Mumbai, Oct. 12 -- She has acted in around 50 films till date, but Kareena Kapoor has never had a brush with South Indian cinema. That is until now. If things go well, the actor will be seen in a multi-lingual film with Tamil actor Karan. For the same venture, Kareena has been apparently offered a whopping Rs. 8 crore.
"Kareena, who is impressed with the concept, has asked for the script before taking things to the next level. She feels there's no point talking about the money or other details unless she likes the script. Now the makers will send the script to Bebo," says an insider close to the actor.
Kareena and Karan have already worked together in the Mahindra Duro scooty ad. "Director/ producer Vadivudayan is going to make the film on a Rs. 80-100 crore budget," adds the insider, adding that the actor will take the final call only after her wedding.
Titled Sokkanathan in Tamil, the film will be made in Telugu and Hindi as well.

Anupama Chopra's review: Heroine
A Madhur Bhandarkar film has the same allure as a juicy tabloid or some particularly nasty gossip. Bhandarkar is a proudly pedestrian director. His movies are voyeuristic, sensational, sleazy. But invariably, the narrative includes a strong conservative streak so viewers can leer and still feel morally superior. Heroine is Bhandarkar's great Bollywood expose. FULL REVIEW
