Actor Karena Kapoor says in the past she has done a lot of films for the sake of friendship, but now only a film with a good story will lure her.
"I have done a lot of films for friends. Now I want to do films for story. I don't regret it (having done any films for friends) and for me, it's never a mistake. I am like that - I always think from the heart, so it's fine," Kareena said.
The actor, who has been part of some commercial films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, 3 Idiots, Bodyguard and RA.One, has also done offbeat roles in films like Chameli and Talaash.

What was her reason behind choosing those?
"I did Chameli and Dev because I needed to balance myself. I come from a family where I needed to prove myself. I was 21 when I played a prostitute in Chameli and I played it again in Talaash...both have been great films of my career," she added.

Now that Kareena will soon be seen in a commercial film like Singham Returns, is she open to the idea of taking up an offbeat movie at this point of time in her career?
"I will do that but I won't do it just for the sake of it because I did Dev, Chameli and Omkara when I was the most (successful) commercial actor. At this stage, I will not do a film just like that or heck of it, because I have done that and I am happy doing commercial films."
"I don't have to prove anything (now). Most importantly, the script has to be good."
