Kareena Kapoor Khan and Aamir Khan have acted together in 3 Idiots and Talaash, and will soon be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha. They have had a good professional rapport. But even at a personal level, it seems they are great friends.
Back in 2015, Aamir Khan sparked a huge controversy for his alleged intolerance remark. He had said at the Ramnath Goenka Awards, “When I chat with Kiran at home, she says ‘Should we move out of India?’ That's a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make. She fears for her child. She fears about what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers every day. That does indicate that there is this sense of growing disquiet, there is growing despondency apart from alarm. You feel why this is happening, you feel low. That sense does exist in me.”
His remarks had caused a huge controversy. At that time, Kareena had defended him. She said in an interview, “I don’t think Aamir said anything wrong. He just addressed a fear. It was a conversation that he was talking to his wife about. I don’t think he meant anything damaging by it. Of course, 500,000 opinions followed and as many clarifications were issued. There will always be anger and unrest as opinions are expressed. India is made up of highly emotional people."
She had added, "There are too many voices spoiling everything today. Everybody has an opinion on every issue, everybody wants their voice to be heard… They either want to be involved in a controversy or even if they don’t want to be involved, people will comment and drag them into one… There’s just too much of a hue and cry over everything. People’s opinions on Twitter are not going to change the mindset of the government and society. These are things political parties have to change first.”
The actress had also spoken about how she keeps herself up to date with what’s happening in the world. “Everybody today gets fried for voicing their opinions. So, is it really important? I don’t know. Contrary to what people think, I don’t live in a bubble. Everybody makes fun of my space cadet behaviour, but I am extremely aware of what’s going on around me. My morning newspapers are nothing to do with gossip at all, but in fact, I read up on the latest news happening in India and the world. Over the last two years, I wait to sit with my chai and read up on current affairs,” stated Kareena.
