Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan believes the secret to her longevity in the film industry is striking a balance between commercial and alternative cinema. Kareena says that one should never get stuck to any one genre as that gets boring and there is the added risk of getting typecast. Her aim is to cater to all sorts of audience. “I am always proud of my glamorous image. One has to enjoy some commercial success. If I have done an Udta Punjab, then I have also done the Golmaal series. I have always tried to balance things out.
“To sustain in the film industry for 18 years one has to keep doing exciting work. I do films that suit my personality, my time limit. I do films that I like,” said Kareena. The actor says she has been a risk-taker right from the beginning of her career despite being a commercial heroine.
Her next release is “Veere Di Wedding”, a story about four female friends played by- Kareena, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania, and their trials and tribulations in the society. “It is a fun film and people are talking about women empowerment and feminism. The story is about four girls. The director came up with this concept. So what is wrong (in that) as there was a ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. This story is from the female point of view…that’s it!,” Kareena says.
