It all began when lead actor Imran Khan and director Punit Malhotra described to NDTV how they were at the Begum's beck and call on set. "She bullied us a lot. Imran has a lot of pictures of me at her feet saying come on, please give the shot. Imran and me turned vegetarian on set because she'd eat vegetarian food and we had to as well," said Punit. Enforced vegetarianism? Oh, how dreadful.
But Bebo begs to differ.
"I had actually said when I had signed this film that I would bully Punit and Imran. I don't think anybody has bullied Kareena Kapoor the way these two have. No director in the history, ever in my entire career. I think that's why I have had so much fun," Kareena told NDTV.
It would take a brave man to bully a Kapoor of Bollywood's first family. That man, it appears, is Punit Malhotra.
"He's the only director in 13 years that I have called sir. Even though I have worked with Mani Ratnam, Raj Kumar Hirani and Karan Johar, I don't call anybody sir. Punit is the only director I called sir, but I call him sir with a lot of care and fondness," Kareena added.
What we really need to hear now is a comment from Kareena's husband Saif Ali Khan for a The End to this script.
Featuring Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan in the lead roles, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein will hit theaters on November 22.
