Actress Kareena Kapoor feels marriage to actor Saif Ali Khan has not changed anything in her life and she hopes the Nawab of Pataudi also remains the same.
Bollywood star couple Saif and Kareena tied the knot
here in October last year after a five-year courtship.
"Saif and I were in love and we decided to get
married. For us everything is same. Things are going great (in
married life). It is just the same even while I was dating
Saif... Things are going amazing. Saif is same as before,
hopefully he will never change," Kareena told PTI.
"For media and people, it (marriage) seems like a big
thing. But in real life it is not like that. There have never
been any restrictions. We are surprised when people ask what
is the difference after marriage, we fail to understand this
as there is no difference. He is in America and we were
talking about this thing... it seems surprising," she said.
Though Kareena feels things are same post marriage,
there is usually an added responsibility after marriage but
for her, singlehood and married life is more or less the same.
"Since childhood I was a responsible girl. There was
responsibility of the family... First of my mother, then my
sister Karisma and now Saif's responsibility. But he (Saif) is
pretty much on his own, he is a responsible person, he's quite
mature," the 32-year-old actress said.
Kareena believes in giving equal importance to love
and work in her life.
"Both (love and work) are equal for me. I have been
balancing things. I am an actress who has been open about my
relationships. There is nothing wrong in falling in love.
"I don't know why people associate love with your
career? I don't understand why people ask this? Because love
is like the way you breathe air... You love your mother but
still you work. I love my mother, family and I still work,"
Since her mother-in-law is legendary actress Sharmila
Tagore, when asked which films of hers she likes the most,
Kareena said she loved her in Amar Prem (1972).
"I like Amar Prem a lot, that is my favourite film.
I think that was the best film of hers. I loved her in the
film. I won't be part of its remake version as I don't think
classics should be remade," she said.
On work front, Kareena is looking forward to the
release of Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, where she plays the
role of a journalist.
"She (my role in the film) is the voice, truth of the
film. Because the responsibility of a journalist is to report
truth, she sums up everything that takes place in this
"She is the voice of this revolution. It is the most
important part in the film and that is why I wanted to be
a part of it. Considering what is happening in the country,
this is a very relevant film, it will inspire people," she
The film has an ensemble cast including Amitabh
Bachchan, Arjun Rampal, Ajay Devgn, Manoj Bajpai and Amrita
"We (Kareena and Bachchan) did two good films together
Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Dev and now Satyagraha. It is a
great film. This film has Amit uncle, Arjun Rampal and Ajay
Devgn. I have worked with them earlier as well in various
films. I have been friends with the entire team of the film,
so the atmosphere was great. I had a nice experience working
with everyone," she added.
