Kareena Kapoor Khan Hopes To Be a Mom in Two Years!
Bebo opens up about motherhood and children!
In an exclusive interviews with Subhash K Jha on DNA, Kareena Kapoor Khan reveals her big plans with her career and family. On a career high once again with the success of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Kareena talks about her upcoming films, her growing interest in character-driven roles and her views on motherhhod.
Though her own role in Bajrangi Bhaijaan was rather small, she says. "To use a cliché, there are no big or small roles. Only big and small actors. I did the film because of Salman and director Kabir Khan, and because it was being released for Eid. The very fact that I got the chance to part of a film like Bajrangi Bhaijaan is enough of an incentive for me. And yes, I am not around in the film, in a mini skirt dancing around trees. Doing all that bores me now. Besides, Kabir Khan would never write a role for a woman that is regressive or decorative. About that sequence where I catch hold of Salman’s hand and take him to my father, Salman’s father told me it’s the backbone of my character. So I am happy to have done the film."
She also unabashedly says that her favourite co-stars are Salman, Aamir and Ajay Devgn! She says, "I’ve shared brilliant films and wonderful times with them. I’ve done such diverse work with each of them.And I’ve grown up in front of them. They were all my sister Lolo’s co-stars. Salman has given nine hits with Lolo. Ajay has done dozens of films with her and Aamir gave his career’s biggest hit Raja Hindustani with Lolo. And I was there to see all these shootings."
With Udta Punjab and R. Balki's unnamed film coming up next, Kareena confesses, "I told Saif I need to be on my own for at least four hours a day, lock myself away and get into Balki’s character. This character challenges me like none recently."
When the interview veered to the topic of motherhood and the biological clock, Kareena says pointedly," Not right now. I am not ready. And you know me. Until I am ready, I won’t do anything. Two years from now, I’ll be a mom!" She adds further, "Arrey, women have children at 40. I’ve a long way to go. I will definitely have my own children. I’ve always done what I wanted to. I wanted to be a star-actor, then I wanted to get married, have a home. I’ll be a mother. And I’ll continue to act."
