It would have been the first time that Kareena Kapoor and her cousin Ranbir would be on stage together but for Priyanka Chopra!
The makers of Indian Idol 6 wanted cousins Kareena and Ranbir Bebo to appear together on the stage to promote their respective films.
However, given the alleged acrimonious relationship between Bebo and Priyanka, who is Ranbir’s co-star in Barfi!, this coming-together did not happen.
According to a source: “In the context of the Kapoor family being a part of Bollywood since the last 80 years, it’s sad that Kareena and her cousin Ranbir have never appeared together on the stage ever. The makers of the show wanted to make this possible.”

Apparently at the last minute, it was decided that it could not go as planned.
The source added: “Everyone realised that it would not be possible to get Kareena and Ranbir’s co-star Priyanka Chopra on the same stage. That’s why Ranbir shot his portions on Friday whereas Kareena went live on the show.”
