[imagebrowser id=258] NEW DELHI: Our shutterbugs spotted Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor lighting a lamp at The Metropolitan Hotel in the capital city to flag off the 58th Idea Filmfare Awards odyssey. Kareena Kapoor, recently turned Begum of Pataudi (post her big fat wedding to Nawab of Pataudi: Saif Ali Khan) is a woman in a hurry. The lady who has been right at the top of her game, as the numero uno actress in Bollywood, has no plans of slowing down post marriage.
The 58th Idea Filmfare Awards which is to be held at YRF Studios on January 20, 2013, will also celebrate the 100th year of Indian cinema. At the event, the actress joked, “Every man wants a lady. But every actor wants a Black Lady… Every actor wants to give an acceptance speech. The Black Lady does that to you. I want many, many more of them. But I am getting stiff competition from my brother (Ranbir Kapoor)
Looking resplendent in red (she chose to keep the Christmas spirit in mind, and dressed accordingly: in a bright red knee-length designer dress), Kareena wowed the media persons with her stunning looks. Rumour has it, that everyone was spellbound by the lovely lady, and was in awe of the beautiful actress. And rightly so: for Kareena Kapoor has the power to take anyone’s breath away!
Kareena has recently launched a book, ‘Style Diary of a Bollywood Diva’, where she talks about the size-zero phase of her life, controversies which hounded her and of course, the leading man in her life- Saif Ali Khan. Here’s a sneak peak:
An interesting anecdote about her size-zero phase, which had the whole country in a craze, is that beau Saif never really appreciated it much. “Saif, who has always been my voice of reason, was concerned that I had become too thin. His exact words ‘You’re looking like a 12-year old boy.’ He isn’t a subtle one!”
Kareena also speaks about why ‘Tashan’ is probably the most memorable film of her life. “Tashan bombed at the box office, but it gave me my two biggest hits: Size 0 and Saif. I’d always thought Saif was one of the best looking men ever but we weren’t friends till we started working on this movie. What instantly drew me to him was his sense of humour and his love for adventure. If you ask him, he’ll say I made the first move! Which is so not true because he was flirting with me quite shamelessly but in a unique way.”
