Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has spent decades in the film industry, is now focussing on quality work than quantity. Her next would be The Crew, with actors Tabu and Kriti Sanon. “I am super excited because of course I have never worked with Tabu. Lolo (sister Krisma Kapoor) and her have done some stellar films together. All of us are females working on the film, including our producers (Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor) That’s the cool thing about these two, they have always been cool enough to break the mould and just do something different. I am really looking forward to it. It’s a big screen film, and I am pretty sure the audience will love it," she said in an interview with HT.
Talking about working with female actors, Khan says, “I have worked in many female centric films, and worked with most of the female actors. So I think today it’s about doing a good film, it’s not about who is in it, what’s in it. Everybody just wants to do a good film.”
Talking about her performance in Jab We Met and characters like Poo and Geet, she told the publication, “Of course it will always be compared to Poo and Geet, they are iconic I understand. Everybody is going to compare. But I feel like people should talk about Chameli, Omkara, Heroine, they are pretty underrated in terms of my performance, Yuva too. Why don’t people talk about that? I understand in an actor’s life people kind of pick the parts. I am also doing The Devotion of Suspect X, that’s a very different kind of spectrum for me.”
“Of course, Jab We Met is ghar ki khichdi, you see it again and again, there’s always something new, it doesn’t seem like an old film. That’s a rarity, every time you watch it’s like you are watching it for the first time. It’s just the character,” smiles Khan.
Directed by Rajesh Krishnan, The Crew follows three hard-working women as their destinies lead to some unwarranted situations and end up caught in a web of lies.
