PeepingMoon Exclusive: After Baby No. 2, Kareena Kapoor Khan to return to sets with Hansal Mehta’s next?


Kareena Kapoor Khan is expected to return to work after Baby No. 2 with a Hansal Mehta film. The actress’ role, has exclusively learned, will be in keeping with Hansal’s brand of cinema – author-backed and devoid of bling and glam. Meanwhile, if all goes well with Covid and cinema, and theatres open soon, Kareena’s Laal Singh Chaddha with Aamir Khan will release on Christmas. She shot for it in Punjab before her second pregnancy.

After having Taimur, Kareena returned with Rhea Kapoor’s Veere Di Wedding (2018). Now she is in lockdown with her family and keeping Baby No. 2 away from the curious eyes of the world. Kareena has worked with almost all top directors of Bollywood and will be naturally keen on teaming up with Hansal. The film is expected to go on the floors in 2022. It will also wrap up quickly because Kareena won’t be able to allocate dates for long schedules due to her priorities as a mother.
