Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor, who is known for her outspoken ways, has created a stir in the south film industry by making a comment on Suriya.
Recently, there was a big buzz that Kareena Kapoor will be doing an item number in Suriya's upcoming film "Anjaan," director by Lingusamy.
Reacting to the rumours, Kareena said that she is not doing any Tamil film. She also further stated that she doesn't even know who Suriya is. "I don't know where such baseless stories come from. I haven't signed any such film. I don't even know who Suriya and Linguswamy are. I've never seen them. I've zero interest in acting in non-Hindi films whether it is down South or in Hollywood," Kareena was quoted as saying by DNA.
The "Jab We Met" actress also added that she doesn't prefer acting in other language films as she can't understand them. "How can I emote in a language that I don't know? I was offered beautiful scripts by the late Rituparno Ghosh in Bengali. I never could bring myself to work with this brilliant filmmaker because of the language barrier, and now he is gone," Kareena said.
Apparently, her comments on Suriya have not gone down well with the actor's fans. Many of them took to social media sites and vented their anger. They want Kareena to apologise to the actor or give a clarification on her comment, reported Times of India.
Although Suriya has worked predominantly in south films, he has starred in one Hindi film titled "Rakta Charitra," directed by Ram Gopal Varma. Some of the actor's Tamil films are very popular that they have been remade in Hindi and have turned out to be big hits in Bollywood as well.
Aamir Khan's "Ghajini" is a remake of Suriya's Tamil film with the same name. His "Singam" was remade in Hindi as "Singham," starring Ajay Devgan. In a coincidence of sorts, Kareena will be playing the female lead to the sequel of "Singham," directed by Rohit Shetty of "Chennai Express" fame.
