Over the years, Abhishek Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor have been quite vociferous about not wanting to work together after his marriage to Karisma Kapoor was called off, but things are beginning to change, reports Mumbai Mirror.
Kareena and Abhishek have now agreed to star together in a film after six years.
Mumbai Mirror reports, the two have been signed for Abbas Mustan's untitled film, a remake of the Hollywood film, Italian Job. The movie will also star Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh in lead roles.
Initially talks were on with Saif Ali Khan but he did not have dates and Abhishek Bachchan replaced him.
Abhishek and Kareena will appear together on screen for the first time since 2003 when the film Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon featured both of them.
Both actors made their acting debut together in Refugee and have been in the industry for years but have only starred together in two films till date.
Kareena's manager Zahid denies that she has signed the film, but a source close to Abbas Mustan says, “The directors always had Kareena in mind and now they have managed to get Katrina on board too. The film will go on the floors in April and like every Abbas Mustan film, this too will also be shot on a lavish budget at international locations. The directors are clear about who they want to cast in the film.”
The Italian Job (2003) rights are with Studio 18. CEO Sandeep Bhargava of Studio 18 says, “We have the rights of Italian Job. Abbas Mustan are working on the script and will also direct the film. The movie will go on the floors sometime next year.”
When asked about the star cast, Bhargava says, “We can't approach any actors till the script is ready.”
