Off-screen or on-screen, Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan make for one of Bollywood’s most romantic couples. But whether she romances other actors in films or sizzles in saucy item numbers, Kareena says she makes sure she never gives her “liberal” husband a chance to be “possessive”.
“Saif is a very responsible man and he knows his responsibility. I have never given him a chance to be possessive. He is quite liberal in his thinking. Possessive is a very wrong word in a way. I could be more possessive than Saif,” the 32-year-old said.The couple got married in elaborate wedding celebrations on October 16, 2012 after a five-year relationship.Many feel love tends to fade away post marriage, but Kareena believes this is a cliche.
“I hope it never changes. I mean the cliches are always there – like things change after marriage, man changes after marriage – but these are all cliches. I think I am lucky because Saif is not a typical kind of Bollywood actor. That’s why I think it works for us better,” she said.While many actresses have limitations post marriage, Kareena says she will always do what she believes is right. Quitting acting is not even on her mind.
“I am an actor and I will always do what our part requires us to do. I think every actor does that and Bollywood is changing. We are quite progressive in our thinking. If I like a role and if it requires me to do certain thing, if I believe in it, I will do it. And if I think it’s not required, I’ll not do it.
“I have always been like this and it’s not so just now,” she said.
From doing films such as Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, 3 Idiots and Bodyguard to offbeat films such as Chameli, Dev, Fashion and Omkara, she has proved her mettle in the last 13 years.
Kareena, who made her Bollywood debut with Refugee, says it’s an actress’ duty to experiment.
