Did you know that the 3D edition of Roopesh Paul's erotic saga "Kamasutra" was originally offered to Kareena Kapoor Khan?
Yes, Bebo, and not Playboy cover girl Sherlyn Chopra, was the original choice for the tale of love and sex "Kamasutra 3D".
In fact, Roopesh Paul had approached Kareena with the role. But the Begum of Pataudi turned down the offer, despite loving the script, as she felt the content was too 'pornographic' for her taste. So Rupesh went and roped in Sherlyn Chopra instead.
Roopesh revealed that at some point during the making of the film, he wanted to drop Chopra and cast Hollywood’s Eva Longoria or Mila Kunis, after she leaked a video clip of the flick on youtube without his permission. However, things were sorted out soon.
“Kamasutra 3D”, slammed as highly pornographic in nature, has received rave reviews at the 66th Cannes film festival. Not just that, it has also bagged three nominations including best motion picture, best original score and original song at this year 86th Academy awards.
The film will hit the theaters in May this year.
