Kareena Kapoor: I want to do a ‘good song’ in ‘Dabangg 2’
The actor finds the term ‘item song’ derogatory and prefers to call it a ‘good song’
She has grooved to chartbusters like Chammak challo, Chhaliya, It’s rocking and Mauja hi mauja – but actor Kareena Kapoor says she finds the term “item song” derogatory. She has also clarified that she is yet to accept a song in Salman Khan’s Dabangg 2. “I hate that word item song,” Kareena said in an emphatic tone at the India Today Conclave 2012 Friday. “It’s become a trend among directors and producers…’Chalo ek item number daal dete hain (Let’s put in an item number)’. I don’t like this word item number. Why can’t it just be called a song?” she said.

Kareena Kapoor: I will get married by end of the year
Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor Friday said she hopes to settle down with beau Saif Ali Khan and become the ‘Begum of Pataudi’ by the “end of this year”. “Hopefully, by the end of this year,” Kareena said at the India Today Conclave 2012 in New Delhi, following a question about her D-day. “I am working on Heroine and I need to finish the film first. But we’re not going to announce the date yet. I don’t understand why the entire nation is in a hurry to make me the Begum of Pataudi. There’s no rush. Obviously people have to be patient,” she added.
The 31-year-old has been romantically with Saif, 10 years her senior, since 2007. Saif was anointed the 10th Nawab of Pataudi in 2011, after his father, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi passed away.Click here to read more
