Although rumours were rife that Prabhu Deva was all set to bring back the successful Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif pairing for his upcoming film, Singh Is Bling۪, the most recent news suggests otherwise. Apparently, the producers of the film are keen to sign Kareena Kapoor Khan as Kumar۪s leading lady.
Kareena has been approached to play the main lead… For the first time, Prabhu Deva has written a script which has a meaty role for the heroine. Usually in his films, the actresses have little to do but this one is different. He is keen to have Kareena play the part because it needs a performer and not just a glamazon. Prabhu Deva feels that Kareena is one of the finest actresses we have today, a source revealed to DNA India.
The director himself did not deny the possibility of Kareena Kapoor Khan being cast in the film. It۪s the producers call. They will announce who is the actress in due course, he told DNA India, making one wonder if his own call would be to sign Katrina Kaif as rumoured, or his favourite Sonakshi Sinha.
An official announcement is expected later this month and the film is slated to release in July 2015.
