Kareena Kapoor has always been the talk of the town. Most recently she was on news because of her close relationship with the handsome hunk Saif Ali Khan. The both were spotted very frequently in pubs and hotels and appeared very comfortable with eachother in public. Lets hear from the actress herself about her relationship with Saif. Or is she is still in love with Shahid Kapoor?
Those Kapoor colour eyes look back to say, ďYes.Ē Sheís career driven, sure.. but has had her speed breakers. The Bachchans talk of professionalism but neither Sr or Jr do a film with her. Their loss..when the tables turn some day, who knows?
Anyway, she refuses to discuss the Bís or the Sís. She offers soya chikki instead.. and wants to know what Iíve been up to. Certainly not anything earth-shaking. So hello gal, sorry but Iím here on the 11th floor on a work day afternoon to stand in a q for her aís . Answer right now KK.. which she finally does.. to the extent that she can without stepping on anyoneís heart:
Define your relationship with Saif Ali Khan.
Thereís great chemistry between us.
What yes? Heís a great co star, a friend.. Iíve known him for a while of course.. but I got to know him really well only when we were shooting for Tashan in Ladakh..we hung out together.. today we hang out at coffee shops and restaurants. Is that a crime? So much noise was made about us being together at a Delhi discotheque. With my brother-in-law (Sanjay Kapur) there, what do you think we were doing? Eating dinner, laughing and hanging out.. ďHeís (Saif Ali Khan) a great co star, a friend.. Iíve known him for a while of course.. but I got to know him really well only when we were shooting for Tashan in Ladakh..we hung out together.. today we hang out at coffee shops and restaurants. Is that a crime?Ē
Didnít you delete photos of Saif and you at this restaurant?
Sanjay was upset because we werenít being allowed our privacy.. so he and I.. and the others asked the photographer.. to please allow us our evening out.
Is Saif Ali Khan boyfriend material?
What? (Pause) Ha, ha, ha.
What does that mean?
It means I just went ha ha ha.. give me a break.. Khaled.
Itís Khalid. What about Shahid Kapoor and you now?
What about Shahid Kapur and you now?
Weíve been together for four and a half years.. and things between us are just not the way they are being reported. I will not say anything to anyone.. I am all set to promote our film Jab We Met .. itís really a lovely romantic film.. but Iíll be making it very clear, ďNo personal questions please.Ē
Itís being conjectured that everything thatís going on is a publicity stunt.
Please Khaled.. do I need this kind of publicity? Am I nuts? Grandpa (Raj Kapoor) believed even bad publicity is good publicity. But that was another era.. I think all the rumours will soon become boring.
How would you describe Shahid Kapoor?
Heís a fabulous human being, mature and stable. If a question mark is being placed over our relationship, heís bound to be upset. It has to be sorted. ďWeíve been together for four and a half years.. and things between us are just not the way they are being reported. I will not say anything to anyone..Ē
Ever been in love?
Yes. Itís a beautiful feeling which remains in your heart.. forever.. itís someone you love forever.
Does this mean Shahid Kapur?
Have some chikki.. itís soya .. good for you.
Okay, I get the message. I believe youíve changed majorly.. stopped being a vegetarian.
Please.. Iím pure vegetarian.. no eggs even. Someone wrote that I was seen eating chicken pizza. How funny is that? The chicken must have been frying in the reporterís head.
What! No way. Iíve seen men drink so much that Iíve no taste for booze.
You were spotted swimming with Saif at the JWMarriott!
Please! If I were to go around swimming in hotel pools.. it would only be at Las Vegas or St Tropez.
Whatís your image right now?
You tell me. Iíve never been more serious about my career. Iím endorsing seven brands. If I donít take on any old stuff that should be a plus point.. Iím really focusing on films in which I have something to do. Iím back at Yash Raj with Tashan .. and Iím in Golmaal 2 which should be fun. There are two strong projects under discussion.. (whispers – whispers into my ear) But wait, let them be finalised..Khaled.
Please Bebo, itís Khalid.
