When news of Shobha De publishing a book on actor Kareena Kapoor came out, many expected it to serve as an interesting insight into the actor’s life. But the moment you broach the topic, Kareena immediately makes it a point to clarify that the pages will have nothing about her personal life. “It is not going to be an autobiography or anything. I wouldn’t want my life to be completely read by everyone. It has nothing to do with my personal life or the way I am,” she asserts.
Clearly averse to the idea of a biography, if she is ever offered one, the actor claims she would not be interested. At least for now, she says. “I’ve not even lived my life completely the way I want to,” says Kareena, adding, “I don’t want it to be merely an interesting read for sure. There’s more to me than just that.”
The book, work on which has just begun, will study the actor as a style icon through her films. It will include tips for those interested in following her fashion route. “It will help the youngsters put things together in terms of fashion,” she adds.
Kareena, who is currently shooting for Reema Kagti’s untitled film opposite Aamir Khan, expresses her disappointment with writing in the media. “Journalism is all about sensationalism in today’s time, it’s not much about writing, and that’s the truth and it’s sad,” says the 30-year-old actor. She, however adds that she’ll make her contribution to the world of good writing with an autobiography in three decades if she feels like it: “Maybe 30 years later, I’ll write my biography.”
