Kareena Kapoor Khan is a superstar who was born and brought up in a family filled with Bollywood actors. When one normally meets her, they don’t expect to talk about the world and politics. Often, Kareena is perceived to be someone who lives in a bubble.
Everybody today gets fired for voicing their opinions. So, is it really important? I don’t know. Contrary to what people think, I don’t live in a bubble. Everybody makes fun of my space cadet behaviour, but I am extremely aware of what’s going on around me. My morning newspapers are nothing to do with gossip at all, but in fact, I read up on the latest news happening in India and the world. Over the last two years, I wait to sit with my chai and read up on current affairs. I may not voice my opinion in public because I don’t need to be vociferous to show how involved I am in current affairs or reading the newspapers. But if somebody asks me, of course, I will have an opinion. But I have not been asked and secondly, I am not on Twitter, so I don’t get up in the morning and tweet my opinions.
