Saif has not proposed to me till date: Kareena

Bollywood stars Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan talk about love, personal life and their new flick ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ in a free-wheeling chat with Swati Chaturvedi at her show Kahiye Janab. Here are the excerpts:

Q: Can you tell us about your role in your latest film?

Kareena: I feel in ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ my role is totally different from my earlier roles, which I essayed in films like ‘Ra.One’, ‘Bodyguard’ and ‘Golmaal’ in 2011. In these films, my role is more of a desi girl, but in EMAET, I have portrayed the role of a modern girl.

Q: What do you mean by desi?

Kareena: By desi, I mean to say the way your fans like to see you onscreen - in traditional Indian costumes – wearing Kurta Salwar and Dupatta etc.

Q: Are you really a desi girl?

Kareena: I am a good mix of both.

Q: Do you agree with Kareena? (Referring to Imran)

Imran: Yeah, she is a mix. But her ‘desipana’ is natural. However, she has now become international as Saif often takes her to Switzerland and other outdoor locations.

Kareena: Saif is also a desi boy and likes a traditional girl. I agree that he is too modern some times but loves to see me draped in a sari. You won’t believe; he sometimes gets upset with me if I attend parties too regularly.

Q Is he possessive about you?

Kareena: Not at all.

Q: Imran, are you happy that you don’t have an actress wife?

Imran: I feel more comfortable with my wife Avantika as she is not an actress.

Kareena: It doesn’t matter that you and your partner both are actors. You can always strike a good balance between your work and personal life.

Q: How do you handle physicality and ego with your co-actors onscreen?

Kareena: It does not matter much. However, when I am working with Saif, it hardly matters since both of us are in love with other so no ego comes in between.

Q: What about your onscreen chemistry with Kareena in this film?

Imran: I have been in the industry for 3 years but I have always wanted to work with Kareena. On the very first day of shooting, I was a little nervous as she is more experienced and successful than me in the film industry.

Q: Did you go to Harvard for any course?

Kareena: I am the only Kapoor girl, who is well-studied. I went to Harvard for only 3 months to attend a summer school. Prior to my entry in films, I always wanted to be a lawyer.

Q: According to you, who is the most talented actress in the industry?

Kareena: Kajol

Q Among your contemporary actors

Kareena: Priyanka is really talented.

Q: Any film in which you have career-deciding role?

Imran: Not yet. You can’t do much about flops and hits. You don’t have to worry about these things.

Kareena: Irrespective of the position where I stand today, I do admit that I have also given flop films in my career. You can’t ignore my flop films.

Q: Has Saif proposed to you?

Kareena: Saif has not proposed to me till date but media has put a lot of pressure on him.
