Kareena Kapoor Khan made her big Bollywood debut with 'Refugee', alongside Abhishek Bachchan. However, not many know that she was supposed to star opposite Hrithik Roshan in 'Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai'.
In a throwback interview with Filmfare, Kareena said that she would have definitely become a star if she hadn’t left the project, but she wanted to be known as an ‘actress’ instead. She said, “The film was made for Hrithik. His dad spent five hours on every frame and close-up of his, whereas not even five seconds were spent on Ameesha. There are portions in the film where she has pimples and under-eye bags on her face. She just doesn’t look beautiful, but every shot of his was a dream. If I were in the film, I would have definitely gotten a better deal, but I still feel that the attention would have been divided between us. So, I’m glad I didn’t do the film. I’m glad that even after I left the movie there was no problem between Hrithik and me. He’s still a friend, I’m very happy for his success and we are even working on two films together.”
In the same interview, Kareena added that even though her sister Karisma Kapoor made her career with filmmakers like David Dhawan, she doesn't want to work with him. According to her, she isn't like her sister and wants to do something different. The actress also added that she would do less work but she will only work with good filmmakers.
Kareena will next be seen in 'The Crew' co-starring Tabu and Kriti Sanon. The actress will also be making her digital debut with 'The Devotion of Suspect X'.
