Kareena Kapoor and her beau Shahid have been glued to their TV set for the last few months.

The couple has been manically watching DVDs of the American TV show, Prison Break. Kareena, who is currently shooting an item song for Lovely Singh's Kya Love Story Hai, says, "Prison Break has rocked my world. It's simply awesome."


She says Shahid and her got hooked on to the show thanks to sister, Karisma. "I started watching it on DVD because of Lolo. She has a huge collection of DVDs, including TV shows like Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives and other American shows. Lolo is quite passionate about wat-ching them.

Whatever shows don't air here she buys DVDs of them. I started watching Prison Break last year when I was on a break from work. I was doing nothing so I put on one episode and the rest, as they say, is history!"

Kareena says that Shahid and she are so hooked that they carry their DVDs with them where ever they travel.

"Last year, we went for a show in Bali and landed at 8 pm. We reached the hotel at 9.30 pm and switched on the DVD player and watched till 6.30 am! We were that hooked!"

Run baby, run!

What Kareena finds exciting about the show is that, "It's emotional and heart-wrenching but also a fast-paced thriller.

It's the story of two brothers who have been framed for murder and how the younger brother breaks into the prison to save his elder brother. The rest of the story is about how they are on the run."

Would she act in a TV serial like that if it were to be made in India? "No, but I would want someone to make a film on it," says Kareena, before leaving to shoot for her song, Jab jab dil se teri in Kya Love Story Hai.

After wrapping up the shoot, she leaves to start shooting for Imtiaz Ali's next film with Shahid in Patiala and then Yash Raj's Tashan with Akshay Kumar. "This year, I have no time for breaks," says Bebo.

What's Prison Break?

Convinced that his wayward brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) was wrongly convicted of the sensational murder of the Vice President's brother (which landed him on Fox River State Penitentiary's death row), a desperate Michael Scofield masterminds an elaborate plan to free Lincoln by pulling off the ultimate Prison Break.

Aided by an intricate tattoo of the prison's blueprints covering his upper body, Michael aligns himself with various people and begins his quest for the truth. The brothers and six other inmates ultimately escaped from Fox River.

Outside the prison walls, the escape truly begins as the convicts race for their lives and the hidden cash - while trying to avoid being captured by the authorities.

The pursuers are led by vengeful prison guard Captain Brad Bellick (Wade Williams) who will stop at
nothing until the escapees are captured or killed.
