The Hindi remake of Anushka’s Arundathi was on cards for quite some time now. There were early rumours that Anushka will herself reprise the role from the original. However, it did not materialize. Gemeni Film Circuit who are well known for remaking Bollywood movies in Telugu are planning to remake this movie in Hindi. They have screen tested several heroines like Katrina Kaif, Rani Mukherjee and others and finally opted to go with Kareena.
Off late, Kareena has been highly concentrating on heroine oriented movies. She is reportedly watching the movie in DVD and is in great admiration for Anushka’s acting. She even wants to meet Anushka in person to get some tips from her.
