Actress Kareena Kapoor, is quite upbeat about her cousin Ranbir's foray into filmdom with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya.
"I believe he's really good before the camera. Good yaar! Maybe we Kapoors can give the Khans a run for their money," said Kareena, who along with her close friends and family celebrated her birthday on the beaches of Goa Sep 21.
"It was great fun. My mom (Babita), sister (Karisma) and my little niece were there with me. Besides Shahid (Kapur), I had taken along some of my closest friends, like Amrita Arora, her sister Malaika and her husband Arbaaz," Kareena told IANS.
The glow hasn't left the diva's face. Unfortunately, one of Kareena's best friends Karan Johar couldn't make it to her birthday celebrations.
"We really missed him. But we had fun, just chilled out. We brought in my birthday with a cake and a quiet dinner. I no longer crave for noisy crowded pleasure spots. Maybe I've mellowed. I had left my phone behind and couldn't even check my messages and calls.
"Only later did I come to know how many people called. Every year I think my birthday is the best one of my life. Every year my family and friend surprise me. Having Shahid by my side definitely adds to my joy."
However, she has no plans of marriage in the near future. "Definitely not for the next four-five years. He needs to work. I need to find my place as an actress. I admit I'm fairly satisfied with the work I've done. But I need that one role that could rock my career."
"Mani Ratnam's Lajjo could be that film. Just the thought of working with Aamir Khan makes me weak in my knees. Luckily I've worked with all the Khans - Shah Rukh, Salman, Saif, Fardeen and now ... Aamir."
