3 releases in 12 months…Kareena Kapoor Khan is on a roll!

In a couple of interviews she has given in the recent times, Kareena Kapoor Khan has reiterated the fact that she is making a conscious effort towards doing films which are based on unconventional subjects or themes which have not been explored before. Though she did films like ‘Chameli’ (2003), ‘Dev’ (2004) and ‘Omkara’ (2006), among others at an early stage in her career, she veered more towards mainstream, commercial cinema. Some of her recent films like ‘Ki & Ka’ (2016), ‘Udta Punjab’ (2017) and ‘Veere Di Wedding’ (2018) were commercial films but were unique in terms of the subject they were touching upon. Her choices clearly reflected the fact that at this stage of her career in which she prefers to do one film at a time, she is willing to experiment with offbeat subjects.

‘Good Newwz’, her new film which releases next week, deals with a rather unique subject – sperm exchange. The two trailers of the film have got a very good response and now, one looks forward to see the kind of response this quirky comedy, which also have a strong emotional base to it, gets when it opens in theatres next week.

Next year, she has a brief but important role in ‘Angrezi Medium’ and then, she will be seen opposite Aamir Khan in his home production ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. These are commercial films but aim to tell a story that has never been told before. While ‘Angrezi Medium’ is expected to deliver a message while keeping the entertainment quotient intact, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is an official remake of the English film ‘Forrest Gump’ in which Aamir along with director Advait Chandan (‘Secret Superstar’) is expected to weave in some Indian elements and present the story in a fresh way.

With her current slate of films, it is evident that Kareena is willing to experiment more and more with fresh subjects and roles while keeping the commercial considerations in mind. With ‘Good Newwz’, ‘Angrezi Medium’ and ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ releasing within a span of 12 months, her fans are in for a treat!
