Amrita's a friend for life: Kareena
In Bollywood, friendships are hard to find. But these two have decided to stick to each other like glue.india Updated: Jun 03, 2006 19:35 IST
In an industry where there are only working relationships, Kareena Kapoor's friendship with Amrita Arora has outlasted all constraints of time, jealousy and backbiting.
"I really like that girl. She's fun, easygoing, hassle free and honest... just like me. Our friendship cannot be measured against other filmy friendships. I make friends for life. For example, my best friend has been with me from school. Amu (Amrita) too will remain with me," Kareena said.
To prove Kareena right, Amrita is flying down to London. The two pals, who will be together for five days, intend to have a ball shopping, going to fun places and generally doing the things they cannot do in Mumbai with thousands of eyeballs trailing them.
"It is very simple. You have to do what you have to do if you want a friendship to last," said Amrita.
"Bebo (Kareena) is busy, and so am I. Besides our careers, we have our boyfriends to spend time with. I had this opportunity to open a restaurant in Birmingham on 3rd June. When I heard Bebo was arriving in London on 5th, I decided to stay back for her sake. We'll have ourselves a ball."
There's another incentive for Amrita to be in London.
"My boyfriend Usman (the British cricketer) celebrates his birthday on 9th June. So I'll get a chance to spend the day with him. Actually I am killing three birds with one stone."
How does she manage to keep this long-distance relationship going?
"Trust, friendship and lots of space. We need the time apart to excel in our individual professions. Also, the time we spend together is all quality time. I hardly get to see Usman these days. I'll be seeing him next week after three months.
"Thankfully, lots of shooting, shows and inaugurations happen there. Even the film that I am doing with R Madhavan will be shot in August in Scotland for 20 days and in London for 15 days.
"So, I guess I'll get some time with Usman then. In professions such as ours we really have to make an effort to keep a relationship going."
