Mumbai, Feb 15 (IANS) Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan is picking unusual films like “Ki and Ka”, and even working with younger actors like Arjun Kapoor. Breaking norms, is it? No, she says.
“Ki and Ka” is the story of a career-oriented woman, essayed by Kareena, and a house husband, played by Arjun. The film’s trailer was launched at an event here on Monday.
It’s an unusual choice of movie for an actress, and also the fact that she is paired with a fairly new actor like Arjun.
Asked if it’s about breaking norms, Kareena said: “I don’t think of it as breaking norms. I am an actor and it’s in my blood. I have worked with Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun… I work with everyone. I work with people with whom I am comfortable. I am not dying to break any norm.”
Talking about the unusual pairing with Arjun, she said: “The typical pairing never works, but the odd pairing works because there is something about it which is very organic.”
Kareena said her husband Saif Ali Khan is very proud that she signed “Ki and Ka”, directed by R. Balki.
“We never discuss scripts, but when Balki sir messaged me, I was excited because I respect him as a filmmaker. I just told Saif that I am going to meet Balki, and the conversation ended there. Yesterday, Saif saw the film’s promo and he said, ‘I am so proud of you that you said yes to this film’. His reaction was amazing.”
The film is slated to release on April 1.
