Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor, whose film Heroine is set for a September release, said she was confident but not overconfident about it.
“I am not overconfident but quite confident and excited about the film,” she said at a promotional event, marking the film’s tie-up with the clothing brand, Jealous 21.
When asked whether she is jealous of anyone, she said: “I am jealous of people who get to go on holidays, even though I go on many of my own. I love travelling. I am also jealous of people who get to eat whatever they want.”
Releasing on September 21, the film also stars Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda and has been directed by Madhur Bhandarkar.
Having done various films like Ra.One, Bodyguard and 3 Idiots, the actor said that the one closest to her heart is her first film, Refugee.
“The first film is always special. That innocence never comes back — Refugee is my favourite film,” she said.
Heroine revolves around the ups and downs that are part of the journey of an actor. Kareena said that even though she is playing the role of an actor in the movie as well, she is nothing like that in real life.
“People think there are similarities, but I am not like that. She is bold, manipulative, dark and edgy. I am not at all like that,” she said.
Talking about her look in the film, she said, “My favourite looks are in the title song of the film, which is yet to release.”
Kareena also revealed that she would have loved to play Konkona Sen Sharma’s role in Bhandarkar’s film Page 3.
