If there’s anyone who dares to speak her mind apart from Kangna Ranaut, it’s Kareena Kapoor Khan. Be it commenting on her past relationships, her current roles or the competition she faces with her contemporaries, the beauty has a solid answer for every question. In a recent interview, the actress spoke about her experience on working with Salman Khan for the third time in Bajrangi Bhaijaan and opened up about the way she feels about Shahid Kapoor’ s marriage and his performance in Udta Punjab. Other than this, the actress also shared her take on being constant pitted against other actresses. All in all, Bebo gave some rather interesting and candid answers, as always. Here are 10 best quotes by her which prove that she is back with a bang:
“People think that Salman would like to romance younger actresses but the fact that he is working with a married actress is a compliment”
There was a time when married actresses in Bollywood weren’t given enough preference. The same is changing now where hitched B-town beauties like Bebo, Kajol and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are ready to take over. When asked on what it was like to work with Salman for the third time, the beauty didn’t hesitate and said,” People think that Salman would like to romance younger actresses but the fact that he is working with a married actress is a compliment”
“Bajrangi Bhaijaan is going to be the biggest hit whether somebody likes it or not”
Bebo is extremely sure about the same and states that though the film is no Jurassic Park or Jaws, it will be successful nonetheless owing to Salman Khan and his and her outing o the silver screen for the third time.
“I have done two rounds with the Khans and the fact that they are still working with me, says something”
The actress maintains that she has achieved a lot in her Bollywood career so far and has had the opportunity to work with all the three Khans. To her credit, not many actresses have had a re-run with the Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir so kudos to you, Bebo!
“I have never asked any producer what film they are making. I have never told them that I want to be a part of any film”
Where many leading ladies often approach producers for roles, Bebo states that she has never done the same has she has faith in her talent. Basically, this actress is not the least bit insecure!
“I think I’m balancing commercial movies and some great roles”
Be it commercial roles or parallel ones, Bebo has aced both the genres with her impeccable talent. The actress says that it’s not a crime to be a commercial actress and ot’s something she can relate to, as she herself hails from a Bollywood family.
“I never go to see trials and previews because I am not fake”
Well we can certainly applaud Bebo for making a rather bold statement here. The beauty states that she doesn’t visit screenings and trials as she can’t “fake praise a film.” Here’s her statement, “I love watching movies on the flight and all. But I never go to see trials and previews because I am not fake. I cannot fake praise for a film. Also, I don’t like going and socialising. I prefer to see a film in a theatre. These days, for trial shows, you have to do hair and make-up because you have to pose for photos and then give bytes. What’s with this everybody going to each other’s trials”
“I am obsessed about my work but I am also obsessed about having a full life”
Bebo states that her priorities haven’t changed since marriage. The actress maintains that she wants to be on top of the game and yet have a family life. “Your life cannot be only your work. I am shooting for 25 brands, I am doing three films, but I still have time to read, travel, to unwind, and chat with Saif. So, no, my priorities haven’t changed. I am obsessed about my work but I am also obsessed about having a full life.”
“I am a very secure person and in a very secure space”
When asked on whether the number game bothers her, Bebo states that it never has. She is a very secure person in a very secure space, as she quoted. Well we totally are with the beauty on that one!
“My advice is that don’t take advice from anyone. Do what you want to do”
Kareena says that she doesn’t give advice to her hubby as she is nobody to do so. She further adds that she doesn’t take advice from anyone either. The actress encourages people to listen to their hearts and do what they wish to do. Well that has been Bebo’s way since the beginning so no surprises there!
“I missed an opportunity to work with Zoya Akhtar”
One would think that Bebo is not entirely speaking the truth when she says that she has no regrets in rejecting offers. But the same isn’t entirely true as the beauty doesn’t hestitate to name one. When asked on whether she had any regrets on giving up Dil Dhadakne Do, the actresssaid,” Just one. That I missed an opportunity to work with Zoya Akhtar, but it’s not her last film and definitely not mine. Not because of anything else, but because I think she is a wonderful girl and she’s just a brilliant director and I think her energy is just right.”
