Dressed in a simple salwar kameez, a white coat and wearing a stethoscope, Kareena Kapoor Khan sports an intense look in the poster as Dr. Preet Sahani.

The 35-year-old actress said her role in the neo-noir drama-thriller is on the lines of a Samaritan, but the setting of the movie is dark.

"I play a doctor in the film. It's (the role) very simple and nice, good Samaritan kind of a thing. But the whole atmosphere of the film is so nice and dark that the role is very different," Kareena had told media in an earlier interview.

Interestingly, the '3 Idiots' actress has played a doctor before in films like Salman Khan starrer 'Kyon Ki' (2005), 'Kambakkht Ishq' and 'Agent Vinod' opposite Saif Ali Khan in 2012.

'Udta Punjab', directed by Abhishek Chaubey, is being made after four years of research and is based around the drug-related problems prevalent in Punjab.

Punjabi actor Diljit Dosanjh will be seen opposite the 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' actress.

Kareena made her film debut in 2000 with JP Dutta's 'Refugee' and went on to work in films ranging from multi-starrer 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham', to crime-drama 'Omkara' and 'Jab We Met', a romantic-comedy.

The actress, who earlier used to feature in four-five movies every year, has slowed down her work and is seen doing one-two films per year, which she terms intentional.

'Udta Punjab' is slated for release on June 17 and the film's trailer will be out April 16.
