Shahid vs Saif: Kareena and her warring lovers

Former beau Shahid Kapoor and current lover Saif Ali Khan avoid bumping into each other while shooting at Mehboob Studios

When couples in B-Town break-up, they usually do everything in their power to avoid bumping into each other. Not surprising then, they don't want their new lovers to run into their exes either.

Like in the case of Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor. Kareena Kapoor's present and past avoided each other despite shooting on adjacent floors at Mehboob Studios in Bandra recently.

"Saif was shooting for a shoe brand that he and Bebo endorse, while Shahid was doing a magazine shoot with his dad Pankaj Kapoor.

Their vanity vans were parked barely a few meters away, so it was up to their staff to ensure that they don't come face to face with each other, " informs our source who was present there.

Shahid was the first to arrive. "He had to shoot a couple of changes with his dad and his bike. So he was moving a lot between his van and the studio room he was shooting in, " says our source, adding that it was the same with Saif as he was shooting six changes.

Fortunately, for their respective crews, the two actors didn't meet even once. Both, however, didn't seem too perturbed about running into each other.

"Saif and Shahid were too preoccupied with their shoot to be bothered about the other, " points our source.
Shahid steers clear of Sallu

Interestingly, Saif Ali Khan wasn't the only actor Shahid Kapoor didn't want to meet. Salman Khan was also at the same studio doing promotional interviews for Bodyguard.

Differences between Salman and Shahid arose during their Rock Stars tour some years ago, post which the former doesn't acknowledge the latter's presence.

Kareena not keen to work with Shahid

Kareena Kapoor strongly recommending Imran Khan for Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai sequel (HitList, 27 Aug) seems to be a clear message to Shahid Kapoor.

She's not keen to work with him even though he has been approached to play the role parallel to Akshay Kumar in the Milan Luthria film for Balaji Motion Pictures.


Kareena wants Imran to play Chhota Rajan

Impressed by the young Khan, Kareena Kapoor is pushing director Milan Luthria to cast him in her next romcom, the sequel of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 

If closed-door talks at Balaji Motion Pictures are an indication, then Shahid Kapoor won't feature in the sequel of Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, the film based on the underworld.

It is learnt that Kareena Kapoor is rooting for Imran Khan, her co-star in Short Term Shaadi, to play the character inspired by Chhota Rajan.

Interestingly, Kareena herself isn't being paired with Imran in the Milan Luthria directed movie, as she has already confirmed to pair with Akshay Kumar, who plays the role of a don, inspired by Dawood Ibrahim.

According to an insider associated with the film, "Kareena feels that Imran would bring novelty to the character inspired by Rajan. More so because he has played strong romantic roles in most of his films."

Besides that, an insider told us that working in the project, Short Term Shaadi, Kareena is enthused about how well she gets along with the co-actor.

"That's also one reason why she's so strongly recommending Imran's for this movie, " said our source.

Now, the actor will have take a call when the producers approach him. However, our source maintained that producer Ekta Kapoor is also backing Kareena's suggestion to director Milan Luthria.

"But it's still some time before they connect with Imran, as currently Milan is focused on finishing the last schedule for The Dirty Picture, for Ekta's company. In another week or two, talks should be initiated, " said our source.

When contacted, Tanuj Garg, CEO Balaji Motion Pictures said, "It's still too early to talk about the parallel male lead. When things are finalised, we'll make a formal announcement."
