Kareena Kapoor Khan has played a wide range of characters in her career, but there is a couple for which she is synonymous. There’s Poo, from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, and then there’s Geet, from Jab We Met. In an old interview with Film Companion, Kareena revealed that even though she was proud of the film, she simply went through movements during filming.
It was because she signed a contract with Tashan, which she thought would be a film that would take her to the next level. Kareena said she was destroyed when Tashan bombed, but was glad she did because she met her husband Saif Ali Khan while working on the film.
But she said that while working on Jab We Met, she began to act as if she was better than the project. “I work with Yash Raj Films, I make a film with Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan. I play the lead role. I became size zero, I lost weight, I take a bikini, I kill it. That was my atmosphere when I was filming Jab We Met, “said the actor.
Tashan was a major project of passion, she said. “This, I’m just shooting, I’m reporting my lines.” Yes, I’m having fun, but it’s a movie that will change my life and I’ll be like Uma Thurman, “she added.
Kareena continued, “Then fate had its own plans, life took its own direction. A lot happened during the filming of this film and Tashan, and we all went our own way, and this beauty of the film came out … When Tashan bombed and Jab We Met became what he did, I was shaken. I had been depressed for almost six months. I couldn’t believe it happened. “
She said she could never have predicted it, but Jab We Met changed her career and Tashan changed her life. Kareena is now one of the most sought-after female stars in the country. It was last seen in Angrezi Medium and will be seen next time in Laal Singh Chaddha. He is also preparing for his streaming debut with the Netflix adaptation The Devotion of Suspect X.
