It’s been 13 years since Kareena Kapoor Khan and Shahid Kapoor split. Over the years, there have been elements of their relationship that came up. However, nothing to the extent what Kareena has revealed in one of her recent interviews.
Kareena, who at the time of filming for ‘Jab We Met’ with Shahid, was also working with her current love, Saif Ali Khan in ‘Tashan’. While, the movie ‘Jab We Met’ went on to become a blockbuster, ‘Tashan’ disappointed but proved a turning point in the actress’ life.
In an interview she said, “…I was shooting for a film called Tashan which was a YRF film and I was giving Jab We Met a kind of treatment that listen, I am working with Yash Raj Films. I am doing a film with Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan. I am playing the main part. I have become size zero, I have lost weight. I am going to wear a bikini and I am going to kill it. That was my vibe on the set of Jab We Met (sic).”
She further added, “(I was like) My main passion project (Tashan) is going to make me and I am going to be like Kill Bill. I am going to kill it. This…(Jab We Met) I am just shooting. I was like I am just mouthing the lines and it is fun. But that’s the film (Tashan) that is going to kill it. It will change my life and I am going to be like Uma Thurman of Kill Bill (sic).”
Elaborating on her relationship with Shahid during ‘Jab We Met’, Kareena said, “Shahid was the one who said that I should hear the script of the film. He was like, ‘It’s amazing, the girl’s part is amazing and you should do it.’ He kind of actually got this entire project together and both of us ended up doing this film (sic).”
“Of course, after that destiny had its own plans and life took its course. A lot happened between this film (Jab We Met) and Tashan. We all went in separate ways and the beauty of this movie (Jab We Met) came out of it (sic),” she added.
She spoke about meeting Saif on the sets of ‘Tashan’, “I met Saif (during Tashan). I actually thought that that (Tashan) was going to change my life and my career. But this (Jab We Met) changed my career and that (Tashan) changed my life. Because I did meet the man of my dreams and I did marry him (sic).”
Shahid and Kareena met on the sets of ‘Fida’ in 2004 but the short-lived romance ended in ‘Jab We Met’ in 2007.
