    Kareena Kapoor thrives on new negative role

    [Interview by Hindol Sengupta]
    Monday, November 01, 2004
    Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor is thrilled about her negative role in a new film directed by duo Abbas-Mastan and to be released next year.

    "This will be my second negative role after ''Fida'' and I''m very excited about it," Kapoor told IANS in an interview here.
    "I've always tried to experiment with the widest variety of role possible from 'Ashoka' to 'Chameli' and with every step I feel I've just grown as an actress."
    Kapoor is also looking forward to her upcoming releases "Aitraaz" and "Hulchul". "in both the films, I'm playing very different characters," said Kapoor in a printed blouse and jeans and a denim jacket.
    "One is like a emotional, roller coaster, while the other is a funny romance. At the moment, I want to do everything that I possibly can and do things from every genre. I definitely don't want to get stuck in just the romantic roles."
    Kapoor also said that she isn't looking for international roles. "I'm very happy with what's happening in Bollywood. This totally works for me, I'm very happy doing Hindi films.
    "There's just an enormous opportunity in Bollywood. I'm just 24 and I have to settle properly in Bollywood before I think of doing anything else.
    "There's no hurry, when the time comes for me to do international films, I'm sure I'll get the right roles and then I'll be ready for them."
    Kapoor was in town to cheer her friend, designer Manish Malhotra, who makes all her clothes in every film, and Pradeep Hirani, owner of the fashion boutique Kimaya, who is also a special friend.
    She's also doing a bilingual film next year where Kapoor says she's playing a very special role. "This film is going to be fascinating. I have a really interesting role but I can't talk about it at the moment.
    "It's unlike anything I've ever done before."
    Kapoor also said she feels too much is being made of Bollywood shunning melodrama for more realistic fare.
    "See, I'm from a film family. We grew up with Hindi cinema and for us cinema means song and dance, it means lots of action and melodrama, lots of laughter and lots of crying. This is cinema for us.
    "When people talk of realistic films, they don't understand that Indian cinema doesn't work like that. Indian audiences expect song and dance and melodrama.

    "This is our heritage and we should be proud of it, why should we try to do something that the West does? We do what we do best."
