Open to do intimate scenes if script demands: Kareena Kapoor Khan
Mumbai: Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan says that marriage has not changed her perception towards roles in films and she is open to do intimate scenes if the script demands.
"Marriage has nothing to do with the kind of roles or such things... I fail to understand why people associate love or marriage with your career," Kareena said in an interview here.
Kareena had done some intimate scenes in Vishal Bhardwaj`s `Omkara` with Ajay Devgn and there was also a kissing scene with Aamir Khan in `3 Idiots`.
In Prakash Jha`s recently-released film `Satyagraha`, there was a romantic sequence between Kareena and co-star Ajay Devgn. However, Kareena reportedly refused do the scene.
"It was all media reported. Whatever the script requires, I do it. But in a film like `Satyagraha` I feel it was not required. It was not a romantic film that we need to have it (kissing and intimate scene)...It was more about the fight of a common man against the system," Kareena said.
When asked if her husband actor Saif Ali Khan had seen `Satyagraha`, she said, "No. He does not watch films much."
Saif and Kareena tied the knot last October after a five-year courtship.
"I don`t feel overburdened by responsibilities. My priority has always been my family. I have always balanced my personal and professional life and I will continue to do so," she added.
Kareena is happy with the response she is getting for
her latest film 'Satyagraha'.
"I am trying to add variety in my work and 'Satyagraha' is not a regular film. I am happy with the kind of response we are getting for the film. It shows that things are changing today and people are ready to accept film with good content," she said.
The film released on August 30 and raked in over Rs 50 crore at the box office so far.
'Satyagraha' reflects the uprising of the middle class against a corrupt and unjust system and how a turn of events leads to a movement to challenge the status quo. It is the story of a man who is a firm believer of Gandhian principles.
When asked if a film can bring about a change in the society, she said, "Cinema is not meant to do something, the government must do something. We are actors, we are not politicians. It is a bonus if there is an inspirational feeling or solution. Ultimately it is a film so it is meant to entertain people."
The political drama film directed by Prakash Jha featured Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Manoj Bajpayee, Arjun Rampal, Amrita Rao and Kareena in the lead.
"Considering the kind of films he (Prakash Jha) makes, he is quite opposite of that in real life. He makes us at ease, comfortable and relax. Though this film seems to be of heavy subject, it was fun doing it," she said.
Kareena, who shared screen space with Big B for the third time, after 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham' and 'Dev', says, "He is a living legend and a great actor I have worked with him in the past as well. It is always an honor to share screen with him. Our families have known each other since long time. Whenever we had free time in between the shoot, we all used to chat about various things. It was fun."
The actress will next be seen opposite Imran Khan in 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein', for which she is shooting and then will pair opposite Hrithik Roshan in 'Shuddhi'. She will also be doing a special appearance in Saif Ali's upcoming film 'Happy Ending'.
