Producer Pritish Nandy and director Saket Chowdhury offered the heroine role to Kareena Kapoor opposite Akshay Kumar in their film “Shaadi Ke Side Effects 2”, the sequel of the Mallika-Rahul Bose-starrer “Pyaar Ke Side Effects”.
However, Kareena Kapoor rejected the offer as she was angry with certain comments made by Pritish Nandy against her. He wrote in his block that Kareena was a joke in the film “Kambakkht Ishq”. In fact Kareena’s beau Saif Ali Khan is said to have strongly advised her not to act in any film produced by Pritish Nandy in future.
The producer then approached Katrina Kaif and she has signed up the film. The film “Shaadi Ke Side Effects 2” is now going on floors with Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead.
