In her next release Kambakth Ishq, Kareena plays a surgeon who moonlights as a super-model.
A surgeon who’s a super-model? Sounds like a deadly combination. “Yeah my character flies to Italy to become a super-model to support herself financially. I didn’t want to play the character looking like an international model because she’s basically in another profession. So she can’t really have the figure of Victoria Beckham, can she? I had to look more filled up. Again, for my next release Main Aur Mrs Khanna with Salman, I play a wife. So I wanted to look more filled up. Not that wives can’t be curvaceous. The one I played in Golmaal Returns certainly was.”
For her forthcoming films ‘Size 0′ is out. No more international anorexic looks for her. Kareena Kapoor is down to a healthy normal desi girl’s model-like figure.
Reason? “My forthcoming releases required me to get back to a fuller shape.”
Now Kareena has decided to hold steady with her new weight. “I weigh 54 kgs now, which for a girl of my height is quite fine. People used to wonder what ‘Size 0′ is and I’d joke, ‘Just look at me’. I don’t want that anymore. I want to look like a nice normal healthy girl.”
