Kareena Kapoor and Salman Khan to work together again in ‘Bodyguard’

Atul Agnihotri is making the remake of a Malyalam hit film ‘Bodyguard’,

The lead for the fillum will be brother in law Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor opposite him, which will be Directed by Siddique and the music will be given by Pritam.

First choice for this project was Katrina Kaif, but because of dates issue and Atul want to release the film in the Eid week next year, Kareena took the place of Katrina,

Atul Agnihotri said,

See, we have already decided to release our film during the Eid week next year. Since Katrina has committed her dates to other projects, we decided to cast an actor whose dates would match with Salman’s and would facilitate the release of the film during the festive week next year.

Salman and Kareena pair has never been hit till now, but this time it might as Dabangg has raised the hopes level atleast for salman Fans,

For this Atul said,

It all depends on the film and how the audience takes to it. Why blame a pair for its failure? Besides, they may be third time lucky with my film.

Well, Bodyguard might be just a working title for now, and it might become ‘My Love Story’ or ‘Meri Love Story’ later, or he might not change and keep ‘Bodyguard’.
