Bollywood sensation Kareena Kapoor Khan is diversifying her career with intriguing projects such as ‘The Buckingham Murders’ and her vocal contribution to Marvel’s ‘Black Widow.’ While there’s been speculation about her potential Hollywood debut, Kareena clarified her stance in a recent interview.
In Hansal Mehta’s upcoming film ‘The Buckingham Murders,’ Kareena takes on a distinctive role, showcasing her willingness to explore diverse genres. Despite her involvement in English-language cinema and Marvel’s ‘Black Widow,’ Kareena emphasized that she is not rushing ‘bus pakad ke’ (catching the bus) to Hollywood but is committed to experimenting with her craft.
Addressing the buzz around bridging the gap between Indian and Hollywood cinema, Kareena explained her motivation for joining ‘The Buckingham Murders.’ She expressed her love for shows like ‘Mare of Easttown’ and saw the opportunity to be part of something novel when Mehta approached her. Kareena’s decision was driven by the desire to delve into uncharted territory and reinvent herself as an actor, rather than any strategic intention to bridge industry gaps.
About ‘The Buckingham Murders,’ the film recently premiered at the BFI London Film Festival and the Jio Mami Film Festival. Inspired by the American crime drama series ‘Mare of Easttown,’ the movie is a unique blend of 80% English and 20% Hindi.
Kareena Kapoor’s versatile journey extends beyond films, as she lends her voice to the Audible show ‘Marvels Wastelanders: Black Widow,’ where she voices the titular character. Her husband, Saif Ali Khan, also contributes by voicing Star Lord.
On the film front, Kareena Kapoor is set to grace the screen alongside industry stalwarts like Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff, Ranveer Singh, and Deepika Padukone in Rohit Shetty’s action-packed drama ‘Singham Again.’ Additionally, she has the heist comedy ‘The Crew’ in her pipeline, showcasing her ability to seamlessly transition between diverse roles and genres in the world of cinema.
