Kareena Kapoor Khan has worked with all the Khans, but she minces no words when asked to pick a favourite. Although she is married to Saif Ali Khan and is close to the other three — Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir — she says she has always been moved by Aamir’s choice of films and his performances.
“I love the way he has pushed himself to deliver such phenomenal performances each time. I have always been his fan, and he is my favourite. I was paired with him in 3 Idiots (2009), which is a cult film and one of the biggest Bollywood grossers of all time. So, I am biased towards him,” she says.
Explaining her equation with Shah Rukh and Salman, she adds, “I respect Salman for the way he is. I had always enjoyed working with him, and my next is also with him. Shah Rukh, too, is very gentle and he loves Saif and me. But, that can’t take away the fact that Aamir is my personal favourite as an actor.”
And what about her husband? “Saif is a brilliant actor, and he’s doing some great films. If there’s a good script, I’d love to work with him again,” says Kareena. Referring to the lukewarm response to the films they have done together so far (Tashan; 2008, Kurbaan; 2009 and Agent Vinod; 2012 to name a few), she reasons, “I don’t think the actors and their chemistry should be blamed if their films have failed.”
