Kareena Kapoor has resolved not to talk about beau Saif Ali Khan and her love life this year. This is because her older sister Karisma and her mom (Babita) feel that there has been too much focus on Bebo's personal life last year. They feel her personal life is overshadowing her professional life.
Bebo's family is particularly riled by speculations about the Saif-Kareena marriage. On Monday, the actress and Saif returned from their holiday in the Alps on Monday, and the Kapoor girl promised her mom that henceforth she'd concentrate on her career. Saif also wants to focus on his films and home production with Deepika Padukone, which releases this year. Now they'll only talk work.
Kareena admits, "I don't want to answer any questions about my personal or love life this year. My New Year resolution is to be completely work-oriented. In 2008, there was a lot spoken and written about my personal life, and that has upset people close to me. Let's talk about my films from now on. I have some good films coming up like Raju Hirani's 3 Idiots, Rensil
D' Silva's next (produced by Karan Johar), Kambakht Ishq, Main Aur Mrs Khanna and Agent Vinod." The actress wants to do different roles. "I want to do roles that I have never done before." She has worked with most reputed filmmakers in the country but she is still thirsting for more, "I would like to work with them all over again. One director that I am looking forward to is Shriram Raghavan who will direct Saif and me in Agent Vinod. I loved Shriram's Ek Hasina Thi. He has a great cutting-edge feel."
When told that her 3 Idiots co-star Aamir Khan had named her as the best actress he has worked with. Kareena says modestly, "It's the biggest compliment for me though I don't see myself like that. Aamir is the best actor I have ever seen."
She still hasn't seen his latest release Ghajini or any recent releases, "But one of my favorite Aamir films is Raakh. His burning intensity is etched on my mind. I have loved even Hum Hai Rahi Pyaar Ke, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Rang De Basanti and Taare Zameen Par. I plan to learn a lot from him now during our next stint, which resumes from tomorrow in Delhi."
She has worked with all the Khans Shahrukh, Saif, Aamir and Salman. Does she have a favourite there? "All of them are great actors with completely different acting styles so it would be difficult for me to choose. I do have a soft spot for Saif though. I think it's a achievement that I have worked with all three of them," she laughs.
