Kareena has a lot to celebrate like a cat that has swallowed the cream; she smacks her luscious lips and say’s, “Just when I was licking my wounds God above answered my prayers. Honestly, I’m delirious to think that I started 2009 with a whimper and ended it with a bang. Someone up there heard me.’’
Overwhelmed by the response to her new film. “Everywhere I go I am swamped by compliments for the role. The length of the role didn’t matter. I’m just glad to be part of a historic happening. When Raj Kumar Hirani and Aamir asked me to be part of their film I jumped at it. I knew the film would be special because of Raju and Aamir, and I was right. As far as our cinema is concerned Aamir is God.”
Reacting to the opinion that Kareena hardly has anything to do in the film Kareena says, “Who says I’ve nothing to do? I’m very part of the main drama. Would the story move forward if you remove my character?” Kareena is specially pleased by the compliments she has received for her pairing with Aamir. “Everyone in one voice thinks we look good together. I think Aamir and I make a fantastic pair. I’d love to do another film with him immediately, this time I don’t want share him with other pivotal characters.”
The incorrigible Bebo is looking forward to year ahead with confidence “2010 has a lot of promise. I sincerely wish the Midas touch continues. I’ll start the year with my idol, Shah Rukh Khan, with whom I’m travelling to Miami for RA 1. Then I’m going to be traipsing the globe with Saif in Agent Vinod. And, if Aamir keeps up his promise to me, the two of us will end up in a romantic film by the end of the year.’’
Looking back on the year, Kareena feels happy by the response to her performances in Kurbaan and 3 Idiots. “Both films are very precious to me. Kurbaan was intense, 3 Idiots was more fun. In 2009, I did films with all the Khans ... Salman, Aamir, Shah Rukh (I had a song with him in Billu) and of course Saif.” Jumping like a child, she asks, “Listen, is it wrong to love more than one Khan at a time? I’m guilty of just that. Shah Rukh and Gauri are my close friends. I love Saifu. And as for Aamir, well, what can I say? He’s the new Khan on my block.’’
Saif the love of her life will always be special about whom she says "Saif comes from a very cultured background; he is a man of the world. And he's seen so much of life; he's got his head very firmly on his shoulders. I can connect with this guy. He has a good sense of humour a charming man with a lot of culture. He always liked me on screen. He said I was someone he always wanted to meet."
