Kareena Kapoor: The Entertainer of the Decade
Kareena Kapoor was awarded the Entertainer of the Decade at the NDTV Indian of the Year Awards held at a ceremony on 15 April 2013. The evening was dedicated to the Indian woman, and to the memory of the 23-year-old medical student who was gang-raped and brutalised on a Delhi bus last December, and who died at a hospital in Malaysia some days later.
At the event, Kapoor was asked what it was like playing a journalist in Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, to which she smartly responded: "It's good to be on the other side but I regret I don't get to ask questions like when are you getting married or when are you having a baby."
She also further elaborated on her role in Satyagraha which has been inspired by Barkha Dutt, and how she coped without husband Saif Ali Khan when shooting in Bhopal.
"I am a woman in love and when you are in love, you cross boundaries." She also joked, "Saif and I contribute to air fare sales."
When probed on whether married actresses had a future in films, the diva retorted: "The fact that there are two married actresses on this stage receiving awards should answer your question."
Kapoor was referring to Sridevi, NDTV's Entertainer of the Year, who made a resounding comeback in last year's English Vinglish.
We would like to congratulate both actresses on their respective awards, and hope they continue to wow us on screen.
