I believe in love, not in ‘Love Jihad’, Kareena Kapoor


Kareena Kapoor who is married to a Nawab, Saif Ali Khan only believes in the feeling of love and she is not in the favour of ‘Love Jihad’. Coincidentally, in her upcoming film, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, Kareena is playing a Brahmin girl falling for a Muslim boy.

"I believe only in the feeling of love," said Kareena, who is married to actor-filmmaker Saif Ali Khan, told IANS when asked about 'Love Jihad'. which is a Muslim concept of luring Hindu girls and convert their religious after marriage.

"Saif has a very broad perspective and he also shared his perspective on 'Love Jihad' (via an open letter). He married a Hindu, which is me, and we had a civil marriage," said the actress.

"I feel that love is something that you can't term. There is passion, there is lust, there are so many things. It can happen between two human beings," said Kareena.

"Now if somebody is Hindu and he or she starts loving a Muslim person, you can't stop them. You cannot ask somebody, 'Are you a Muslim or are you a Hindu?' and then fall in love. Love is a feeling, it's an emotion. That's why I don't believe in 'Love Jihad'. I believe in the feeling of love," added the 34-year-old actress.

Kareena Kapoor is looking forward to working with Salman Khan as she shares a great personal and professional relationship with the superstar.

"I am looking forward to working with Salman. We are like family. Before my marriage, he worked with me and now he is working with me after my marriage, so I am excited," said the actress who was seen with Salman in Bodyguard.

"I am playing a girl from Chandni Chowk in the film. I have huge connection with Delhi as I have done a lot of my films shooting here so I love the city," said the actress who has shot '3 Idiots' and 'Kurbaan' in the capital.

In her long successful career, Kareena has worked with many established directors and actors and now she is willing to work with new directors.  "I have always worked with big directors and I am still working with big directors like Rohit Shetty and Kabir Khan, but now I want to work with somebody who is fresh.

I worked with some young directors in the past. For instance, Shakun Batra in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu and I want to continue that," she said.
