Karan, Kareena shoot for paint promo together
By Subhash K. Jha, IANS
Star director Karan Johar and actress Kareena Kapoor have buried the hatchet and are pals again. They recently shot together for the first time after "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham" for a paint advertisement.
Although it was just for a promo, the point was well taken by the buddies, who had temporarily breached their bonding over Kareena's refusal to do Karan's "Kal Ho Naa Ho". It turned out to be a special day for both of them.
"That was in the past," Kareena said, brushing off the cold war. "I was headstrong, immature and impulsive. I'd like to think I've matured in the past few years," Kareena told IANS.
As the two-some exchanged buddy-buddy talks on the set, it was easy to see that they were completely comfortable with one another with the past forgotten.
Karan, exhausted at the end of the day, said: "It isn't a tough commercial and Kareena today is easy to direct. She is focused and committed. We both had a ball."
The commercial is part of a package deal between the director and a leading paint company. His best friend Shah Rukh Khan's company Red Chillies is producing the promo.
"After this ad with Kareena, I'll be starring in an ad for the same paint company which obviously someone else will direct. Sorry, I can't be in front and behind the camera at the same time," remarked Karan.
He is currently wearing several hats.
"Yes, actor, ad maker, TV software manufacturer (for NDTV's soon-to-be-launched entertainment channel), talk-show host, producer ... I love being all of this. But I'll first and foremost be a feature film director."
Karan's production house will soon add another feather to its cap. They'll produce an animation version of his debut film "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai".
"It's too early to talk about that right now. But yes, we're looking at several production plans in 2007," said Karan.
