If you are wondering how Kareena Kapoor was chosen for the role in RA.ONE, this is how it happened. In fact it wasn’t the filmmakers who chose her for the role, instead it was Kareena who chose the film for herself. Apparently the actress got in touch with Shahrukh Khan when he and his production team were still deciding the casting for the film and told him clearly that she would be the heroine of the upcoming sci-fi RA.ONE.
Says Shahrukh Khan, “Indeed Kareena Kapoor approached us while we were still debating on who to cast for the role between Kareena, Priyanka and Asin, but Kareena did not let us think any further as she persisted that she wanted to be a part of the project.
However, she also made it quite apparent that she would not do the action scenes; most evidently she was not keen on hanging down from cables and wires. She was really inimitable. On one hand she was keen to be part of the film and on the other she was adamant that she would not do any action scene. It was quite humorous, but since she was so resolute on doing RA.ONE, we chose her over the others and did not approach Priyanka or Asin or any other actress for the role.”
