Koffee with Karan: Did Anurag Kashyap take a dig at Kareena Kapoor Khan?

It is not a hidden fact that right from Sanjay Leela Bhansali to Rakesh Roshan, Kareena Kapoor Khan has turned down many-a-good directors by rejecting their ambitious film projects. Needless to say, those rejected film offers were quickly grabbed by her contemporaries who turned them into gold by their midas touch (read: Deepika Padukone in Ram-leela).

Of course, being too picky has put Kareena several notches down from the topmost heroine slot. So much so that now even Bebo's best buddy – Karan Johar – has been allegedly looking beyond her to sign heroines for his upcoming projects (Shuddhi).

Now, going by what filmmaker Anurag Kashyap said about Bebo during his appearance on the chat show Koffee with Karan, we wonder whether the film industry is abuzz with Kareena’s infamous habit of choosing films for herself.

How, you ask? Well, here it goes.

During the rapid fire round, Anurag was asked by KJo to give out advice to popular celebs, and one of those celebs happened to be Kareena. To her Anurag’s reply was, “Next time you should not ask who is in the film, you should ask what is the film (about).”

This clearly means that Kareena has a (fatal) tendency to only to sign films with A-listers – something not gone down well with the off-beat and new age film makers who have aspired to work with her. We must say that after the debacle of Gori Tere Pyaar Mein and Satyagraha, Bebo should try expanding her horizons a tad more, and think beyond the likes of KJo and the Chopras, if she wants to stay in the business.
