A few days ago, Priyanka Chopra turned down an offer to do an item number in Saif Ali Khan’s Agent Vinod. Then, the actor-producer had said that as much as he would have loved to have Priyanka in the film, he understood that “it was not a big role.”
He further added, “The role also meant sharing screen space with Kareena (Kapoor) and many actresses don’t want that.” Kareena concurs, saying that she wants to be the ‘central’ character in all her films.
“If an actor, at this stage (of my career), has a problem working with me, I’m sure she has her reasons. But when I’m working on a film, I would like to be sure that I am playing the central part in it,” says Kareena, who is good friends with Priyanka.
“Whenever we meet, we are warm and cordial. So, I don’t think there should be any issue. We have worked together in Aitraaz (2004) in the past and I won’t like to believe that Priyanka turned down the song because I am in the film. Also, I’m not sure if she was approached for the song or not.”
The Bodyguard actor further adds that no one asked her anything about the song, because she is “not involved in the day-to-day activities of the production”. “After all, I am not the producer,” says Kareena, adding she was always supposed to do a special mujra song for Agent Vinod. “I don’t know if there was any other dance number. Honestly, I don’t know the truth.”
Wax Bebo makes Kapoor family proud
Kareena will unveil her Madame Tussauds wax statue in Blackpool on Thursday and the Kapoor family is elated. “After all, it’s the first Kapoor Madame Tussauds statue. So, it’s a huge high. All the family members are upbeat about it and, in fact, have messaged me. It’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s also quite sensational to have a statue of yours,” says the actor.
But Kareena and cousin Ranbir are yet to get in touch about it. “We don’t connect like that. Whenever we meet, both of us talk about our films. But otherwise, we don’t call or message each other about everything in life. But Rockstar is looking great. Karisma has already told him that. I haven’t had time to meet him. Whenever we do, we will talk about it,” says Kareena.
