I'll star in all Vishal Bhardwaj films: Kareena

Jun 29, 2006 Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, June 30 (IANS) Kareena Kapoor, who stars in director Vishal Bhardwaj's latest film "Omkara", says she is going to star in all his movies.

"Director Vishal Bhardwaj and I have formed a mutual admiration society. We've made a pact. I'm going to feature in every single film of his. And if I don't fit into a film of his, he's just not going to make it, as simple as that," Kareena told IANS.

"I think 'Omkara' will be a new beginning for me as an actress. Everyone connected with the film will benefit. So will I."

She and boyfriend Shahid Kapur have just had a whale of a time doing live concerts all over the world.

"Shahid and I had such a blast during the concert tours. We shopped till we dropped. We came back to Mumbai with 10 suitcases. The customs guys at the airport looked at us as though we had lost it. Shahid and I also took time off to visit my aunt in Detroit. You could say it was our family visit together."

The comfort level with Shahid is so high and so constant you wonder when they're making it legal.

"Let him work for a while. I also have so much to do. I feel I'm just starting out. I can't tell you how excited I am about 'Omkara'."

She is working with Shah Rukh Khan in "Don", but in another project, it's John Abraham who will feature opposite Kareena.

"It's Soham Shah's film for Karan Johar. I'm excited about this because it's my return to Karan's banner after 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham' (K3G).

"Sure, a lot of water has flown under the bridge. And yes, we had a difference of opinion because of which I lost 'Kal Ho Na Ho'. But these are things of the past. Must we go on and on about them' We start this new Soham project in November."

Soham's film will offer Kareena an entirely new co-star in John. "Where are the really exciting co-stars for me, yaar'" she mock-groans.

Kareena has sure come a long way - from a girl who before the release of her first film "Refugee" said she wants to remain in salwar-kameez all her life and be another Madhubala, to the va-va-voom diva in K3G, and again back to the simple salwar-kameez gal in her latest film "Chup Chup Ke".

Chuckles Kareena, "My role in 'Chup Chup Ke' was short, but it was sweet. I liked the simplicity of the girl I played. I'm basically a simple girl in real life. It's showbiz that changed me into this glam girl. Not that I'm complaining. How many people can claim to be where I am'"
