When Shahid Kapoor convinced Kareena Kapoor to join the cast of Jab We Met

At the time when Jab We Met was in the making, Kareena Kapoor Khan was going through a phase without any film projects. She had not worked in over a year and a half, primarily because she was being selective and turning down big film offers. Films were not aligning with her vision and desires for the kind of roles she wanted.

It was during this period of professional introspection that Imtiaz Ali approached Shahid Kapoor with the film's script. Both Shahid and Kareena were relatively new to Imtiaz, as he had just made his directorial debut with Socha Na Tha. Kareena confessed that she hadn't seen the film, but Shahid had. Shahid, who believed in the project, saw the potential in the characters and the script. He played a pivotal role in persuading Kareena to take up the role. She said, "I think Imtiaz called up Shahid and narrated the film. We didn’t even know Imtiaz because he had just made Socha Na Tha. I hadn’t seen the film, Shahid I think had seen the film.”
