When Shahid Kapoor thought of Kareena and not Alia for Udta Punjab


Shahid Kapoor had first thought of his former girlfriend Kareena Kapoor when he was narrated the story of his upcoming movie Udta Punjab.

According to the 35-year-old actress’ Twitter page @KareenaOnline, when Sasha was narrated the film, he “thought of Kareena even before Alia,” as he felt “she was just perfect for the role.”

Last time both Shahid and Kareena were seen together was in Imtiaz Ali directed ‘Jab We Met,’ when they dated each other. Later on, they couple split.

Bebo, went on to marry Saif Ali Khan, while Shahid too tied the knot with a Delhi girl Mira Rajput.

Although the former couple will be seen together in Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Udta Punjab,’ they will not be acting opposite each other.

According to ANI, the trailer of the movie was launched at Mumbai, in presence of the whole star cast, yesterday, where they not only avoided standing beside each other, but also tried to avoid questions on each other.

When they were asked about again being paired opposite each other, the ‘Ki and Ka’ actress promptly answered, “DVD of ‘ Jab We Met’ is always available.”

Interestingly, ‘ Udta Punjab’ will see not a single scene of this former couple together. When asked about it, the ‘Haider’ actor said, “You are asking if we are happy or not on something that has already been done before.”

Shahid will also be seen with his former girlfriend’s husband Saif Ali Khan in Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming film ‘ Rangoon.’
