No More Size Zero, God Forbid!: Kareena Kapoor
Kareena Kapoor dishes on her new "leaner" look for Farhan Akhtar film
She may have brought size zero into fashion but Kareena Kapoor had shed that for a more wholesome look. Now, Bebo is shedding the kilos again for a new film but says she will never go back to the size zero days. "No Size zero, God forbid! But I need to look leaner especially since my co-star is one of most sinewy guys in our cinema,” laughs Kareena.
The co-star she is referring to is Farhan Akthar who she is co-starring with in shoot Dev Benegal’s Bombay Samurai. The actress is getting ready to undergo intense training to look fighting fit for Benegal’s film which begins in May.
Meanwhile, Kareena is also thrilled to work with an international crew who has shot ads with the likes of Eva Mendes and Eva Longoria, as part of an ad campaign for ice cream brand Magnum. The actress shot her first ad on Sunday. To ensure international standards, the entire team was flown into Mumbai from New York for the ad. To ensure that Kareena looked her international best, young designer Tanya Ghavri -- who has been working sartorial miracles on Sonam Kapoor and Ilena d’Cruz -- was roped in to do her look for the ad.
Taking a break from the very stylish ad-shoot, Kareena said: “It’s amazing to work with international brands and teams. Yes, I am shooting an ad with the crew that did the ads for Eva Mendes and Eva Longoria. Their style of working is very different from our own very talented ad-makers.”
About not having her favourite designer Manish Malhotra on board, Kareena says: “Manish is family. There is no question of replacing him. I just wanted to try another stylist for this ad. We all need to work with different people, experience new strains of creativity. Or we stagnate. And to me stagnation is death.”
