‘I don’t have energy, dedication for Hollywood’
Popular Indian actors are landing roles in international projects, but actor Kareena Kapoor Khan says she is not eyeing Hollywood.
Asked if she would like to feature in a Hollywood film, Kareena said: “I have no interest in Hollywood. Today, people are watching Hindi films all over the world and in fact Hindi films are dubbed in all languages... So, it’s not that they (West) don’t know other actores.
“To work in Hollywood, a different kind of energy and dedication is required, but I don’t think I have that in me.”
Kareena is currently busy promoting her film Ki & Ka — a film which breaks gender stereotypes with its theme. The actor credits her husband Saif Ali Khan for being supportive and allowing her to do the film.
“Partner’s support is very important. If my partner was not supportive, I would not be able to do a film like Ki & Ka,” she said, adding that Saif found the film “progressive” in its thought. The movie features Arjun Kapoor as Kabir, an IIT graduate and a house husband, who has grown up wanting to be like his mother and not like his father and will be seen doing household. On the other hand, Kareena essays Kia, an ambitious and a career-oriented woman.
Also, time and again there have been rumours that RK Films, the banner established by the late filmmaker Raj Kapoor, will be revived.
“There are no plans of reviving the banner. We have not thought about it. My grandfather had made so many films and launched such a good established banner. We made some really good films but at the moment there is nothing happening,” said Kareena. The Kapoor family has presided over show business across four generations.
Directed by R. Balki, the film Ki a& Ka is slated to release on April 1.
