Kareena talks about ‘competition, comparison’
Kareena said, “Now especially, actors have to keep saying something or the other. I can’t. I just cut off. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have lasted this long, I would have just have wilted in this competition, this pressure, the comparison of this look and that look, now so-and-so’s on the rise and I have to look young, so-and-so is doing this or that brand or is a global face. I can’t. I’m done.”
Kareena says she’s ‘still hot’
“You have to find yourself, you know, find your individuality. Find that one thing you want to own about yourself and never lose it. Y’all are still saying that I should be on the cover of Dirty, na? That means there has to be something that’s kept this chick going. I’ve still got it, I’m still hot,” she added.
