Mumbai: Actress Kareena Kapoor has admitted that she loves being called sexy. In an interview to a leading daily, the bindaas actress said “ I love being called sexy. But then I`m equally charged about being recognised as a good actress. In my case, I first won notices for my work and then when the size zero phase happened, people started noticing my physical attributes. To me, the important fact is that I have got recognition as an actor. Now being called pretty, sexy, hot, powerful or any such thing is also flattering."
The actress’s sex appeal has always been discussed at regular intervals and she was recently named the sexiest actress of Bollywood.
The hottie, who scorched the screen in a bikini in films like ‘Tashan’ and ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ has now decided to not wear bikinis on screen. When asked why, the actress stated, “The bikini is a highly overrated garment. For me it has lost its` novelty. I have worn it twice on screen. In ‘Tashan’ and in ‘Kambakkht Ishq’. However my fans preferred me in ‘Jab We Met’,’ 3-Idiots’ and ‘Golmaal-3’ where I stayed steered clear of exposing. I don`t have the patience to go through the whole regimen that needs to be in place for your body to look bikini-perfect. So I`ve decided that I will not wear a bikini on screen again."
Does boyfriend, actor Saif Ali Khan, approve of her wearing bikinis on screen? , "Saif likes me in a bikini. He has no issues with it. Saif actually prefers me glamourous. He liked me in Kambakkht Ishq; he thought I was very hot in it. He says that it is his personal choice but he doesn`t necessarily want me to abide by it. Saif likes it when I use a bit of make-up and dress fashionably rather than when I step out looking like a plain-Jane” says Bebo.
The actress, however, will be seen glamorous avatar in her upcoming film ‘RA.1’. Says Kareena, "The songs of RA.1 are hot, but in Bodyguard there is no skin show. In Agent Vinod too there is more style and pizzazz than any actual exposure. In Short Term Shaadi I`m playing a bohemian character."
