A friend of Kareena reveals, "Bebo plays Akshay's wife in the film.She is killed before the film begins. So Akshay keeps remembering her in flashbacks. The role is like that of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Aditya Chopra's Mohabbatein. The film's leading lady played a kind of spirit that ran across the film. Likewise in Gabbar."
In the original Tamil film entitled Ramanaa Simran had played the role that Kareena has just completed in Gabbar.
Says Kareena's friend, "Bebo and Akshay share a fabulous rapport. They've played husband and wife in Aetraaz. She agreed to do so again because her character propels the story forward."
