When a leading daily asked Kareena Kapoor about this nickname, she said, "The word in Marathi is used as a very powerful term. Actually it is associated with respect. Madhur and I share a very good rapport. He is a friend. I usually don't become friends with my directors. But Madhur is different." Kareena Kapoor also said that ever since Chandni Bar got released, she wanted to work with Madhur Bhandarkar.
When asked Madhur Bhandarkar about Kareena Kapoor's nickname Bai, he said, "Bai suits Kareena as it stands for a strong woman."
Hmm. Bai suits Kareena...do you agree with Madhur Bhandarkar?
