‘Some films won’t do 150 crore, but will be remembered’: Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has appeared in mega-grossers like ‘Bodyguard’,’Singham Returns’ and ‘3 Idiots’, has said that there are some films that won’t be huge grossers at the box office, but will be remembered for its story. One such film, she says, is Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Udta Punjab’, also starring Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.

The actress was quoted as saying “Udta Punjab is a brilliant film. I loved the story. It’s one of those films where you don’t have to do too much to get your emotions out. When Abhishek was narrating the film to me, I didn’t know whether I wanted to cry or what else I wanted to do. The first thought was I want to do the film at any cost”

“There are some films which won’t do Rs 150 crores, but will be remembered for its story. Udta Punjab is one such film. People will talk about the content more than the box office figures.” she said.

Kareena also added that she hasn’t been paired opposite Shahid in the film “It’s a three track film. Alia, Shahid and me aren’t paired together but we are part of the same drug drama.”



  • Kareena is busy doing films like Singham or Bajrangi where she has 10 minutes role ! And here she is giving knowledge ..lol

  • watched HAK yesterday night. It was a mindblowing movie with stellar performances .A must watch. Sadly it failed to do good at boxoffice but will always be remembered. Awarapan & HAK are best movies of Emraan. Love frm srkians

  • Some movies even collected more than 100 crores would not be remembered like happy new year. ..One of the worst movie i hv ever seen in my entire life along himmatwaala, teesmaarkhan nd many more. ……

  • True…. Some wannabe critiK will always remember LooTera more than some some crappy 170cr plus grossers like Jadoo 3 or Bong Bong…!

  • People have to watch it first (which reflects in the collections) to talk about and remember the film. Online audience/classes may talk about such films but a large part of the masses would ignore them.

  • For me Talaash beats 90% of the crappy films in the 100cr club barring classics like Ghajini, Dabangg, 3 idiots, Singham, Pk, Dhoom 3, ETT and TWMR…!

  • Content Rich Billu FAN may not cross 100cr club but to lungiwales it will still be much better than crapgiri films like Ratoon or Jab Tak Hai Mojo or Con 2 or Lungi Express or Crappy New Year…!

  • For the first time i completely agree with Kareena Kapoor . There are many movies which have been flops or disasters but have gained cult status over the years .
    Cult movies of Bollywood Stars that were flops :
    1. Hrithik – Lakshya and Guzaarish
    2. Aamir – AAA and 1947 Earth ( I have not seen Earth but it was hugely appreciated) .
    3. Ajay – The Legend of Bhagat Singh, Omkara, Zakhm and Company .
    4. Akshay – Sangharsh
    5. SRK – Swades
    6. Salman – AAA and Khamoshi ( Some people say it is the Best movie of SLB) .
    7. Ranbir Kapoor – Rocket Singh Salesman of the Year
    8. John Abraham – Madras Cafe
    9. Ranveer Singh – Lootera
    10. Saif Ali Khan – Ek Hasina Thi

  • Udta Punjab is one of my most awaited movies in 2016 . Abhishek Chaubey has given two good movies Ishqiya and Dedh Ishqiya . The cast of the movie is solid with Shahid, Alia, Kareena and Daljit Dosanjh . UP is based on Drug Trafficking in Punjab . I have heard that Alia is playing a Drug Addicted Girl, Shahid is playing a Singer, Kareena is playing a News Journalist and Daljit is playing a Police Officer . According to Narcotics Control Bureau Punjab has the most number of Drug cases in India in 2015 . 50 % of Cases are from Punjab and being a Punjabi this is very shameful . This movie will do Bumper business in Punjab . I have heard that this movie will clash with Airlift on 22nd Jan 2016 which i don’t want at any cost . Airlift is based on the Biggest Evacuation ever done in History of Mankind . UP is also looking solid and something different . I want both these movies to get solo releases so that they will not affect each other’s business .

  • Well said.last 7 emmy films hvnt even crossed 40cr and all hv flopped miserably but will still b remembered forever bcz of the torture headache they hv given to the audiences

  • opposite way of it…
    some movies won’t be remembered..but still be able to do more than 150 crores….
    note: there is nothing to relate with bajrangi bhaijaan :D

  • Desperately waiting for Udta Punjab,Shahid Kapoor’s look is killer!

    Hope you do more such meaningful roles rather than playing sidekick to superstars as in singham returns.
    Don’t think you will have a meatier role in bajrangi Bhaijaan too as the film is mainly about Salman and the little pakistani girl.

  • bajrangu bhaaijan will earn more than 220 cr n will be remembered as well…
    some pseudo calling bodygaurd bad film… grow up… it was ausm entrtainer from frst to last minit n had evry thing…

  • Like ay

    She Already Knows ki udta Punjab won’t Do 150 .LOL
    OH Karina k Sath Amir ya salman nhii hena :P
    & 3idiots , S returns etc etc m tumhra Kya Contribution Tha :P

    First give a 100 Cr on ur own then talk about 150 ..! hehe

  • If people dont watch the film, how will they remember it LOL.
    Two types of movies are never forgotten and always talked about
    1.Biggest Blockbusters (Sholay, 3 Idiots, Dabangg, PK, Kick)
    2.Biggest disasters (RGV ki aag, Himmatwala, Humshakals)
    The rest of the films popularity depends on the quality.

  • Movies like CE, HNY will not be remembered at all. There is not even a single character in those films or scene which can be called classic or memorable.

    People will remember the following characters and their films forever:
    Gabbar Singh
    Chulbul Pandey
    Don (Amitabh Bachchan)

    What will CE be remembered for? Tangaballi? And only two characters were interesting in HNY- Abhisheks and Bomans characters. And I dont even remember their names.

  • ohh wow.
    the movie seems different from regular bollywood movie. Abhishek is good director..excited to see both shahid n kareena but not alia

  • Kareena Kapoor has said those beautiful lines on auspicious occassion of ‘ 8 Years Of Awarapan ‘ !!.

    So true!

    Awarapan is the movie that will be remembered forever till time immemorial!!

    Timeless brilliance of Mohit and Emraan ‘s hardwork .

    8 Years Of Awarapan is trending Worldwide and In india since past 12 hrs.

  • If Shahid Kapoor is there then I couldn’t miss that at any cost.

    Also kareena wants to say about Epic Mega experimented project RA ONE .

  • waiting for udta punjab
    other than shahid ,alia and kareena it also has dilijit dosanjh
    he is a huge punjabi movie star. boi quoted punjabi movie industry as one man industry
    his latest punjabi film has minted more than 5 crores in two days
