1. How sister Karisma Kapoor inspired Kareena Kapoor Khan to be an actor
When I came back home from boarding school, Karisma had just started acting. I was in awe of her–I remember her in ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’, being so passionate. She held herself with such pride through everything; watching her made me want to act too. So when my time came, she taught me to wade through this industry as a woman.
It started out great – I did amazing films. But then for a year, I didn’t work. I felt like my career was over; I was told to ‘re-invent’, become size 0. Everyone goes through a lull in their career. But as an actor, it’s worse–there are so many eyes on you!
2. On Saif Ali Khan
Somehow through my life, I’ve been blessed with people who have supported me thoroughly! So just when I thought I was falling, Saif caught me. I’d met him before, but while we were filming ‘Tashan’, something changed. I wore my heart on my sleeve! He was so charming; I fell for him hook, line & sinker.
