Bollywood podcast: Kareena Kapoor aka Bebo
Thursday 19 November 2009
Plenty to get our teeth into around Indian cinema recently, so just to recap... Tum Mile ("I Met You", Vishesh Films) is a romantic drama set against the backdrop of the Mumbai floods in the summer of 2005.
It stars Bollywood's 'serial kisser' Emraan Hashmi alongside sister of Saif, Soha Ali Khan. Jail (Percept Picture Company) is a thriller, starring Neil Nitin Mukesh in his third film this year along with the fledgling Mughda Godse, who impressed in Fashion last year and All The Best, more recently. And the last couple of weeks have also seen the release of romcom, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani ("The Amazing Story Of Strange Love", Tips Music Films), with Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif's chemistry lighting up the screens for the biggest smash hit of the year so far! So all is well in Bollywood!
This week's interview focuses on my interview with Kareena Kapoor. Her entire family (more than four generations before her) are superstars in Bollywood and she's done really well since her debut in Refugee nine years ago to keep good of the family name. Her latest release is Kurbaan ("Sacrifice", UTV) where she stars with real life boyfriend and Indian legend, Saif Ali Khan. The film is a romantic thrillier, with dark tones and menacing imagery set against the backdrop of global terrorism - previews suggest it makes for powerful cinema.
So enjoy the delightful Kareena who we affectionately call 'Bebo'. Don't forget, you can also download my podcasts from iTunes and join the Facebook group here.
