Kareena happy with her career and marriage as she turns 33

Kareena Kapoor Khan believes that those days are long gone in Bollywood when a heroine lost her popularity on getting married. Kareena doesn’t believe her career was ever adversely affected after she tied the knot with Saif Ali Khan.

After her marriage in 2012, she acted opposite to Aamir Khan in the flick ‘Talaash’. She acted in ‘Satyagraha’ along with the stalwarts Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn. Kareena also did the hit item song ‘Fevicol’ in the Salman Khan starrer ‘Dabangg 2’. Her much anticipated film ‘Singham Returns’ is all set to release on this Independence Day.

In an interview to PTI, Kareena stated, “I am happy and proud that even after marriage I am working with Ajay and Salman... getting offered big-budget commercial films. Being married is not a crime and it has nothing to do with my career. Hindi movies are changing. Today it’s all about good actors, not about young and old. I am happy to be married and 33.”

She also added that, “I am busier after marriage. I have been so busy for the last five months that Saif is like ‘I am not getting enough time with my wife’ So, I have decided that after this I am going to take a break for one and half months and travel with him.”

In the upcoming film ‘Singham Returns’ the trio of Rohit Shetty, Ajay Devgn and Kareena reunites after ‘Golmaal’ and its successful sequel ‘Golmaal 3’. The association has been wonderful, as the Bollywood diva recalled, “It is an exciting journey with Rohit and Ajay. We have worked together in so many films. Rohit has given me very successful films. When he offered me this film I could not say no as he is the biggest director in the country. After a long time people will see me in this role where I play a very spunky girl.”

Speaking about her choice of films, the candid diva said, “I am a commercial actress. It is a part of me. I am both a star and an actress. I can’t be just doing off-beat films. Moreover it is not about doing off-beat movies, it is about great script. Having said that, I feel big budget films are something that I can’t live without.”

When asked about her future projects, the actress replied, “I want to work with new directors. I want to do films that I believe in. That is why for the last three months I have listened to 25 scripts. I am going to take a call.”
