Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor Khan seems to be experiencing her reel-life character from ‘Heroine’ in real life!
Her career graph is declining and she seems to be out of work perennially.
At the moment, every move she makes, seems to be going wrong, jinxed or not the right one.

No doubt she has been one of the top stars in Bollywood, having been the first girl to have managed to work with all the famous three Khans (Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan) in a calendar year, but then, a lot of ‘wrong’ choices seem to have stalled her progress.
Kareena turned down Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram-Leela in 2013. She then walked out of Karan Johar's ‘Shuddhi’ since Hrithik Roshan is not part of the project.
It does seem that her film ‘Bombay Samurai’ opposite Farhan Akhtar may be stalled, because Farhan wants to work on the sequel to ‘Rock On’ first.
Her film ‘Badtameez Dil’ for producers Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar shows no signs of taking off.
We hear that Kareena has now refused a film opposite Saif Ali Khan for filmmaker Nikhil Advani.

After being part of some of the biggest blockbusters in the industry Kareena is now delivering series of flops.
Kapoor was in a supporting role in an ensemble cast in Prakash Jha's political drama 'Satyagraha' (2013). The film received little praise from critics, with modest earning at the box office.
Bhansali offered her a film, but she preferred ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ with Imran Khan, which eventually flopped.
Her 'Agent Vinod', an espionage thriller met with a tepid response and she was described as miscast.
Kapoor was cast as the protagonist of Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Heroine' which earned her praises but was a flop at the box office.

So what is going on with Kareena Kapoor?
Kareena does not really have work at the moment apart from the Ajay Devgn film 'Singham Returns'.
The trailer for 'Singham Returns', the sequel to 2011's blockbuster 'Singham', was released on July 11 showcasing Devgn as an honest police inspector.
The cast and crew of the film along with Ajay Devgn and Kareena attended the event which also had a media interaction session.
But the film, as the name suggests, is out and out an Ajay Devgn film and we wonder how important will be Kareena's role.

The actress will also be seen with her 'Bodyguard' co-star Salman Khan in a film being directed by Kabir Khan titled 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'.
This film will release on Eid 2015 will be presented by Salman himself under his own company 'Salman Khan Ventures'.
Salman will play the title character 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' and Kareena might just be the glamour quotient.
Director Kabir Khan said that the film is unique for both Salman and him and has a larger-than-life background with a human story.
The film will be shot across many parts of India and Khan will start shooting this November.
After doing ornamental roles in films like 'Bodyguard' and 'Ra.One' we wonder if it's a clever move by Kareena to be part of these two films. Ajay and Salman’s film might score big at the box office but Kareena as an actress will have very little to do with its success.
