Having starred in commercially viable and movies that are entertaining “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…” and “Jab We Met”, actress Kareena Kapoor Khan says it really is a rarity for popular stars to use up movies on relevant subjects. But she consented to do a “small role that is special in “Udta Punjab” — a film on Punjab’s drug menace — when it comes to strong message so it conveys.
Kareena will likely to be seen essaying a physician named Preet Sahani into the Abhishek Chaubey directorial, which was in the middle of controversy for the theme.
Dealing with what made her sign the movie, Kareena told IANS: “It was the topic… Although it’s a role that is small the movie. I believe actors like us do not use up subjects that are relevant this.”
“Mainstream actors constantly try to find roles which are an integral part of commercial films. We have done plenty of that,” added the actress that is 35-year-old phone from Mumbai. It absolutely was once the film’s director approached her with all the script of “Udta Punjab” she was very “clear that ‘I would like to be an integral part of this film’. that she says”
“It offers a stronger message and it’s really a little role that is special. I was thinking it offers a message that is great (because i needed) to engage in something good available to you for my fans,” added Kareena, who dedicated 20 days to your film.
A plus that she also felt needs to be brought “out on celluloid” for her was the preparation that Chaubey had for a movie which is on an “important” subject as serious as the escalating issue of drug abuse in Punjab — something.
“The director was very well-prepared. He came very well-prepared from the set. Abhishek was clear about them. He had been very clear regarding the type or variety of film he desired to make along with his characters. It absolutely was intriguing and i will be happy that i will be playing a part that is small this film,” Kareena said.
“Udta Punjab” makers have been through their share of struggle in seeking a release certificate through the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), which first suggested up to 89 cuts within the movie. Thereafter, its Revising Committee asked for 13 cuts.
Ultimately, the makers moved the Bombay High Court which on Monday overruled the cuts that are CBFC-recommended the movie and cleared it for release in just one cut and three disclaimers because of the filmmakers.
Kareena says it has been a victory that is great the group associated with film.
“It really is one of the best triumphs to own happened in recent years. It is simply so wonderful for anyone (who) have place in the work that is hard. Abhishek Chaubey had believed into the film that is brave really wants to make. So, i do believe this really is his moment of triumph that finally his baby is really being released in the screen that is big” said the “joyous” actress.
Her co-actors through the film — Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt — have already been during the forefront of press conferences in connection with controversy around “Udta Punjab”, but Kareena was missing. Why so?
“I became there when it comes to trailer launch… (so far as) Press conferences and conversing with the media everyday (is worried), I’m sure it really is part of the task and I also love carrying it out, but constantly being seen everywhere is one thing i will be really not interested in doing,” she said.
“I am certain that I was not missed since there was so commotion that is much anyway.”
That being said, she knows “the movie can do its job” anyway.
