Kareena Kapoor's reluctance cost her Ra.One sequel?

Is Kareena Kapoor's reluctance to work in the Ra.One sequel the real reason why Shah Rukh Khan is not considering her for the lead role in the film? The buzz doing the rounds seems to suggest as much.

No sooner was it reported that Shah Rukh was planning a sequel to his superhero flick than speculation arose over its possible cast. This was followed by reports that the film's original lead, Kareena, may not be a part of the sequel.

"Each day, the buzz is growing stronger that Kareena and boyfriend Saif Ali Khan will tie the knot early next year. Although Kareena has said she will continue working in films after marriage, she will definitely cut down on assignments. If she decides to be choosy, a sequel to Ra.One will certainly not be a priority since she has already worked with SRK in the first film of the franchise," a source said.

Others, however, hint at a different reason. Whispers in the industry suggest that Kareena is not very pleased with the box-office show of Ra.One.

SRK's ambitious sci-fi adventure, which is rumoured to have been made on an overall budget of Rs.150 crore, struggled to make profits despite its release on an extended Diwali weekend.

Ra.One saw a 70-80 per cent occupancy in its first weekend, which was considered fairly unimpressive given the fact that the film's promotional budget - at around Rs.50 crore - was the highest in Bollywood to date.

The film was declared a "hit" by almost all the trade magazines - a far cry from the blockbuster status that people in the industry expected.

Also, SRK's strategy to centre the film's promotion almost entirely around himself reportedly rubbed many in Ra.One's cast and crew the wrong way.

Officially, no statement has been released yet on the Ra.One sequel, but the SRK camp has indicated that casting details will only be finalised once the script is ready.

As of now, only one thing is clear. The sequel of Ra.One, whenever it is made, will not feature Kareena.

Here is a different version of it saying SRK sacked her because she didn't give enough time for the film.

Kareena Kapoor will not be a part of Ra.one sequel

TNN Dec 7, 2011, 12.00AM IST

Contrary to reports that RA.One won't have a sequel, sources reveals that Shah Rukh Khan has already commissioned the project and a team of writers begins work on a script come February 2012.

While sources close to Anubhav Sinha deny he's making the sequel, buzz is that SRK is seeking a new actress in place of Kareena Kapoor because team Ra.One wasn't thrilled with the time she gave to promote the film. So will SRK be looking for a new director and heroine? Anybody wanna be his new Chammak Challo?

And here's another version
 
Shah Rukh Khan Rubbishes Ra.One Sequel Rumours
 

Is Shah Rukh Khan making a sequel to Ra.One? Will Kareena Kapoor be cast in it? Or has she been given the slip? These and many more questions have been floating around in the industry since the last couple of days after a media report appeared in a supplement of a Bombay-based daily, claiming that a sequel to Ra.One was indeed being scripted and that Kareena, the heroine, might not be a part of it.

To clear the confusion, Koimoi.com contacted Shah Rukh Khan, who is currently promoting Don 2 in Dubai with his family. When we put all these questions to him, Shah Rukh Khan's curt reply was "Oh, nonsense."

Well that's that. You have heard it straight from the horse's mouth. There is no Ra.One sequel in the works. Thereby, the issue of Kareena being casted or non-casted in the non-existent sequel doesn't exist at all.

Incidentally, Shah Rukh Khan, who left for Dubai on 7th December, will be back to India on 10th of this month.

^ Yeah, why would they make a sequel to a film that got so much flak critically and commercial losses to the distributors.

Hope Ra.One 2/Ra.Two never gets made!
