To mark this milestone, Kareena recently shared an interesting insight into how she came to work on the iconic project. In an interview with Mid-Day, she disclosed that Shahid Kapoor played a pivotal role in convincing her to take on the film.
The story of how Kareena Kapoor Khan came to work on the film 'Jab We Met' with Shahid Kapoor is quite interesting and adds to the film's history. At the time, Kareena had been without work for about a year and a half. She was being selective about projects and looking for something that aligned with her vision.
Fate intervened when director Imtiaz Ali approached Shahid Kapoor with the script for 'Jab We Met.' Notably, both Kareena and Shahid were not previously acquainted with Imtiaz, as he had just directed 'Socha Na Tha.'
Shahid Kapoor, who had seen Imtiaz's work and was familiar with his talent, encouraged Kareena to consider the role. He assured her that it was an excellent opportunity.
Based on Shahid's encouragement and the unexpected approach from Imtiaz, Kareena agreed to take on the film. Little did she know at the time that 'Jab We Met' would go on to become one of her most iconic and beloved films.
'Jab We Met' is celebrated for its memorable characters and heartwarming story, and it's interesting to learn about the behind-the-scenes journey that brought Kareena Kapoor Khan on board for this iconic project. The film has continued to be a fan favorite even after 16 years since its release.
