Kareena ousts Deepika in Saif’s production venture

Nov 30, -0001
It took much coaxing and lavish gifts from Chhote Nawab Saif Ali Khan to comfort the apple of his eye Kareena the first time he took Deepika Padukone in the lead role for his debut, yet unnamed production flick.

The actor turned producer, who got Deepika on board with a heavy heart, has decided to go easy on himself for his next venture ‘Agent Vinod’ for he has replaced Dips with - believe it or not - Kareena.

Yes, when you are shelling crores for a film you are allowed to meddle with castings and a lot more.

According to the grapevine, Saif had to muster much courage the first time director Imtiaz Ali demanded Deepika to play instead of Kareena for Saif’s first home production. Besdies facing Bebo’s rage, the actor had to ward off media inquires about the same.

But looks like Saif does not have the heart to refuse his real life leading lady Kareena twice. The actor, who had earlier zeroed upon Deepika for his next production venture ‘Agent Vinod’, has now had a change of heart as he has gone for his love instead.

Speaking to a news daily, director Sriram Raghavan confirmed the news, "Kareena and Saif will play the lead roles. The rest of the cast will be finalised by December 10."
