Kareena Kapoor Khan Reveals a Character She’s Longed to Portray for 23 Years: Shares Stills from Hansal Mehta’s Upcoming Project

Kareena Kapoor Khan’s upcoming film, The Buckingham Murders, premiered at the BFI London Film Festival. The film stars Kapoor as Jasmeet Bhamra, a detective and mother who must investigate the murder of a 10-year-old in Buckinghamshire after losing her own child. Kareena Kapoor shared a glimpse of her next character on Instagram on Sunday, posting a series of photos of herself in a serious expression, looking out from a glass window, and waiting by a table on a foggy set.

In a heartfelt note on her character called Jas Bhamra, she wrote, “Jas was a character I have been waiting to play for the last 23 years, being a huge fan of the detective series genre… watching everything from Karamchand to Helen Mirren in Prime Suspect to Agatha Christie in Hercule Poirot to Kate Winslet in Mare of Easttown, I was just dying to be that detective woman. On a 25-page synopsis given to me by Hansal and Ekta, I started reading it at 1 a.m., and I knew I had found the woman I wanted to be…”

Kareena further shared her collaboration with director Hansal Mehta and producer Ektaa Kapoor for this ‘unconventional film’. She penned, “Ekta, Hansal and I set off on this journey to make a slightly unconventional film, but a film that is with heart, a bit of a smile, and, oh my god, lots of tears… It played at the British Film Institute last night, and as this film starts its journey… in the world of movies… I couldn’t be more nervous and excited as an actor and a first-time producer… I feel so odd writing that (laughing face emoticon)… but I feel really cool…”

Kareena Kapoor Khan was last seen in the Sujoy Ghosh film called Jaane Jaan, which started streaming on Netflix on September 21.
