Bebo jumps off Chennai Express
The collaboration of Shah Rukh Khan and Rohit Shetty makes the soon-to-go-on-floors Chennai Express one of the ‘hottest’ films to watch out for. After a short period of indecision regarding the casting of either Katrina Kaif or Kareena Kapoor as the leading lady in the film, SRK’s RA.One heroine and Rohit’s favourite, Bebo had emerged victorious. In fact, the actress had even said in an interview, “Rohit and I are finalising the script and other details. Rohit is like family, and I am seriously looking forward to working with him again.” However, her enthusiasm regarding the project has been rather short-lived. Media has learnt that Kareena, once happy to be a part of the project, has excused herself from it. Reason: the usual ‘date problems.’
Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone, who has recently been in the news for leaving Race 2 producer Ramesh Taurani in a mess by walking out of the project midway, has been asked to come on board for Chennai Express.
A friend of Kareena confirmed that the actress is no longer a part of the film and added, “Kareena has already informed Rohit Shetty that she wouldn’t be able to work in Chennai Express. SRK is aware of it as well.”
As for Deepika’s inclusion in the film, a source close to the project said, “Deepika has given her nod to it. The official signing should happen soon.”
