|Actress Kareena Kapoor was all but signed on to play the female lead in Singham 2, but things didn’t turn out as expected.
Director Rohit Shetty has worked with Kareena Kapoor in films like Golmaal Returns and Golmaal 3, and both the movies were superhits. Unsurprisingly, the director shares a very warm relationship with Kareena, and was even contemplating to sign her in Singham 2. But, that’s not going to happen now!
Though Singham had South siren Kajal Aggarwal in the lead, the sequel will have another actress. As per insiders, Rohit Shetty had approached Kareena for Singham 2, and the actress was more than willing to do it.
“Rohit had offered Kareena 'Singham 2' even before 'Chennai Express' hit the theatres. Kareena was keen to do the film and had also consented in principle,” a source is quoted as saying.

But after going through the movie’s script, the director felt that the role meant for Kareena is too small for an A-list actress, and it wouldn’t justify her star status.
So the makers have decided to sign a South actress for the sequel now, while rumours are also rife that the TV actress Drashti Dhami may be roped in for the film, which is expected to go on the floors early next year.

Kareena Kapoor is apparently fine with the development and there is no resentment between her and Rohit Shetty. The two may even team up for another project in near future.
The Tamil Singam 2, released a few months backs, had two heroines playing the lead.
