Kareena Kapoor refuses to play the character of Mandakini

Just as we reported to you about Kareena Kapoor ready to play the character of former Bollywood actress Mandakini, we are again here to report about Bebo. Kareena did a swift U-turn and has refused to play the role in the sequel of Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. The film was to be directed by the director of Dirty Picture, Milan Luthria.
But what has put of Kareena Kapoor? Well, for those who don’t know this, here is a little background. The former Bollywood actress, Mandakini is specially remembered even today for the film Ram Teri Ganga Maili, which was a super hit film.
This meant that Kareena would have to do this popular scene, which is the heart of Ram Teri Ganga Maili. And indeed Kareena was required to do it. However, the director Milan Luthria had allowed Kareena to have her own take on the shot. He was okay even if Kareena did not go to that extent as what Mandakini did.
But the thought of wearing a see-through white saree and that too while getting wet in water, is what could have put Kareena off. Actually, Bebo was not comfortable doing these scenes. Maybe that’s why Kareena Kapoor withdrew from the film.
Incidentally, the film Ram Teri Ganga Maili was produced as well as directed by Kareena’s grandfather – the legendary Raj Kapoor.
