Bollywood perfectionist Aamir Khan and India’s top actress Kareena Kapoor are in London shooting for Reema Kagti’s untitled film, produced by Farhan Akhtar and Riteish Sidhwani. The film also stars Rani Mukherji in a significant role however she is not part of this special schedule.
Starting today and for the next four days, the pair will be shooting a complicated scene. Complicated because the scene that is being shot is an underwater action sequence. A source close to Kapoor told us that the 31-year-old actress had shot the scene in Mumbai for a day, but due to several reasons the producers decided that it will be better to shoot the scene in a fully equipped underwater studio abroad. While Bankgok and Malasiya were considered for options, London was finalised as the actress was here for Ra.One promotions and her wax statue unveiling.
Speaking to Bollywood reporter Sunny Malik at Madame Tussauds in Blackpool, Kapoor said: “I can’t reveal anything about the film but I think, I am just very lucky to be working with Aamir Khan for the second time around. It is just a pleasure. We worked together in Three Idiots, and now in this film I have a very special and iconic role. The film will release on the 1st of June 2012. I am very excited about the release. The shoot is going to be underwater, but it’s a heated pool (laughs).”
Kareena Kapoor and Amir Khan will be shooting at an undisclosed studio in the UK for another four days.
