Bollywood’s Begum, Kareena Kapoor Khan will be shooting for Rhea Kapoor’s production ‘Veere Di Wedding’ starring Sonam Kapoor while expecting her first child which is due in December.
The actress feels this is a very normal aspect of her life and doesn’t even want the media to pay any special attention to her regarding this. In her latest interview, the actress spilled the beans on how she is one of the few actresses who has her career and happy married life going simultaneously well together. She also shared that Saif and she are on the same page as far as work and personal life goes and that he too would never expect her to give up her career for the sake of family. He also keeps telling her that if he’s going out to work then it would be selfish of him to not let her do the same. Sweet, isn’t it?
Kareena Kapoor Khan gives it back to her haters who questioned the actress’ integrity for not supporting the ‘Udta Punjab’ movement. The actress, in the latest interaction, lets her heart out on the ongoing issue of the film starring Shahid Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh and Alia Bhatt in the lead. “Do not misinterpret support just because I am not on social media. What about people who are not there? Are they supposed to be shunned because they are not hashtagging people?” she questioned. In the past few days, the world has gone berserk over the Censor Board for demanding as many as 89 cuts in the film, post which the makers took the issue to The Bombay High Court. The decision was eventually ruled in favour of the film with just one cut. Kareena was nowhere to be seen. Many raised eyebrows on the actress keeping mum on the uproar, however, she has now cleared the air saying that just because she is not hashtagging people doesn’t mean she doesn’t support the film. Well said, Begum!
Ever since she tied the knot with the Prince of Bollywood and Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena seems to be in a very happy and content space. The actress seems to have become more carefree and secure in her approach towards her otherwise super-competitive profession where every next actress is seen running a rat race, trying to reach the finish line first. And guess who does Kareena attribute her life contentment to? Her charming hubby, Saif. During a recent media interaction, Bebo candidly spoke about her beautiful equation with Saif and said that there is something common in their DNA and they know how to calm each other down. “We have similar likes, dislikes and tastes, and enjoy similar things in life. There’s something in our DNA..that we both connected. There is sweet and sour, it’s like chalk and cheese, and sometimes it’s the best thing. We have this calming effect on each other. I know how to calm him down and he knows how to calm me down.” The actress, who has completed more than one-and-a-half decade in the glam world, even admitted that until a decade ago, her life revolved around films and career but after her marriage to Saif, she has learnt to live her life to the fullest.
Kareena Kapoor, who has played diverse roles from a hippie in ‘Tashan’ to a breadwinner in ‘Ki & Ka,’ is ready to experiment with her looks but not to the extent of going bald to justify a character. Talking post her appearance at the Lakme Fashion Week, the diva spoke about experimenting with her looks and said that she is open to experimentation for fashion blogs, commercial films and other things as she believes in sticking to the character. However, she argues that experimenting just for the sake of experimenting is not her thing. While she holds that one has to do different styles or do strange things to their hair and make-up as per the requirement, she would never go to the extent of shaving off her hair even if the role demands it, as reported by IANS.
Now, this coming from the Begum of Bollywood and the queen of item numbers is shocking and interesting at the same time. Off late, we have seen Kareena Kapoor Khan making cameos (read doing item numbers) in big films like ‘Dabangg 2′, ‘Brothers’ and ‘Gabbar Is Back’ among others. Interestingly, her song-and-dance cameos have also been received well by the audience and her fans aren’t complaining either. However, Bebo says that the biggest credit goes to her husband, Saif Ali Khan, who has never stopped her from doing what she loves and enjoys doing. In her recent statement, Kareena said, “I have no qualms in doing item songs. For this, I would like to give all credit to my husband Saif Ali Khan. If Saif wouldn’t have given the permission then it wasn’t possible for me to do anything.” Isn’t this ‘Waaow’ guys?
There has been a lot of talk about Kareena Kapoor breaking her ‘no kissing’ policy post-marriage for R Balki’s ‘Ki & Ka’ where she stars opposite Arjun Kapoor. When she was asked about the same during a conversation with SpotBoye.com, she shared her views on how life changes for a person after marriage in India. She said one has to face a lot of restrictions after marriage and it appears as if you have sold your soul. However, Kareena was also quick to add that she is fortunate to have a husband like Saif Ali Khan who respects her profession and understands that if two people are playing a couple on screen, it is necessary for them to go intimate.
It has been quite a few months since Aamir Khan gave his take on intolerance in India while giving a speech at the Ramnath Goenka Awards in November last year. The actor caused quite a stir with his remarks about the “rising intolerance” in India. But the actor continues to face brickbats for the same. While few people from the film industry have criticized Aamir, Kareena Kapoor has come out in support of him. During a chat with DNA, the actress has opined that Aamir hasn’t said anything wrong as he was just addressing his wife’s fear. She is also quoted saying that the actor didn’t intend to cause any damage.
Unlike her contemporaries Kareena, loves discussing her family – the much talked-about Kapoor khandaan. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, the gorgeous actress, who is gearing up for the release of her next, ‘Ki & Ka,’ says, “Saif describes us as a crazy, Italian mafia family. There are always 30 dishes on the table and everybody is focussed on the food and drinks. My family is the best thing in my life and no matter which part of the world I am, I will always make it to birthdays and anniversaries. I feel most grounded and connected, when my grandmother (Krishna Raj Kapoor) is around.”
Kareena Kapoor Khan is gearing up for the promotions and release of her next, ‘Ki & Ka,’ but it seems like she is far from nervous about it. The confident actress is sure about her position in the industry and doesn’t feel threatened. In an interview with Hindustantimes.com, when asked if she would want to follow Deepika and Priyanka to Hollywood, Kareena firmly denied it. She said that Los Angeles wasn’t for her. Kareena then went on to praise Priyanka by saying that she was proud of the manner in which Priyanka had put India out there. However, she maintained that her priorities were different and that she didn’t see Hollywood as an avenue. She further asserted that she wants to be an actor, a wife and a lot of other things in life.
There are a whole lot of qualities people loook for while choosing a life-partner. But as far as Kareena Kapoor is conerned, she is very clear. During a conversation with Miss Malini, the actress showed no qualms in confessing that the first thing she looks for in a man is his looks. However, she was quick to add that a man has to be a combination of everything. She gave an example of husband Saif Ali Khan while praying his intelligence and culture.
