Intitially, when the casting of the film was discussed, three names cropped up opposite to Shahrukh Khan - Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Asin. But, Kareena was finalised for the film. Do you know how?
When discussion was on, Kareena approached Shahrukh Khan and made it clear to him that she and only she would play his heroine in the film. According to film analyst Komal Nahta's reports, Shahrukh Khan said, “We were still discussing whether to cast Kareena or Priyanka Chopra or Asin, but Kareena didn"t let the thought process go any further."
But, Bebo also made it clear on her reservations about doing stunts and actions. “When Kareena was so insistent, we didn"t even approach any other heroine – neither Priyanka nor Asin nor anyone else," added Shahrukh.
