Surya Who? Asks Kareena Kapoor

An April fool’s prank on a popular website has angered Kareena Kapoor. When asked about the (fake) news item – about her doing an item number in Lingusamy’s Anjaan – the outspoken actress retorted, “I don’t know where such baseless stories come from. I haven’t signed any such film. I don’t even know who Suriya and Linguswamy are. I’ve never seen them. I have zero interest in acting in non-Hindi films. Whether it is down South or in Hollywood.”


Kareena says she doesn’t believe in being a part of films whose language she doesn’t understand. “How can I emote in a language that I don’t know? I was offered beautiful scripts by the late Rituparno Ghosh in Bengali. I could never bring myself to work with this brilliant filmmaker because of the language barrier, and now he is gone.” Reportedly, the actress has rejected several big South Indian films in the past citing language problems. She is presently shooting for Singam 2, a remake of the Surya starrer by the same name in Tamil.
