It’s been more than 21 years since she first appeared on the big screen in J P Dutta’s Refugee. And Kareena Kapoor Khan is still going strong. Kareena stands out in an industry where actresses are said to have a “shelf life”. Tearing apart that sexist stereotype, the Jab We Met actress has been ruling the marquee. That’s not all. She’s still a hot favourite with the brands and rakes in massive numbers on social media. In an exclusive interview with us, the actress revealed what keeps her going.
“Just the idea of believing in myself. I know it’s been 21 years but I know there’s going to be another 21 years because I’m confident about it,” she beams. Says she, “I know I have to make it happen. Maybe fewer films because of the children but I know I want to keep doing something new and it’s time to try something different. It’s all about my confidence. Be it walking the ramp in the different phases, like when I was pregnant, or I had just delivered, or being seven months into giving birth, the idea is to be super comfortable in my skin, look super good and be confident. It’s my way of sending out a message to all women that confidence can take you places.”
Kareena Kapoor Khan also revealed how she’s handling social media. “I’m still getting used to the social media drill. But I’m enjoying it. I love taking my selfies and putting them up. I’m having my fun. I don’t read comments and I don’t want to know what people are saying. I don’t want any negativity on my page. If people are negative, I don’t want to read about it. Don’t come to my page because I just want to have fun. Simple,” she says.
