While tinsel town is going red with the buzz that Kareena Kapoor will wear Saif Ali Khan's ring as soon as they are through with AGENT VINOD, our correspondent catches up Bollwyood's sexiest couple in Gurgaon and asks what keeps them ticking
SAIF ALI KHAN and KAREENA KAPOOR
Both of you have done three films together so far- LOC, TASHAN and KURBAAN. So, what are the changes you have seen in each other as actors?
Saif: Oh my God! You jounos ask questions that reminds me of schooldays. LOC was some 11 years back...so don't remember at all. In TASHAN, Kareenaji was cast opposite Akshay Kumarji, while I was in love with my red belt. It was only in KURBAAN that we were finally cast opposite each other. But talking about Kareena's acting, I think she is one of the most talented actresses of Indian cinema.
Kareena: Working with Saif is a learning experience...really! He is a perfect combination of method and spontaneous acting. Besides, Saif and Aamir (Khan) are the only actors who can easily mould themselves as the characters they portray on-screen; they get into the head of the characters.
Question for Kareena. You have worked with all the 4 Khans of
Bollywood. So, whom are you most comfortable with?
"We are most comfortable with each other"
See, I am comfortable with all of them-Shah Rukh, Aamir, Salman and Saif...I know them since my childhood as they were my sister's (Karisma Kapoor) co-stars as well.
Saif, who looks best on-screen with Kareena?
I think, on-screen Kareena look best with Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh.
And Kareena, who looks best with Saif on-screen?
Rani Mukherji looks really nice with Saif...I like to see them together on-screen.
You are considered as Bollywood's sexiest couple. What keeps you ticking while there are news of celebrity break-ups every other day?
Saif: May be, because we are most comfortable with each other.
What are the qualities you like the most about each other?
Saif: Kareena's honesty, her childishness
Kareena: I love Saif's carefree attitude
What do you dislike about each other?
Saif: Her anger
Kareena: He thinks too much. I wish he can cut on that.
Why do you think women find Saif attractive?
Kareena: Because he has an extremely attractive personality
And why do men find Kareena hot?
Saif: Because of her gorgeous aura, her eyes, her naughty heels
How insecure do you feel when women go 'ga ga' after Saif?
Kareena: There are no insecurities. In fact, I want women to crowd around and run after Saif at parties and other places...because he is hot.
Saif, do you feel insecure when other men blow whistles at Kareena?
Saif: As long as they are not doing it with a bad intention, I am cool with it. We are in show business and we know how to handle these situations.
