Kareena’s Instagram post
On Sunday, Kareena shared a glimpse of her next character with a bunch of new pictures on her Instagram account. In one of the pictures, she was seen looking out from a glass window, and in another she was seen with a serious expression, waiting by the table. A picture also showed her on the set with fog all over the place.
The actor wrote about the journey of playing Jas Bhamra. She began, “Jas was a character I have been waiting to play for the last 23 years, being a huge fan of the detective series genre… watching everything from Karamchand to Helen Mirren in Prime Suspect to Agatha Christie in Hercule Poirot to Kate Winslet in Mare of Easttown, I was just dying to be that detective woman. On a 25-page synopsis given to me by Hansal and Ekta, I started reading it at 1 a.m., and I knew I had found the woman I wanted to be…”
A slightly unconventional film
Kareena further shared how she collaborated with director Hansal Mehta and producer Ektaa Kapoor for the ‘unconventional film’. She wrote, “Ekta, Hansal and I set off on this journey to make a slightly unconventional film, but a film that is with heart, a bit of a smile, and, oh my god, lots of tears… It played at the British Film Institute last night, and as this film starts its journey… in the world of movies… I couldn’t be more nervous and excited as an actor and a first-time producer… I feel so odd writing that (laughing face emoticon)… but I feel really cool…”
The actor then added, “So giving you all a glimpse of this gem we made… into the world of Jas Bhamra. I do hope Jas hasn’t ended her journey yet, because it’s been a dream to continue this wonderful yet strong woman whose grief is beyond measure but stronger than she knows.”
Kareena was last seen in Sujoy Ghosh’s Jaane Jaan, which released on Netflix on September 21.
