For all those who loved the Jennifer Coolidge starrer-The White Lotus, there’s good news for you! Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor Khan loved the comedy-drama series so much, she wants Zoya Akhtar to make a desi version of it — and the latter didn’t say no!

On Saturday night, Kareena took to her Instagram Story after binge-watching the second season of The White Lotus and called it a “genius show.” The satirical series left her speechless and she made a special request to her director-friend Zoya. “We can do this too, Zoya Akhtar! Are you listening?” she added with a heart emoji. 

The Gully Boy maker re-shared and gave the idea a green light instantly. “Can't wait, Kareena. I hear you loud and clear.”

Whether they’re serious or this is all some friendly banter, fans are excited about this already. The White Lotus, directed by Mike White, is a sharp social satire following the exploits of various employees and guests at an exclusive Hawaiian resort over the span of one highly transformative week. The second season premiered on October 30.

On the work front, Zoya is currently gearing up for the release of The Archies, a live-action musical film adaptation of comic book of the same name. The film will mark the acting debut of star kids Suhana Khan, Khushi Kapoor and Agastya Nanda in Bollywood. The film will release next year.

Kareena was last seen in Laal Singh Chaddha with Aamir Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya. She will now be seen in the Hindi adaptation of The Devotion of Suspect X. She also has a thriller with director Hansal Mehta in the pipeline.
