Keen to follow the footsteps of her mother-in-law Sharmila Tagore,actress Kareena Kapoor wants to work in Bengali film industry.
“Satyajit Ray was one such director with whom my mother-in-law had the opportunity to work in so many films. I also hope to be able to work with some of the great directors of Bengal,” the young Kapoor scion married to Sharmila’s son and actor Saif Ali Khan told reporters.
Describing Bengali film directors as very artistic and those with a deep sense of good scripts,Kareena said,”I have never been offered a Bengali film. But I want to work. Language comes as a problem but that can be managed with dubbing.”
When asked,the 33-year-old actress said she never had the opportunity to spend enough time in Kolkata.
“But I love the food over here. The city is culturally very rich. If I do a Bengali film it will also give me the chance to understand the city better,” she said.
Kareena was in town to promote Punit Malhotra’s romantic comedy ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ where she is cast opposite Imran Khan. The film releases this Friday.
She said the film,where she plays a social activist,is a complete family entertainer.
“I love doing different roles. In my last film ‘Satyagraha’ it was an intense role and here it is very fun,” Kareena said.
