Kareena Kapoor to present a mixed bag in 2011
New Delhi: Leaving behind a not-so-great 2010, Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor is all set to explore various genres in the new year with five films in the pipeline.
While `Ra.One` with Shah Rukh Khan is the biggest of all, there is also `Bodyguard` with `Dabangg` star Salman Khan.
The 30-year-old actress will be seen opposite boyfriend Saif Ali Khan in `Agent Vinod` and Imran Khan in `Short Term Shaadi`. She is also in talks to star with Aamir Khan in a yet untitled psychological thriller.
Considering she has one hit `Golmaal 3` and two flops, `We Are Family` and `Milenge Milenge`, in 2010, the new year sure holds a lot of excitement for the actress.
"There has been a conscious call to pick different genres from the films that excite me most. Earlier also I have done films like `Omkara` and `Chameli` which weren`t exactly mainstream. Last year`s `We Are Family` was a difficult role. Now 2011 would have a mix of different subjects and films as well," Kareena told reporters.
She took the industry by storm turning size zero for `Tashan` and Kareena says she won`t stop experimenting with her looks and body.
"Everyone would unanimously agree and state that this was one actor who tried hard. I have constantly tried to reinvent myself. One has to because there is no formula for what would eventually work and what wouldn`t. You can`t gauge that when you first take a plunge," she said.
The actress has now put the entire debate surrounding size zero behind her and wants the audience to see a different side of her.
"To get into a physical transformation is not an easy thing to do. When I came forward with a size zero figure, I enjoyed it. Now for my films to come, there is a different Kareena that audience will see. The one who is on the slightly voluptous side," she said.
Kareena is also proud of the fact that she is the only actress in the history of Indian cinema to have two films to her name which have done a business of over 100 crores. While `Golmaal 3` has raked in around 110 crores, `3 Idiots` had a total exceeding 300 crores.
"It is indeed amazing that two of my films have done such bumper business. Also, to have two of your films do such terrific business in quick succession would make any actor proud," said Kareena.
`Golmaal 3` released last Diwali, while `3 Idiots` hit screens in Christmas 2009.
"God has been kind to give me this success. Festive seasons are pretty much working for me. Now on Eid comes `Bodyguard` and then in Diwali it would be `Ra.One`. I am sure my lucky stint with festivals would continue in 2011 as well," said Kareena.
