Once reported to be sharing cold vibes with co-star Priyanka Chopra, actress Kareena Kapoor says she is a big fan of her colleague and likes her body of work and voice.
“I am a big fan of Priyanka and her voice. I could relate more to Priyanka because she is a damdaar (power-packed) actress, and I like her work,” Kareena told reporters here last night at an event.
Notably, Priyanka is all set to launch her debut music album In My City soon. Earlier, problems had cropped up between the two actresses, when during Koffee With Karan show Kareena made fun of Priyanka’s accent. Priyanka had then retaliated saying that she got her accent from where her (Kareena’s) boyfriend Saif Ali Khan got his.
Kareena is also appreciative of Deepika Padukone’s pairing with her beau Saif. Both have worked together in films like Love Aaj Kal, Aarakshan and Cocktail. “They make a fantastic pair. In Cocktail, Saif and Deepika were the heart of the film and so was the case in Love Aaj Kal. I like to see both of them on screen. In fact I also like Priyanka and Saif as a pair on screen. It is badhiya jodi (good pair),” she expressed.
Meanwhile, director Madhur Bhandarkar’s magnum opus starring Kareena in the lead, Heroine, releasing on September 21, revolves around the journey of an actress, the glamour and glitz surrounding her career and the dark side of stardom.
On her take on the much awaited movie, Kareena said, “Every kind of cinema is director’s world and it is his medium that we have to understand. Madhur’s world is not exactly candy floss, it is not just about being glamorous. Madhur likes to show the underbelly of life, whether it is Traffic Signal or Fashion.”
“The fact is that he has not shied away from showing the underbelly of where he is from, the film fraternity. The film marks the journey of a girl, it is the story of a declining superstar,” Kareena revealed. The actress also revealed quite a few differences between real and reel life heroine. “In real life I am very simple and honest, I like to spend time with family, I eat home cooked food. On screen we have to look glamorous, go for events and award functions. It is a difficult job but this the only thing that I know,” she said.
Kareena is also charged up about her other big film Talaash alongside Aamir Khan and Rani Mukherjee. Directed by Reema Kagti, the movie releases on November 30. “I cannot reveal much about the plot of the film and my role. The experience of working with Aamir, Rani, Reema and everyone was great. After 3 Idiots, I was very excited about working with Aamir. Also I would be working with Rani after a long time. I am very excited that all three of us are coming together,” she said.
Kareena had worked with Aamir in 3 Idiots, which was a blockbuster, and had earlier teamed up with Rani for Mujhse Dosti Karoge, which also starred Hrithik Roshan. The actress is also kicked up about doing political drama Satyagrah with Prakash Jha, where she will be seen playing a journalist. “I am very excited to work with him (Prakash Jha).It is a lovely role but I cannot talk about it, we start shooting for the film in January,” Kareena mentioned.
