Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is riding high on the howling success of her recent female-buddy film ‘Veere Di Wedding’ (2018), has multiple offers in her hand at the moment. However, she has made it very clear that she will be taking up only one project a year as she wants to spend most of her time with her little bundle of joy, Taimur Ali Khan. A couple of months ago, rumours were floating around that the diva has been approached to pair up opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Aditya Roy Kapur’s space odyssey film ‘Salute’. The movie is a biopic based on the inspirational life of astronaut Rakesh Sharma, who was the first Indian to travel in space. The makers have always remained tight-lipped about the actress’ presence in the big-ticket flick. But now it seems the right time has come to officially announce her name.
According to latest reports, the ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ (2001) actress has given her verbal nod to the project and she will sign it on the dotted line soon. If reports turn out to be true, ‘Salute’ will mark her reunion with superstar Shah Rukh Khan after a huge gap of 7 years. Both popular actors were last seen together in Anubhav Sinha’s sci-fi movie ‘Ra. One’, which hit the marquee in 2011.
If reports are to be believed, Kareena has been roped in to play the character of Rakesh Sharma’s wife Madhu, who is an interior designer by profession. Currently, the makers are busy finalizing the dates and remuneration with the actress. Once everything is locked, the movie is expected to mount the shooting floor in September this year.
Besides ‘Salute’, Kareena Kapoor Khan is also rumoured to be doing a Dharma Productions’ movie with superstar Akshay Kumar.
