Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan has finally broken silence on the rumours of her contesting the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. At an event today in Mumbai, the actress rubbished all the reports claiming that she will be representing Congress party from Bhopal constituency in the upcoming general elections. Entertainment portal Pinkvilla quoted the actor saying, “There is no truth to these reports. I have not been approached for this whatsoever. My focus is and only will be movies.”
Earlier, a report in a leading news website said that a local Congress corporator Yogendra Singh Chauhan had suggested Kareena’s name to party chief Rahul Gandhi. The report mentioned a serious request was allegedly made in a letter sent to Gandhi to consider Kareena as the face of the party from the said constituency. However, seems like Bebo isn’t convinced with the idea.
Meanwhile, her next Hindi film, Good News, has been postponed. The Dharma Productions’ film, directed by Raj Mehta was earlier slated to hit the screens on January 21. However, the shoot of the film couldn’t begin as per schedule due to the date issues with the stars. Producer Karan Johar announced it’s going to be released on September 6 now. Good News features Akshay Kumar opposite Kareena in the lead. It also has Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh playing important roles. The film is the story of a couple trying to have a baby.
Revealing the reason behind the shoot delay, a source close to the actor told Times of India, “Akshay has given his dates from the last week of January. The entire crew, including Kareena Kapoor Khan, Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh will also be shooting in Mumbai for the second schedule of the film. He will join them on the sets around January 27. Akki and Bebo weren’t required for that schedule. The four of them will shoot their combination scenes now, whereas there will also be a third schedule featuring only the two main leads.”
