Ka­reena wants to ex­plore dif­fer­ent things till she’s 70

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

From do­ing films as dif­fer­ent as chalk and cheese to re­defin­ing pro­fes­sion­al­ism for work­ing moth­ers and try­ing her hands at a ra­dio show, ac­tor Ka­reena Kapoor Khan has man­aged it all, and doesn’t want to stop. And, she says she would like to keep ex­plor­ing “dif­fer­ent things” till she is 70 years old.

Ka­reena — who made her act­ing de­but in 2000 with Refugee — has been in films such as Ajn­abee (2001), Asoka (2001), Chameli (2003), Yuva (2004), Omkara (2006), Jab We Met (2007), Hero­ine (2012), Ki & Ka (2016) and Udta Pun­jab (2016).

Does she as­pire to do some­thing more?

“The idea to­day is only about con­tent

— and be­ing a part of good con­tent, whether it’s the web, cin­ema, stage or ra­dio.

To­day artists and ac­tors are all about sup­port­ing con­tent. I’m just happy that I have got to try my hand... It’s the first time for me. So, lets see... I would like to try dif­fer­ent things till prob­a­bly I am 70,” says the 38-year-old ac­tor who re­de­fined pro­fes­sion­al­ism by re­turn­ing to work soon af­ter de­liv­er­ing her child Taimur in 2016.

Ka­reena, who was seen in Veere Di Wed­ding this year, praises dig­i­tal plat­forms. “I’m glad all this is open­ing up for us,” says the ac­tor, adding, “The con­tent in cin­ema and dif­fer­ent plat­forms is chang­ing.

There are so many op­tions to do what you want in to­day’s time and I think it’s the best time to be an ac­tor.”
