Kareena Kapoor Khan, who over the past few years has developed the image of a successful commercial film actress, says that she wouldn’t mind being part of an offbeat movie but only if an exciting offer comes her way.

“Commercial films have their own charm. I love doing commercial masala films. In my career commercial films like ‘Golmaal Returns’, ‘Bodyguard’, ‘RaOne’ and others did well at the box office,” Kapoor Khan told IANS.

“I think the commercial films that I did, had something for me to do in it. It is not that in these films I was just there for the heck of it. I enjoy doing commercial films. I think I am the most commercial heroine,” she said.

However, she admits loving being a part of commercial flicks. “I will do that (parallel or off beat cinema), but I won’t do it just for the heck of it. I have been one of the initial actresses to do films like ‘Dev’, ‘Chameli’, ‘Omkara’ and others,” the actress said.

“At this stage I will not do a film like that because I have done too much of that. The script has to be good as I don’t have anything to prove to anyone now…Till then I am happy doing commercial films,” she said.

During the initial days of her career, Kapoor Khan had been part of few off-beat movies as he needed herself to be grooved as an artist. “I come from a family where I wanted to prove myself as an actress. I was 21 when I played the role of a prostitute in ‘Chameli’ and then again played it in ‘Talaash’,” she said.

Kapoor Khan will be next seen in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Singham Returns’ also starring Ajay Devgn.
