Learning from  mistakes, Bebo?

Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan says that she has done a lot of films in the past for the sake of friendship, but now she won’t do them anymore! Being the diva that she is, Kareena says that she doesn’t have to prove anything and only a “good story” would lure her now!

“I have done a lot of films for friends. Now I want to do films for story. I don’t regret it (having done any films for friends) and for me, it’s never a mistake. I am like that — I always think from the heart, so it’s fine,” Kareena said in a recent interview.

Interestingly, the actress, who is currently shooting for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Singham Returns’, has had the opportunity to do commercial films like ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’, ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Bodyguard’ and at the same time try her acting skills on offbeat roles in films like ‘Chameli’ and ‘Talaash’.

On being asked about what made her choose the offbeat roles, the beautiful actress replied, “I did ‘Chameli’ and ‘Dev’ because I needed to balance myself. I come from a family where I needed to prove myself. I was 21 when I played a prostitute in ‘Chameli’ and I played it again in ‘Talaash’… both have been great films of my career.”

So when the actress was asked if she is open to take up such roles even now, she promptly said, “I will do that but I won’t do it just for the sake of it because I did ‘Dev’, ‘Chameli’ and ‘Omkara’ when I was the most (successful) commercial actress. At this stage, I will not do a film just like that or for the heck of it, because I have done that and I am happy doing commercial films.”

She further added, “I don’t have to prove anything (now). Most importantly, the script has to be good.” Point taken Mrs. Kapoor Khan!
