It's the love story of two people who aren't married to each other," says music composer-turned director Vishal Bharadwaj about his new and by far most ambitious film, Mr Mehta & Mrs Singh.

While Aamir Khan was finalised as Mr Mehta a few months ago, the casting of Mrs Singh comes as a surprise.

"Kareena Kapoor is an actress I've been watching since Refugee. Her performance in Mani Ratnam's Yuva finally convinced me of her extraordinary talent," says Vishal. "After working with Shabana Azmi in Makdee and Tabu in Maqbool, I'm spoilt. I only want to work with the best actresses in the country. And you have to agree, Kareena is among our best today."

Vishal admits he approached Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta to play the female dates were not matching Aamir's dates. So I had to look elsewhere. But I'm glad Kareena is in the project. Aamir has lead. "But their worked with Rani and Preity before but not with Kareena. This is a completely untried pairing. That adds a special edge to the on-screen romance."
