Kareena Kapoor is excited about sharing screen space with Farhan Akhtar in Bombay Samurai

Kareena Kapoor’s career seems to be heading to an exciting new level with Dev Benegal’s film Bombay Samurai .

Post-marriage, she seemed to flounder in her choices with her half-hearted crusader’s role in Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha and the totally inane social activist’s role in Gori Tere Pyaar Mein . With Bombay Samurai , Kareena finally seems to have got her work formula right.

According to sources, the film has “seven to eight pivotal characters. But Kareena and Farhan (Akhtar) preside over the show. They play a couple who are wacky and unpredictable.”

Says Farhan: “I’ve seen Kareena’s work. She is consistently excellent. I was keen to work with her. Dev’s film gives us a chance to try something different.”

Kareena expressed the highest admiration for Farhan: “I admire Farhan for being multi-talented. Which other director has done so well as an actor? Farhan took my breath away in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag .”

The Farhan-Kareena film starts after Kareena’s annual holiday in Switzerland in December.

Incidentally, she goes on this annual Christmas-New Year holiday in Switzerland without fail every year with Saif Ali Khan.
