January 22, 2011 (Sampurn Wire): Kareena Kapoor has reportedly replaced Priyanka Chopra in the forth coming flick Dostana 2 where she is cast opposite Abhishek Bachchan. Priyanka who was earlier cast for the project has reportedly lost it out to Kareena Kapoor.
Kareena Kapoor had debuted with Bachchan junior in 2000 in JP Duttas 'Refugee', where she sashayed the role of a village belle.
After that she had developed inhibitions to work with Abhishek Bachchan due to her sister Karisma Kapoors broken relationship with him.
However now since things have cooled down considerably with Abhishek happily married and Karisma settled into her own world, Kareena and Abhishek have again decided to give their careers a different path and shed all inhibitions for professional reasons.
Reports doing the rounds suggest that the two are also going to be paired in another flick which will be directed by Abbas Mastaan. Kareena Kapoor has earlier worked with the directors in 2001 in the flick Ajnabi with Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol and Bipasha Basu in pivotal roles.
Kareena Kapoor appeared in a whole load of movies after that with films like Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai, Asoka, Yaadein, Khusi, Mein Prem Ki Deewani Hun etc. But she was recognized for her talent after she appeared as the oh...So stylish Poo in KJOs Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and then her very strong role in 'Chameli' as the prostitute where she won the Filmfare award for Special Award. She also won a Film fare award for her role in Omkara.
Kareenas super hit films like 'Jab We Met' and '3 Idiots' followed by the recent 'Golmaal 3' success has made her one of the topmost actresses in Bollywood.
Her forthcoming films are RA.ONE opposite Shahrukh Khan and Agent Vinod opposite Saif Ali Khan.
