I am a risk taker says Kareena Kapoor

I am a risk taker says Kareena Kapoor
Actor Kareena Kapoor has said that her primary reason for remaining a longtime is balance between commercial and alternative cinema.

In an interview to a news agency, she said, ‘I am always proud of my glamorous image. One has to enjoy some commercial success. If I have done an 'Udta Punjab', then I have also done the 'Golmaal' series. I have always tried to balance things out. To sustain in the film industry for 18 years one has to keep doing exciting work. I do films that suit my personality, my time limit. I do films that I like.

The actor says she has been a risk-taker right from the beginning of her career despite being a commercial heroine.

"When I was 22-year-old, I did 'Chameli' and people thought I would not do it. For me, it is all about having the right balance of things - commercial and being part of different kind of movies I just see - is this film entertaining, is the script good? Can I see myself in it and do I have a good part? When all these things fall in place I tick a film and I am on board. I don't think anyone joins the industry thinking, 'I want to become a star'. You join it because you like acting, you like movies, you are passionate about cinema. I enjoy acting and people like me, my work and that is why I am a star."

For her, there is a difference between being an actor and a star and she says she has always looked at herself first as an actor and then as a star.
