Kareena Kapoor: I understand the responsibility that comes with being a role model

The ultimate diva of Bollywood industry Kareena Kapoor is awaiting the release of her much-anticipated film ‘Heroine’, which has been directed by Madhur Bhandarkar. ‘Heroine’, which is one of the most eagerly awaited films of this season, locked many headlines over the past week due to its controversial smoking scenes.

Censor Board of India wanted the film to carry a warning message in the smoking scenes. However, now when Delhi High Court has ruled in favour of the makers, Kareena has broken silence over the issue.

While speaking on her inclusion, the 31-year-old told the media that no one is trying to encourage smoking among the youth but it was a requirement which had to be fulfilled.

Kareena is considered as the most profitable heroine in the tinsel town. She also has a huge fan following in the country. Therefore, many out there believe a lot of people might start smoking after watching her.

Nevertheless, Bebo says that she knows the responsibility which comes with being a role model. The actress said she is totally different from the character she has played in the film.

“I take my role as a youth icon seriously. The script required the character (of film star Mahi Khanna) to behave in a certain way, but she is nothing like me in real life. As an actor, it is my job to essay various roles, but as soon as my director yells ‘cut’, I’m back to being Kareena Kapoor. I understand the responsibility that comes with being a role model,” insisted the actor.

She added, “My producers and director have ensured that all the required warning notifications have been included in the film.”

‘Heroine’, which is scheduled to hit the cinemas on September 7, will feature the likes of Arjun Rampal, Randeep Hooda and Shana Goswami along with Kareena Kapoor.

Let’s see how much revenue the film generates at the box office.
