Kareena Kapoor has always maintained that she’s a spontaneous actor and doesn’t prepare for her roles, but it looks like that’s set to change now. For her role in Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha, she’s taking inspiration from Christiane Amanpour, the famous CNN reporter.
“She is doing really intense research for this role. Her part in the film is difficult and she wants to make sure she does complete justice to it,” reveals a source, adding, “Kareena has asked for videos of the major stories reported by Christiane. She has also asked for documentaries based on her and all the interviews she has done along with videos of her being interviewed. Since she’s taking inspiration from such a renowned reporter, she doesn’t want to mess it up in any way.”
Kareena has around a month to prepare for the role before the film goes on the floors. Her look, the source says, will be simple and somewhat like her appearance in Dev (2004).
The first schedule, which will start early next year, will take place in Bhopal. The film will also have Amitabh Bachchan in a role heavily inspired by social activist Anna Hazare.
The release date has been fixed as August 15. ‘I’m excited about performance-oriented roles’. Insisting that marriage doesn’t influence her choice of films, Kareena Kapoor claims that starting with Satyagraha, she’s keen to take on more character-oriented roles.
“I really wanted to do Satyagraha, because I wanted to work with Prakash Jha (director) and even Ajay Devgn, with whom he has a great track record. I’m excited to be part of such a performance-oriented film,” says the actor.
Claiming that this shouldn’t be misconstrued as her wanting to do only heavy, issue-based films, she clarifies, “I’m not restricting myself to any particular genre. It’s about the content and your character. I love song-and-dance films too.”

Yes, the promos of 'Jackpot' appeared soaked in fun, but the film turned out to be an attempted noir, which tries to establish some reverse con-artists as normal human beings. Unfortunately, the coolness of these characters gets lost somewhere in the proceeding, and what remains is an average story with a lot of latent potential.
If the first instalment of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" was visually splendid, then "The Desolation of Smaug" is an optimistically exciting adventure opus with dollops of action scenes that include fights, chases and romance.

"You remind me of Shabana Azmi," guffaws our don't-give-a-damn hero to the social activist heroine. In the first-half they clash over idlis, ideologies and idle chatter. Mismatched as they are, and we are reminded twice that she is older, Kareena Kapoor-Khan and Imran Khan trudge along cutely till mid-point after which the narrative shuffles noisily into a village in Gujarat where it all falls apart.
"Last Vegas" is a funny, heartwarming and a touching buddy film about ageing and male bonding whose premise is so very much like the 2009 released film "The Hangover". But unlike in "The Hangover", these four buddies are geriatrics who jam up after 58 years of separation.
