Producer Ekta Kapoor, who is all set to make the sequel of her film `Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai` a bigger block buster is hell bent to recreate reality on the silver screen in the closest possible way!
With Akshay Kumar playing Dawood Ibrahim in the film and Kareena Kapoor essaying the role of his ladylove, Ekta and her director Milan Luthria are geared up to make one of the finest biopic of all times.
It is believed that Dawood fell in love with actress Mandakini of the `Ram Teri Ganga Maili` fame after seeing her in the waterfall-bathing scene in the film repeatedly. This is where the light eyed starlet of the 1980s had flaunted her assets with just a white saree, reasonably covering her modesty.
And ironically Bebo, who will play Mandakini in QUATIM sequel has agreed to do the sizzling scene which was originally directed by her grandfather, the late Raj Kapoor.
The Kapoor girl had little inhibitions on agreeing to do this scene on learning that the script demanded it. Moreover, she has complete faith in filmmaker Luthria for she knows he will shoot it aesthetically.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “Bebo is not averse to the idea of doing the water scene, as long as it is aesthetically shot. She knows Milan`s sensibilities are very good.”
Hmm…that’s a very bold move! But Kareena had refrained from doing “liplock” scenes with her other co-stars barring beau Saif Ali Khan. But now that she is all set to do a `Mandakini` act…wonder how Saifu is going to react!
