If the recent buzz is to be believed, R Balki's next centres on no typical household as the rom-com is about a gender reversal of stereotypes. Here it seems, Bebo will be the one saying ''Honey, I'm home'' after a long day at work while Arjun, who's mostly seen in intense roles, plays a dutiful ''house husband''.
When speaking about the characters, a source revealed to DNA, ''In Abhishek Choubey’s Udta Punjab, which Kareena wraps up this week, has her looking completely Indian, Punjabi to be more specific… salwar-kameez, jet-black hair, kohl-laden eyes, loud prints, etc. She goes for a complete 360-degree turn in her appearance for Balki’s film. The latter will be a metro-centric character, with no hint of Indian clothes. Kareena will be dressed in chic, subtle executive suits, as she plays a hotshot head honcho of a corporate firm. Manish Mahotra will do all of her clothes for Balki’s as-yet untitled film.”
“She will colour her hair a chic auburn shade. Balki chose Bebo for the film because he wanted an actress with killer looks who would look convincing as a hot-shot working woman. She fits the bill perfectly,” says the source. Balki’s film begins shooting on the 1st of August this year.
