She is anything but arrogant. Extremely playful, Kareena Kapoor enjoys being so. “The world is yet to understand what is it like being Kareena Kapoor. They are busy making speculations. Let them do so,” she says. Dressed in a casual red
t-shirt and skinny pants, Kareena looks relaxed.
From her wafer-thin look to the love of her life, Kareena was the hottest topic of the year 2008. But what about the dud called Tashan? “Irrespective of the fact that the movie worked or not; every single bachcha knows about the film — my bikini shot, orange juice diet and… zero figure. Even my daughter will know about the film,” she says.
If her waistline made headlines, Kareena feels, her flop film becomes bigger news than national crisis. “Every news channel would run it as a ticker. I guess the case is that I was never an underdog. People and media like those who come from small towns and make it big. They don’t like people who are something and manage to achieve bigger things in life,” states the lady and rues that it’s “tougher for us.” “We have to keep innovating ourselves constantly but they enjoy running us down.”
Mention Saif and the superstar turns into a child woman. “He is too relaxed. He is in his own industry,” says the girlfriend who knows that “Saif will never sign a film until it interests him to the core. Not even, if it calls for sitting idle for a year.” “He only works in films he believes in.” And one of them is the upcoming Saif’s home production, directed by Sriram Raghvan, where the two will share screen space once again.
