Kareena Kapoor Khan’s name often makes it to media reports owing to the films she does and even rejects. Kal Ho Na Ho (2003), Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela (2013) are just some of the movies the actor turned down. However, Kareena says she is not afraid to reject offers.

“I am here to sell my talent. I am not here to make friends or pacify people. I have never done that. I have been doing movies with certain directors repeatedly. People who know me and have confidence in me, will always work with me,” she says.
The Bollywood actor also says there is always a strong reason when she rejects a project. “If I have said no to a film, it was because it did not suit me at that point in time. The last thing I would do is to say no to someone without any reason,” says Kareena.
She adds that a lot of people told her that if she gets married, the Khans (Shah Rukh, Amir and Salman) won’t work with her. “I was told that the Khans are looking to work with 16-year-old actors, which is not true. I believe there is a role for everybody,” she says.
Kareena, who belongs to the industry’s most celebrated family, says she always feels the pressure to do good work to live up to her family name. “People have always respected my family. The least I can do is to perform well. I hope I have done that, and continue to do so,” she says.
