Kareena Kapoor heaps praise on Rani Mukerji, Tabu
In an interview with Forbes, Kareena Kapoor opened up about the hard work the younger generation of actors put in as opposed to her generation. She mentioned her Mujhse Dosti Karoge! Co-star Rani Mukerji and said,“They are the most talented actors we've had in the Indian film industry. Rani is absolutely cinematic in every which way. Whatever role she plays, she just transforms on the screen. You cannot take your eyes off her.“
In the same conversation, she also spoke highly of Tabu. Kareena will soon share screen space with Tabu in the upcoming film The Crew. She said, “Tabu, for that matter, is one of the finest actors again the Indian industry has ever seen. For them, no one's thinking of age. They're entertaining the audience. We're here to entertain. How does age matter?”
Kareena Kapoor says actors of their generation work harder
In the same interview, the Jab We Met actress opined that older actresses are working very hard even after having substantial careers. She said, “All these actors are doing better than ever, sorry, but even the younger lot. We're all raring to go. Age is just a number now and it shouldn't even be discussed. You're all not asking the old crop of actors how old they are, so how are we being asked.”
Kareena also maintained that she does not think of herself as a superstar. She said, “I have never felt as anything of that sort because I have always looked at myself as an actor who’s wanted to do something different constantly. Otherwise, it would have been impossible to survive 23 years with each decade having a dash of new actors, new talent.”
