"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 stage ever," a source told Mid-Day. "The makers of the show wanted to make this possible."

While Kareena's live appearance went ahead as planned, Ranbir pre-recorded a segment with his with his Barfi! co-stars Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D' Cruz.

Chopra recently visited Kareena on set during the shooting of Heroine, and it has been widely speculated that ongoing animosity between the two actresses was the reason behind the Agent Vinod star's no-show.

"Everyone realised that it would not be possible to get Kareena and Ranbir's co-star Priyanka Chopra on the same stage," the insider added. "That's why Ranbir shot his portions on Friday, whereas Kareena went live on the show."

Ranbir confirmed to Digital Spy that he and Kareena have been approached to star together in a film by Zoya Akhtar.

The 29-year-old actor recently launched a Barfi! interactive app on YouTube.

Directed by Anurag Basu, Barfi! opens in cinemas worldwide on September 14.

Heroine releases on September 21.
