Sources say that instead of being deterred by leading lady Kareena Kapoor's walkout, Sanjay Leela Bhansali continues with his big plans for his epic love story 'Ram Leela'.
Kareena Kapoor may have marched out of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming romance film, but the filmmaker is yet not ready to hang his head in disappointment.
In fact, according to sources, he has bigger plans in place, the first step of which is to take lead actor Ranveer Singh on a trip to Gujarat to prep him for his role. Our source from the film says, “Bhansali is planning to take Ranveer to Gujarat in order to make him familiar with the place, where the film is set, apart from introducing him to the crewmembers.”
With Bebo exiting the project, buzz is that Bhansali could be looking for a fresh face. And in case, the filmmaker decides to go with a tried and tested actress to cast as his Gujarati heroine, here’s looking at the timetables of some of our Bollywood actresses who could suit the part. But it looks like all of them have a rather choc-o-bloc schedule to start shooting next month.

Priyanka Chopra: PC could be Bhansali’s only hope among A-list actresses. She has no other film apart from the remake of Zanjeer.
Jumping the gun?
Sources close to PC recently claimed that she had been approached to play the female lead in this Bhansali project. However, informers inside Bhansali’s camp indicate that PC’s ‘friends’ may have made the announcement a tad too early. Especially, since a new face could also be considered.
New Delhi: Vidya Balan may have been mocked for sticking to her \'desi\' avatar in real life, but when it comes to films, the actress shows no qualms in experimenting with her looks. If \'Ghanc...
"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.
