Kareena Kapoor may have said no to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela, but she's more than made up for that loss by saying yes to playing the Prime Minister in Prakash Jha's sequel to Raajneeti.
She will be paired with Ajay Devgn in the film. Reports claim it was Ajay himself who suggested Kareena's name.
The film is expected to go on floors by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, Kareena plans to get her hands dusty doing lots of research. It's been reported that Kareena has asked her team to shortlist "the names of all the major female prime ministers across the world. She will be researching their lives and their mannerisms."
After Omkara, this could be a major performance-oriented role where she will also shed her glamorous image.
