Kareena Kapoor: She is a star who has grown strength- to-strength as an actress and Kareena Kapoor Khan says she has always been comfortable in her own zone. The actress will soon be seen in “Veere Di Wedding”, which marks her first flick after the birth of son, Taimur.
Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is regarded more as a contemporary than a senior by Alia Bhatt and Sonam Kapoor, credits her confidence in her 18-year-long career to have helped her gain the respect of these Actresses. “I think I have always carved a place for myself.
Times change, generations change, people come and go. But I think it’s maybe because of my confidence. It’s in the way one carries themselves. That’s very important. “I take it as a compliment but I think I have always been pretty much in my own space. Right from ‘Refugee’ till ‘Veere Di Wedding’,” the actor told PTI in an interview.
Kareena also made a comeback at the recent Lakme Fashion Week Summer / Resort 2018 when she appeared as the showstopper for the “Nudes Reinvented” collection of the great finalist Anamika Khanna.
The star said “Veere …” was not the romantic quintessence of Bollywood with which her filmography is full and that’s why she took the project. “It’s a different kind of movie.
It’s a story of four friends. It’s not the typical boy-meets-girl romance which I think I’ve done so much of. So I thought this should be different.
“It’s a small film, made by women. The producers are women – Rhea (Kapoor) and Ekta (Kapoor). I think it’s a special film and people will appreciate it.”
Women across the world are raising their voices seeking equal opportunities. Asked if time is here when the representation of women in working spaces would increase, Kareena said female artistes have been doing phenomenal work for ages and now they are unstoppable.
“I think I’ve always worked with some amazing women directors, I’ve worked with Reema Kagti, she’s a woman, and she did a great movie, ‘Talaash’.” There’s Zoya Akhtar, there’s Rhea as a producer. There are many doors open now especially in the Indian film fraternity, “she said.
