Mumbai: Bollywood's A-lister Vidya Balan and Kareena Kapoor who lately tied knot to Siddharth Roy Kapur and Saif Ali Khan respectively have remolded their work structure post marriage and have said no the intimate scenes. The story was confirmed by filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia who offered his forthcoming project to them but his tender was turned down on account of being bold.
Dhulia approached both the ladies for his film Begum Samru, but neither of the actors nodded to it because of its steamy content.
In an interview with a daily newspaper, Dhulia opened up about the film's casting and said, "I did approach Kareena and Vidya but they weren't comfortable with the script. Being said that I will ensure I don't face any censor issues in terms of satellite rights."
The story is based on a Hindi novel and is set on the backdrop of 1840s. Begum Samru, the central character is an Indian dancer in 18th century who becomes the ruler of Sardhana (a place near Meerut). She later plays an important role in struggle for political power in 18th and 19th century.
