Arjun praises Kareena, says she doesn’t take stardom seriously

Mumbai: Actor Arjun Kapoor feels Kareena Kapoor Khan is a simple person, who doesn’t take her stardom seriously, and says that is her biggest asset.

Arjun found it quite easy to work with his childhood crush Kareena in R Balki’s “Ki and Ka”.

“The first thing I learnt is being simple, she has not lost herself after being here for a long time. She has always been the same person. She is the same person on sets as she is off it. She doesn’t take her stardom seriously. I think that is her biggest asset,” Arjun told PTI.

The 30-year-old actor, who is all praise for the “Jab We Met” actress, further said that she listens to her directors very patiently.

“She is a gifted actor, she listens to her directors. As an actor, she just patiently listens to what the director wants. A lot of people have their opinion or point of view, but Kareena doesn’t do that, she still listens to her directors,” Arjun said.

“That humility towards your craft is something I love. Films are as good as directors, actors are selfish people…Directors see the bigger picture,” he said.

Considering that Kareena is a seasoned actress while Arjun is relatively a newcomer in front of her, he did not feel intimidated by her.

“I have been a fan of hers as she is a fantastic actor. I have grown up in the industry. I know Kareena for years even before she became an actress. She has done four films with my father. She is not one of those actors who makes other person intimidated, we have fun on the sets.

“We have now known each other for quite sometime, it is normal for us. We did not have to break the ice or create chemistry. We have a fantastic director, great actors and a great story. We finished the film in less than 50 days,” he said.

On reports that he would be working with his uncle Anil Kapoor in the remake version of “Chacha Batija”, Arjun rubbished such stories saying, “It is not true.”

The actor is presently quite excited about his stint on small screen as a host with adventure reality show “Khatron Ke Khiladi”.
