Kareena Kapoor is quite confident that Ra. One will make Rs.200 crores. The actress is now called the 100 crore girl considering she is the only heroine in the history of Indian cinema who is a part of the films that has crossed 100 crores, Golmaal 3 (2008), 3 Idiots (2009) and Bodyguard (2010). As of Tuesday, Bodyguard has netted Rs. 128 crore across India with a worldwide gross of Rs. 215 crore.
A visibly excited Kareena said, “I spoke to Salman in the US post his surgery. We congratulated each other on our huge success and he asked me how it felt to feature in the No 1 and No 2 films of the year. I wondered which was which and he said we’d chat about it once he got back,” chuckles the actor, who after 3 Idiots and Golmaal 3, is being touted as the Rs 100 crore heroine.
Kareena admits that after they picturized the romantic ‘Teri Meri Prem Kahani’, she was quite confident that the movie would create history. “But I wasn’t expecting my movies to be competing with each other in terms of box-office collections. It’s something I’ve dreamt of for years, worked hard towards, and today, have no time to enjoy because I’m so busy.” The actress has now set her eyes on Ra. One, the mega-budget movie starring and produced by Shah Rukh Khan. “If Bodyguard made Rs 100 crore, then RA.One will make Rs 200 crore,” asserts Kareena, who plays a sweet and simple Punjabi wife and mother.
Kareena says, “Shah Rukh has done something spectacular.” The film’s music released on Monday with a live concert and she’s overwhelmed by the craze Chamak Challo has generated. “Everyone was waiting to see the full track. My fans like me in a sari, so do I. And now that the Size zero chapter is out of my life forever, I have the curves to carry off the desi girl look to perfection.” Kareena is equally confident of the romantic track ‘Oh Dildara’ – “It’s a typical love song and I’m romancing Shah Rukh Khan. Wow!”
