Kareena follows Aishwarya’s footsteps

Kareena Kapoor tied the knot with her long time boyfriend Saif Ali Khan in October and she appealed her fans to address her with her beautiful new name, Kareena Kapoor Khan.

In the past, actresses stick to their original screen name despite getting married but today the scenario is altogether different. It all started with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. After getting married to Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya changed her surname to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Bebo also wants to do the same.

Kareena Kapoor Khan insists others to use her updated marital identity. "I keep telling people to please address me as Kareena Kapoor-Khan. Besides, that's my name now, isn't it? Although I've not converted, Saif is my husband and it's a beautiful surname to have," states the actress.

Post her wedding; Kareena received a grand response for her item number ‘Fevicol Se’ and she gives credit to choreographer Farah Khan for that, "Farah (Khan) has done a fabulous job with the whole routine. I've never performed a pelvic thrust before in my entire career so yes, I was looking forward to an encouraging reception. The tune is massy: something tailor-made for the aam janta!"

Kareena who is on a break will start shooting for Prakash Jha's Satyagraha next month. However, she says she doesn't have a dream role as such. So, which actors does she look up to? "I love Meryl Streep and Angelina Jolie. They are not only wonderful actresses but also strong personalities. In my filmi career, I think I've done almost everything but I want to continue acting till I'm 80!"
