Kareena Kapoor is one busy bee these days, besides all her filming commitments she is also getting ready to burn up the stage at this years IIFA in Bangkok. But with rehearsals, ads, shooting for Main Ur Mrs Khanna plus 4 other projects and getting ready for Kambakht Ishq, Kareena is getting almost no sleep.
She said, “I’ve five films in various stages of production. Then I’ve nine endorsements for which I’ve to shoot ads round the year. Plus I’ve all these stage shows that require rehearsals. I can’t seem to find the time to do anything properly.”
Currently she is in Melbourne working on Main Aur Mrs Khanna with Salman Khan and then its off to Bangkok for her performance at IIFA. “I’ll finish shooting here, then head to perform at the IIFA. In fact, I’m working so hard that I hardly get proper sleep. I feel like I haven’t slept for ages. Here in Melbourne I’m rehearsing for IIFA at nights and shooting during the day. Am I overworked? I’m exhausted. But what choice do I have? I’ve decided to take my live performances as seriously as my movies and endorsements.”
She added, “I’m performing a medley of my songs from Jab We Met and Tashan. Gone are the days when I’d go on stage with just a little practice. Now I want to be my best in every stage performance.”
Besides Melbourne and Bangkok, Kareena will also be traveling to London to see boyfriend Saif Ali Khan and then on to Los Angeles for her next film Kambakht Ishq: “I’ll be away from home for more than three months at a stretch. I miss home. I miss my family. I’ve never been so much out of Mumbai.”
Saif is in London working on the first film for his banner. The film stars Deepika Padukone and is directed by Imitaz Ali. Contrary to reports Bebo is not upset that she is not part of the movie, “I joked at the Stardust awards about not being in Saif’s first production and everyone took it seriously. Honestly, I enjoy meeting him outside Mumbai. At least we can have some privacy. At home me and Saif can’t even go out for dinner without people staring at us, constantly judging our behaviour.”
About the fact that Deepika is currently seeing Ranbir Kapoor, her cousin she said, “I’m so happy for them. I hope they’ll be happy together.”
She went on and praised Ranbir saying, “It feels so nice to have another Kapoor from my generation doing so well. He was fantastic in Saawariya. He’s here to stay. I feel a sense of pride and belonging for him. The Kapoors and Khans are rocking the industry.”
