Kareena said the movie is starkly different from her upcoming film Ki & Ka. “Udta Punjab will be totally different from Ki & Ka because this is lot more fun, quirky and entertaining. Udta Punjab will be dark, gritty, edgy kind of a film,” she said.
The film, scheduled to release in June, also stars Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor and Prabhjyot Singh. Punjabi actor Diljit Dosanjh will be seen opposite the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actress.
Kareena made her film debut in 2000 with JP Dutta’s Refugee and went on to work in films ranging from multi-starrer Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, to crime-drama Omkara and Jab We Met,a romantic-comedy.
The actress, who earlier used to feature in four-five movies every year, has slowed down her work and is seen doing one-two films per year, which she terms intentional. ”It is a conscious decision, yes. I want to do something which is great, something that I love, which will get me excited to go to the studio and do it. So, it is going to take a lot out of me to say yes,” she said.
