Emraan was excited to work with Kareena

Bollywood queen Kareena Kapoor had refused to take up movie starring Emraan Hashmi and being produced by Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar.

But Emraan was excited to work with Kareena, so excited that he even arranged for a special screening of Shanghai for the actress. But Emraan was quite disappointed by the news that Deepika is replacing Kareena.

“Everyone thought Kareena would fit the bill. She was sent the script, which she liked, but she wasn’t able to sort out her dates for the film. Finally, the role went to Deepika Padukone. Kareena loved Shanghai and was interested in working with Emraan. But she couldn’t arrange her dates alongside Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next. Post her wedding in October, she will start shooting for the second schedule of the film”
