Close on the heels of the news that Abhishek Bachchan has put in a friendly appearance in Abhishek Sharma’s The Shaukeens, it has now come to light that Dimple Kapadia, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Suniel Shetty also have done cameos in the film.
Kapoor shot for her part a few days back at a Mumbai studio and impressed Sharma with her comic timing. Interestingly, Kapoor and Bachchan were last seen together in J.P. Dutta’s LoC Kargil, which released in 2003. Now, eleven years later, while they will be working in the same project, they will not share screen space together.
Said Sharma about the inclusion of these three actors. “Akshay Kumar is playing himself, a superstar, so there are certain things which come into your mind especially when you show that world. Somewhere people who are related to Bollywood come in as well. That’s why we decided to include Abhishek, Kareena and Suniel as these are all people who have worked with Akshay or who have been good friends with him. I wanted them in my film,” revealed the director.
The Shaukeens, an adaptation of the 1982 Shaukeen, is set to release on November 7.
