Kareena Kapoor-Khan says she's finally getting the hang of her new 'beautiful' surname
It all started with Aishwarya Rai when she decided to go ahead and add Bachchan to her surname. After tying the knot with Saif Ali Khan, the latest entrant to this fledgling club in B-Town is Bebo. Earlier, Bollywood actresses usually chose not to tweak their established screen names post wedding. Needless to add, times are indeed changing.
In fact, Kareena Kapoor-Khan quite often ends up insisting others to use her updated conjugal identity. `I keep telling people to please address me as Kareena Kapoor-Khan. Besides, that's my name now, isn't it?
Although I've not converted, Saif is my husband and it's a beautiful surname to have,` states the actress with a glint in her green eyes.
On being asked about the positive response she received for her latest item in Dabangg 2, Kareena gives credit to its choreographer. `Farah (Khan) has done a fabulous job with the whole routine. I've never performed a pelvic thrust before in my entire career so yes, I was looking forward to an encouraging reception. The tune is massy: something tailor-made for the aam janta!`
Kareena will start shooting for Prakash Jha's Satyagraha next month. However, she says she doesn't have a dream role as such. So, which actors does she look up to? `I love Meryl Streep and Angelina Jolie. They are not only wonderful actresses but also strong personalities. In my filmi career, I think I've done almost everything but I want to continue acting till I'm 80!`
