Kareena Kapoor finally speaks up about leaving Ram Leela

Mumbai: The news of Kareena Kapoor’s exit from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela is quite hot over the web and in the media. The rumors have also churned out more gossips that now Bebo had to intervene to speak up the truth. As per the news Kareena’s replacement in Ram Leela is none other than Priyanka Chopra. Kareena says that the reason of leaving the film is money and date issues. There are rumors making the rounds that she left the project due to her wedding which was coming in her way. Bebo clears the dust saying there is no issue of marriage at all since she is a through professional, her marriage cannot come in between her work assignments.

Kareena Kapoor reveals that she walked out of the movie a week back. She adds that she had given Bhansali 100 days for the shooting in August according to her contract with him but he wanted extra days for filming the movie. Then Kareena’s managers – Zahid Khan and Reshma Shetty very carefully thought about the matter and decided it was not lucrative at all since Kareena had three new movies as well lined up for release next year. She tells that one of the films will begin going on floors in October this year soon after the release of Bhandarkar’s Heroine. Besides she has also endowed 32 days to Madhur for the promotional activities of Heroine as it is much special movie for Bebo.

She clarifies that her marriage has nothing to do with her dropping Ram Leela as she is quite professional and work is more important to her than her personal life. She says these kinds of stories have been cooked up by the PR machineries and there is no truth behind it.

Zahid Khan, Kareena’s manager, reveals that they had fixed a lumpsum amount for the shooting for 100 days with Mr. Bhansalin and made it clear to him about the extra days being charged on per day basis. He adds that initially Bhansali was happy with it but later he backed out for the extra compensation.
