An Indian news magazine has named Kareena Kapoor in the list of 25 most influential women in the country. Kareena, who is the only Bollywood star in the list, feels that such an honour comes with responsibility towards the nation and her fans.

“With wider influence, comes additional accountability. My fans look up to me and are influenced by my decisions, which I make sure are taken responsibly,” says the actor.

Kareena is a privileged member of the first family of Indian cinema, the Kapoors, and is now married to the Nawab of Pataudi, actor Saif Ali Khan.
But she isn’t shy about using the power and influence she enjoys in the industry.

“It feels great that you are looked upon as an icon. The power of influence helps you  do better and make choices that allow you to maintain a certain benchmark that well-wishers are proud of,” says Kareena.

The actor is currently shooting for director Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha with Amitabh Bachchan, Manoj Bajpayee, Ajay Devgn and Arjun Rampal.

She plays a journalist who gives an insight into the political system of the country.

However, Kareena avoided our question about whether the movie has influenced her views on the system.
