Kareena Kapoor Khan is one Bollywood diva who has shown a perfect balance between motherhood and her career. Not only the actress has worked extra hard on her career after giving birth to Taimur, she now signed two important films. All credit goes to her successful role in ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
Let us tell you that the actress has signed two big Bollywood movies with Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan this year. Kareena will be starring opposite Shah Rukh Khan in an upcoming film titled ‘Salute’. This film is going to be a biopic of astronaut Rakesh Sharma (the first and only Indian to travel to space in a Soviet rocket).
The film will be directed by Mahesh Mathai and produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur. When Kareena was asked about the film earlier, she mentioned:
“Whatever film I choose, I will let everyone know but at the right time.”
She will be playing Madhu, the astronaut’s wife in ‘Salute’. The other film Kareena has signed is going to be home production by Karan Johar. Both Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor were last seen in the film ‘Ra.One’ (2011) and before that in ‘Aśoka’ (2001).
As per a source:
“In a film, various issues including remuneration and dates need to be worked out first before an announcement is made. And Kareena and Shah Rukh coming together after Ra.One is very big news. But now everything has been sorted, the deal has been finalised and Kareena is doing Salute where she plays Madhu who is an interior designer by profession and astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s (played by Shah Rukh) wife. Kareena loved the story and is excited to be working with Shah Rukh again.”
Let us also tell you that Rakesh Sharma’s role was previously offered to Aamir Khan, however, he rejected the project.
