These are really interesting times for cinema in the Indian subcontinent. While Bollywood has welcomed talented movie actors from across the border to feature in films, the reverse hasn't really happened as yet in a noticeable way.
Actors like Ali Zafar, Mikaal Zulfikar, Fawad Khan have already starred in Bollywood films and the audiences have loved them. Most recently actress Mahira Khan too has jumped the bandwagon and will soon be seen in a film opposite Shah Rukh Khan called Raees.
However, this gap in the exchange of artistes across the border will now be closed as one of Bollywood's A-list actresses could be signing a film in Pakistan.
Sources have revealed that the 35-year-old Kareena Kapoor will travel to Dubai next week to meet Pakistani director Shoaib Mansoor (of Khuda Ke Liye and Bol fame), for a formal script narration and to sign the contract, reports the Express Tribune. The rumours were confirmed by Kareen's spokesperson in a statement, reported an article in timesofindia.com.
The actress is already in Dubai at the moment with her Ki and Ka team in order to shoot for the film. So will Bebo sign the new film now or will she return later to talk about the project? Insiders revealed that Mansoor had e-mailed his concept to the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star and added that she liked the role, but wanted to hear the script before confirming. Kareena will be the first A-list actress to work in a Pakistani project.
