Kareena Kapoor Khan has finished 17 years in the industry this year. That is a kind of legacy everybody dreams of leaving behind. But now, Bebo is over all of this. Here is what she had to say to a leading daily,
“I think that the criterion hasn’t really changed. The aspect that has always remained constant is that I do films that entertain the audience. I don’t understand when people use tags such as ‘small role’, ‘big role’ or even a ‘commercial role’ It’s never been about that. Whether it was Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) or any other film, I have been part of films that had a good story which needed to be narrated. You want to be a part of a film that is morally right and is moving in the right direction. It is definitely important for me, and I have always been like that. A lot of people have asked me, ‘Why have I said no to a particular film?’ But I don’t think I would have got along with the people. I won’t say anything, but I will stay away.”
Bebo added, “Honestly, at this stage of my career, it is not about doing five films. I am not competing with anyone. I am over that phase. In fact, I don’t like it when my name is taken with anyone. Also after 17 years in the industry, I expect a certain amount of respect. I will choose what space I want to be in. Now, Rhea (Kapoor) and Sonam (Kapoor) are friends. I trust them. I will give my best and they will give me their best. That’s also important.”
Kareena hasn’t signed anything after Veere as she wants to take a break after the film and spend time with her son, Taimur.
