Kareena Kapoor, who is in news for walking out of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela, is likely to play the role of Indian prime minister in the sequel to Prakash Jha's political thriller opposite Ajay Devgn.
According to a source: "Kareena Kapoor will be seen playing a female Prime Minister of India in Prakash Jha's political sequel. The film is expected to go on the floors by the end of the year and apparently it was Ajay who suggested that Kareena should play the role. Prakash Jha immediately agreed and after Omkara it will be her first major performance-oriented role where she would also be de-glamorised."
The sources further said that Bebo is excited to don the avatar of a politician.
"Prakash Jha and Kareena have already spoken. The necessary formalities need to be worked out. For this role, she is all set to do some major research and has already asked her team to shortlist the names of all major female prime ministers all across the world. She will then do research about their lives and their mannerisms. She does not want her glamorous image to overshadow her performance in the film," added the source.
