‘Excited to share screen space with Tabu’

Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor is glad that her wish is coming true with their upcoming film ‘Crew’

-

Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor Khan said that she always wanted to work with versatile actor Tabu and is glad that her wish is coming true with their upcoming film ‘Crew’.

Also starring Kriti Sanon, the movie is a comedy directed by Rajesh A Krishnan of ‘Lootcase’ fame. It features Kareena, Tabu and Kriti as three air hostesses working for a fictional airline called ‘Kohinoor’. With the carrier on the verge of bankruptcy, the trio’s future seemed uncertain, but then they found a dead passenger carrying gold biscuits.

“I am super excited because I got to work with Tabu for the first time. Lolo (her sister, Karishma Kapoor) has worked with her so many times. I had the opportunit­y and the honour of finally sharing screen space with her,” Kareena said at the film’s trailer launch event.

The actor further said that she was also excited to collaborat­e with Sanon, calling her ‘supremely talented’ and ‘lovely’.

“I hope that film does

Rajesh has made a super funny film, so I am really excited and happy and hope it works,” she added.

Kriti said that it was refreshing for her to work with female costars. “We always get to work with men, mostly. It was very refreshing to work with women, who are so talented and whom I have admired for years. I think we all look up to them (Tabu and Kareena) in what they bring to the table and the fact that they have been reinventin­g themselves,” she said.

Kriti said that she is confident that ‘Crew’ will break the myths about women-centric films.

“Whenever a women-led film comes, then people think it would be serious or some issue being raised or it would be out male-bashing or something like that. But here, nothing is like that. You can see women can do comedy very well,” she said.

Director Krishnan revealed the film is sort of inspired by real incidents.

Also starring Diljit Dosanjh and Kapil Sharma, ‘Crew’ will be released in theatres on March 29. It is produced by Anil Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor, Ektaa R Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor.

‘I hope that film does well. Rajesh has made a super funny film, so I am really excited and happy and hope it works,’ she says
