Kareena Kapoor has been signed by Salman Khan's sister Alvira and her husband Atul Agnihotri to play the female lead opposite Salman in their film ‘Bodyguard'. says a media report.  

The film will be directed by Siddique from Kerala who directed the original version.  

Bodyguard will mount the floors in December. Trade sources say that though the film is Salman-centric (now all his films will be that way), the female lead needed a very performance-oriented actor.  

Atul says, “When we saw the original version done by Nayantara, we were convinced that only Bebo could do the Hindi version.”

Atul also sets the record straight on Katrina Kaif being chosen for the lead: “When a film is being launched, producers go through the thoughtprocess of which of the top three actresses can one cast. We also thought about who was best suited to Salman bhai in this film. But we hadn't approached anyone. As I said, we were convinced from the start that Bebo would be the best choice.”

Atul says that since Bodyguard is a remake, the prep-work on the project is being approached in a very scientific way.

The film is being adapted for a Hindi-speaking audience.  

Pritam is working on the music and Atul and Alvira will be hands-on producers involved in the creative process as well, because Siddique is new to the Bollywood scene.
