Mostly in spy-thrillers, the women have little to do and show up only to turn on the heat. How is her part defined?
That is a trait in many Bond movies, but again, our film is not Bond.
Kareena comes at a later stage in the film and has a complex character with various nuances attached. This role compliments her very well and she does full justice to her character.
Was she roped in to play the part because this is your home production?
No, she was thought of keeping the story in mind. If that was the case, she would have acted in our first production as well, Love Aaj Kal. It was the right casting decision.
She is a phenomenal and intense actor, and understands all facets of cinema since she has been versatile in her choice of roles.
Sometimes, she knows technicallities better than me -- about the lenses and the lighting. It is interesting to talk to her about such stuff. As a producer, she is one of the most professional actors we have worked with.
