Salman has that kind of love for me as Karisma's sister, Kareena

Kareena Kapoor comes from a filmy family and is married to another established actor of Bollywod, Saif Ali Khan but the actress said that her life is not surrounded by people from showbiz and she has friends and close ones outside film industry which she cherish a lot. Bebo said that she always tries to keep her personal and professional life separate.

"The key is to realise that we are here to work in this industry. I'm not over-friendly with anyone, I don't get into anyone's personal space because I don't want people to get into mine. I have a life outside of films," Kareena told PTI.

Kareena’s personal life very often comes under media scanner but the actress wants her work to speak more than her personal life. "Some of my friends are from the industry but most of them are not. So that is a part of life that I cherish. I go to work and come back. I want to keep it like that - go to work, come home and let my work talk more than anything else”, quips Bebo.

Post marriage, Kareena has been a super busy actress with lots of films and brand endorsements, "Saif has been shooting for 'Bullet Raja' and I have shot for 'Dabangg 2' song and promoted 'Talaash'. I have also shot for eight brands since the wedding. We actors sign up brands then we forget that we have to give them four days each to shoot. I have been shooting every day. Work is my passion and Saif respects that," says Kareena.

‘Fevicol Se’ item number from ‘Dabangg 2’ has been a chartbuster and Kareena specially did it for Salman with whom she shares a warm relationship from the days when he worked with her elder sister Karisma.

"Salman and Karisma go back 12-16 years, they started with movies like 'Nishchay' (1992) and I used to be on the sets. I was 8 or 9 years old then. He has that kind of love for me, as Karisma's younger sister. He was friendly during 'Bodyguard' and he respects the kind of person that I am. You can see the warmth between us and that's what I love."

Salman Khan’s father Salim Khan praised Kareena for her performance as Rose in ‘Talaash’ and the actress is super thrilled.

"When a living legend like Salim saab, who has written such great films and characters, calls you, it's something else. In my decade long career, no one has given me the compliment that he has for 'Talaash'.

"He never called me after 'Jab We Met'. He said I have been studying your work, I think you are one of the best that we have, so please continue doing such roles. That's a great compliment." Ending the year with an Aamir-Khan starrer film, Kareena is set to begin 2013 with his nephew Imran Khan as well as Prakash Jha's 'Satyagraha'.

"I ended the year with Aamir, I'm going to start the year with Imran. Life's always a full circle, I've got to work with both. In January I start shooting for a film with Imran Khan and then I have 'Satyagraha' with Ajay Devgn. We start shooting for that on February 1."
