It has been known for quite a while now that director Kabir Khan will be reuniting with Salman Khan once again after Ek Tha Tiger۪ (2012). Although rumours were that the filmmaker was hoping to sign a fresh face opposite his superstar hero, it has now been confirmed that Kareena Kapoor Khan will be playing the female lead.
Divulging details on this highly awaited project, which has been titled Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kabir Khan told TNN, The film is unique for both Salman and me and has a larger-than-life background with a human story. It۪s a very important story in today۪s day and age and we are both very excited to start shooting it. While I have done three films with Katrina Kaif, I have always also admired Kareena and wanted to work with her. The film will be shot across many parts of India and we start shooting this November.
This comes as great news for fans of Kareena Kapoor Khan, as the actress has not got much else in her kitty post Rohit Shetty۪s Singham 2۪. She will be working with Salman Khan, who she considers her favourite co-star, after their 2011-blockbuster, Bodyguard۪.
