Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor says she will continue to work till she turns 90.

In Madhur Bhandarkar`s much awaited film, `Heroine` Kareena will be seen as a superstar. The film chronicles the various phases she goes through as an actress -- from a glamorous high life to a tragic downfall.

When asked if she fears that she will have to make place for other actresses, Kareena said, "I think I will be like Zohra Sehgal who would be working till 90...So tough luck. I am not going to give my place to anyone."

Kareena denied that there was any similarity between `Heroine` and Vidya Balan`s hit `The Dirty Picture`.

"I am not getting into anyone`s shoes. I am very much comfortable in my shoes and nobody fits into my size. I am not going anywhere. Heroine is not a dirty film...Its completely different from `The Dirty Picture`. It is unfair to compare the two films.

"`The Dirty Picture` was based in 80s and this is a modern day story. `TDP` was about an item girl, `Heroine` is about a superstar. I have taken on this film because of the script and not to compete with anyone. I think one should stop making comparisons as it is useless," she said.

Also, Kareena is all set to rock with her latest item song ? `Halkat Jawani` from `Heroine` and she asserts that the song is not an answer to Katrina`s `Sheila Ki Jawani`.

"No answer to anybody, don`t compare it with anybody. It is mine," Kareena said.

Meanwhile, Bhandarkar was all praise for Kareena.

"Kareena has done fabulous job. And I am sure and I hope she gets a national award," he said.

`Heroine` is set to release on September 21, which happens to be Kareena`s birthday.
