Kareena excited as ‘The Buckingham Murders’ PREMIERES at BFI Festival


Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan shared her excitement on Sunday on social media as her thriller film ‘The Buckingham Murders’ premiered at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival 2023. Taking to Instagram, Kareena shared a new still from the film on her stories, which she captioned with an “Excited” sticker and wrote, “The Buckingham Murders premieres today at the BFI London film festival.” The film marks Kareena’s debut as a producer and is helmed by Hansal Mehta, with co-production by Ekta Kapoor.
According to a media report, the film follows Jasmeet Bhamra (portrayed by Kareena Kapoor Khan), a detective and mother who, after losing her own child, must investigate the murder of a 10-year-old in Buckinghamshire, going down a rabbit hole of secrets, where almost everyone in the small town becomes a suspect.
In an interview, Kareena revealed that her character in the film is inspired by Kate Winslet’s role in ‘Mare of Easttown.’ She said, “I love ‘Mare of Easttown,’ and when Hansal came to me, I said this is something that I’ve really been dying to do. So we’ve molded it a little bit on those lines; she plays a detective cop in that.”
Talking about the film, Hansal Mehta said, “It was a refreshing change to make a film set in the U.K., to have Kareena as this detective, to make an authentic procedural, but not to make it about the procedure and make it about grief or trauma and about closure. Kareena’s face – there are a million stories on that face. It’s amazing – when you put the camera on her, without saying anything, it tells you so many stories. In my film, she’s stunning.” Mehta also revealed that he has plans to make the film part of a film franchise, depending on the reception. “I have stories taking Jaspreet Bhamra forward,” Mehta added. Meanwhile, Kareena will be next seen in ‘The Crew,’ which also stars Kriti Sanon, Tabu, and Dilji Dosanjh in the lead roles. The film is all set to hit theaters on March 22, 2024.
