up in the discussions in the production house, but one is not too sure if Kareena would pick up a web-series to do. Saif Ali Khan’s show Sacred Games is doing well and Kareena is aware of that. The makers are hoping that with biggies like Akshay Kumar also getting entangled in the world of web-series, Kareena may follow suit. After all, she has opened up to doing radio as well,” says a source in the trade.
The character of Poo became famous because of the way she loved herself, her attitude and her sexy yet sanskaari behaviour made the character more iconic. Although there were big stars in K3G right from Amitabh Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol to Hrithik Roshan, Kareena won the audience with her charm.
On work front, Kareena will next be seen in the Karan Johar’s ‘Takht’.
