Is the Singham Returns heroine taking a dig at the Bobby Jasoos leading lady? Read on to find out…

Kareena Kapoor Khan says though she loves doing commercial films, she would not mind being part of off beat movies if an exciting offer comes her way. ”Commercial films have their own charm. I love doing commercial masala films. In my career commercial films like Golmaal Returns, Bodyguard, Ra One and others did well at the box office,” Kareena said. ”I think the commercial films that I did had something for me to do in it. It is not that in these films I was just there for the heck of it. I enjoy doing commercial films. I think I am the most commercial heroine,” she said.

Though the heroine loves being part of commercial films, she also wants to act in parallel cinema, provided the offer is exciting. “I will do that (parallel or off beat cinema), but I won’t do it just for the heck of it. I have been one of the initial heroines to do films like Dev, Chameli, Omkara and others,” Kareena said. ”At this stage I will not do a film like that because I have done too much of that. The script has to be good as I don’t have anything to prove to anyone now…till then I am happy doing commercial films,” she said.

Kareena did off beat films in her career primarily because she needed to balance herself as an artist. “I come from a family where I wanted to prove myself as a heroine. I was 21 when I played the role of a prostitute in Chameli and then again played it in Talaash,” she said. ”My mother-in-law has played a prostitute twice in her career, in Amar Prem and Mausam, in a span of 13 years and so have I,” she said.

The 33-year-old heroine says she has done lot of films for friends and now she want to do movies for story. She did not name the films that she did for the sake of friendship. At a time when most of the films have intimate or bold scenes, Kareena doesn’t seem to be open for it. ”I don’t think I can be part of a film like The Dirty Picture. I don’t think I can ever do a film like this. I don’t have the courage and boldness to do such films. For me it is a challenge to be part of a film like Golmaal 3 and still have a great role. It is an honour for me to be part of films like Singham Returns, that is what works for me and my career,” she said.

    Vidya is the True queen of bollywood. Who cares about 100 crores ? 100 crores are due to Khans,Ranbir/hrithik or akshay.

    Vidya is 5 years younger to you and see she has already won padma shri something that took actresses like rekha 36 years to win it.. Vidya is a class above u and priyanka.

    Vidya might not have any 100 crores in her kitty yet he proved himself without working with any of the three khans.. She proved that she can survive without Khans in the industry

    Talking of dirty pictures and kahanni.. she carried both the films on her shoulder..
    She is an inspiration for upcoming actresses .

    i think vidya and kareena r the only two heroines who can justify a character .They r the only actresses who can carry a movie on their shoulders even without the lead pair .Clearly they two are the only best actresses in today’s industry
