Kareena sets aside rumours of pregnancy
When asked if the news of motherhood is true, Kareena said, “God willing hopefully. I am a woman. But right now there is nothing to say about it.” When prodded further if the news of her pregnancy was false, the Ki and Ka actor said, “The fact that you all are talking about it is making me super excited.”
Kareena will be seen next in Udta Punjab alongside Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh.
She feels it is important for actors to do films on issues prevalent in the society and is hopeful that the message conveyed in her upcoming movie Udta Punjab will come out effectively on screen.
Presently, the filmmakers of Udta Punjab are fighting a battle against the censor board, which has raised several objections over use of various words and language in the film.
When asked about the ongoing censorship issues, Kareena said, “I have full faith in the film, the director and full faith in our fans. There are big stars in the film and all of them have a huge fan base.”
“The reason I did Udta Punjab is because there is no small or big role. And even if my role is a special one in the film, if we actors don’t do these kinds of films, the message (about drug menace) will never be out,” she said.
In the film, Shahid essays the role of a Punjabi rockstar, Alia Bhatt is a migrant from Bihar, Kareena plays a doctor while Punjabi star Diljit Dosanjh enacts a tough cop.
“I have done many films in the past where I have played pivotal roles, but I chose to be a part of this film (Udta Punjab) because it is important that this message gets told, which am sure is going to come on screen,” Kareena said.
The Abhishek Chaubey-directed film is scheduled to release on June 17.
