WHAT? Kareena Kapoor Asked Rhea Kapoor To Cast 10 Years Younger Actress Than Her In Veere Di Wedding

Now that’s a revelation, isn’t it? Kareena Kapoor spilled the beans on how the conversation followed when she called Veer Di Wedding director, Rhea Kapoor to inform that she is pregnant, a few months before the shoot was about to commence...
Kareena Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor kick-start the first reading session of Veere Di Wedding today. Of course, Begum Pataudi is mighty excited for her second innings but equally nervous too. 


In an interview with Mumbai Mirror Kareena revealed, “I am a new mother who wants to work. I am reading scripts but I am scared of being away from Taimur,”

All set to begin the shooting of the film in September in Delhi, Kareena goes back to the time she got pregnant and called Rhea to share the news, “She stood by the film through thick and thin. Picture this, you have money, a script, time and your heroine calls you up to tell you that she is pregnant.”

Kareena also revealed that at one point of time she even suggested Rhea to not compromise on her time and money and go ahead with an actress 10 years younger to her, “Rhea reworked her script to add the pregnancy angle (which was eventually dropped), even though I told her to just go ahead with an actress 10 years younger. At a time when producers drop an older actress for no particular reason, Rhea, who is a woman of gumption, courage and conviction, told me that the film was all about women and there was no way she was going ahead without me,”

Well, now that’s a difficult call to make but we’re glad Rhea supported Kareena during her important phase.

An excited Kareena also revealed a bit of Veere Di Wedding’s plot, “I’m possessive about my friends and this film reflects that side of me. It’s the story of four girls who attend my wedding and all the dhamaal that it involves. It showcases women and their emotions. It’s the right time to do this kind of a film.”

Well, we don’t know how Rhea would react to Kareena disclosing her film’s plot, but the diva’s kind words for the filmmaker will surely bring a smile on Rhea’s face.
