Kareena Kapoor has been shooting round the clock. First it was for Sohail Khan's Main Aur Mrs Khanna in Australia, thereafter she headed to Bangkok for IIFA in and then to Pattaya for Golmaal Returns. But the actress, who is devoted to her niece, Samaira Kapur (sister Karisma and brother-in-law Sanjay's daughter), flew in from for three days to spend three days with her.
Says Kareena, "I have been in Australia shooting for MAMK since over a month. After IIFA, I went to Phuket for the shooting of Golmaal Returns and Head&Shoulders ad. I missed Samaira and Lolo (her sister, Karisma) terribly so I flew all the way back to Mumbai for two days on June 17 to see my niece and sis. I was dying to give Samaira a hug and cuddle. Mom (Babita) was there in Melbourne with me but I haven't seen Sam and Lolo in a long time."
Kareena left Mumbai last night to head to Amsterdam for a show with Shahrukh Khan. Adds Kareena, "After the show I will go to London and spend a few days with Saif there while he's shooting for his home production and after that, I fly off to Los Angeles for Sajid Nadiadwala's Kambakht Ishq. Once that is complete, there is no break for me. After I return in August, I start shooting for Raju Hirani's next with Aamir."
Saif is miserable in London without Bebo. Kareena laughs, "We are missing each other. I haven"t met Saif since IIFA, where we met for only three hours. Now I will spend a couple of days with him in London after the Amsterdam show and that time will be ours alone..."
Kareena has no regrets about Tashan unlike co-stars Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan. She says, "My performance was appreciated and my looks and styling were the most talked about. My figure became a debate for national news! I am happy Tashan and what it gave me. Films doing or not doing well doesn't affect me. Success and failures are a part and process of life. Today I have the best lineup of films and it can't get better. I am happy with life...".
