After Kareena Kapoor made headlines with her bikini bod in Tashan, she has now donned a swimsuit for her upcoming film Kambakkht Ishq. Bebo is not afraid of being a sex symbol, "From my generation, I am the first actress who is a combination of talent-cum-glamour. How many actresses of my time are not just performers but can also carry off hot sexy outfits with equal ease?" She says her beau Saif loves her sexy avatar, "Saif's extremely proud that I can dress in simple cotton Indian clothes and act in Omkara and carry off backless swimwear in Kambakkht Ishq, with equal ease."
However she isn't fighting for the sex-symbol titles, "I am not aiming for any title. If people want to give me the hottest sex symbol title tag, it's their choice. For me, it's all about what the script demands. My wearing hot outfits are not intentional. I don't wear them to get a certain tag but because the story demands such outfits. I can't dive into the ocean in a pair of jeans or a frock, can I?"
Lolo wore a swimsuit in her very first film while Kareena started wearing them much later in her career. "Glamour is in Karisma's blood. Our grandfather Raj Kapoor, projected heroines in a glamorous and sexy manner. So why should I shy away from it?" When asked which of her contemporaries from Bipasha Basu and Priyanka Chopra looked better in swimwear, she turns diplomatic, "I am the wrong person to ask such things. I wouldn't like to comment on anyone's personal attributes. I am choosy, not just with my scripts but also with my comments these days."
