Months after she was rumoured to have demanded a big amount to portray the role of Sita in a movie, Kareena Kapoor Khan talked about it and about the cases. She has said that she was never offered the movie in the first place.
Kareena was rumoured to have hiked her fees, and demanded ₹12 crores for portraying the role of Sita in Ramayan. A Bollywood Hungama report had claimed last year that Kareena prior charged ₹6-8 crore yet she increased her fees for the movie. It was said that the movie would take up many months of work for Kareena, hence she demanded a big amount.
Asked about Ramayana and how the topic of pay disparity was twisted into something different, because of brutal trolling, Kareena told Zoom, “The reason I never gave an explanation is because I was never offered that film. I don’t even know why I was put into that because I wasn’t the choice for the film. These all are made-up stories and I don’t want to put anybody down because maybe even they need stories. Every day people are looking for some sort of stories on Instagram but I don’t know where it came from.”
Kareena is presently preparing up for the release of Laal Singh Chaddha, which features Aamir Khan in the titular role of Laal, while she portrays the role of Rupa in the movie. Mona Singh portrays s Aamir’s onscreen mom in Laal Singh Chaddha which is helmed by Advait Chauhan.
