I will work till I am 90, says Kareena
In Madhur Bhandarkar`s much awaited film, `Heroine` Kareena will be seen as a superstar. The film chronicles the various phases, she goes through as an actress – from a glamorous high life to a tragic downfall.
When asked if she fears that she will have to make place of other actress, Kareena said, "I haven`t thought of it as yet. And obviously I wish and hope that. I think I will be like Zohra Sehgal who would be working till 90…so tough luck. I am not going to give my place to anyone."
The story of the rise and fall of an actress there seems to be some similarity between Kareena`s yet-to-be-released `Heroine` and Vidya Balan`s hit `The Dirty Picture`.
On this, Kareena says, "I am not getting into anyone`s shoes. I am very much comfortable in my shoes and nobody fits into my size. I am not going anywhere. Heroine is not a dirty film…its completely different from `The Dirty Picture`. It is unfair to compare the two films."
`The Dirty Picture` was based in 80s and this (`Heroine`) is a modern day story. `TDP` was about an item girl, `Heroine` is about superstar. I have taken on this film because of the script and not to compete with anyone. I think one should stop making comparisons as it is useless," she said.
Also, Kareena is all set to rock with her latest item song `Halkat Jawani` from `Heroine` and she asserts that the song is not an answer to Katrina`s `Sheila Ki Jawani`. "No answer to anybody, don`t compare it with anybody.It is mine," Kareena said.
Meanwhile, Bhandarkar was all praise for Kareena. "Kareena has done fabulous job. And I am sure and I hope she gets a national award," he said. `Heroine` is set to release on September 21, which happens to be Kareena`s birthday.
