SINGHAM RETURNS has turned out to be a huge success for Kareena Kapoor Khan. It was a conscious call on her part to be a part of masala set up like this that more or less guaranteed good audience footfalls. From that perspective, she has managed to make some gains on the expected lines. However, for those who are used to seeing Kareena in performance oriented parts, it would be a wait for a while. Reason being that for a segment of audience out there, the common refrain is that there could have been more of her in the film with added histrionics.
''Well, even if there are five scenes of mine in the film that make audience laugh and enjoy, it is good enough naa? This is how Rohit Shetty crafts his films. Also, I am not complaining. If you look at big action films like ZANJEER, SHOLAY or DEEWAR, they too had big actresses being a part of them, even though the story was centered on the leading man,'' says Kareena in a matter of fact tone.
She could well be right because after doing relatively heavy films such as SATYAGRAHA and HEROINE, it was her way to take it easy for a while and have some fun too with SINGHAM RETURNS.

''You are right, I deserve some fun after all,'' she smiles, ''Yes, I know there are people saying that it’s not a performance driven role. But then such films aren't going away anywhere. They will keep happening. I did HEROINE too when I felt like. But I can’t give up acting in commercial films when I am given an opportunity to work with Ajay or Salman at this stage of my career.''
With BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN as her next release on Eid 2015, be rest assured it is going to be another blockbuster waiting for her in a year from now.
