Mumbai, May 4 (IANS) Happily married to Saif Ali Khan, Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor says that just like any other regular couple they try to enjoy small pleasures of life by doing things together.
“Saif and I are just a regular couple and it’s nice to be able to enjoy dinner at our favourite restaurant without light bulbs flashing in our faces constantly,” Kareena told IANS in an interview.
She is appreciative of media for giving them their privacy.
“As a celebrity, being under constant media glare is a job hazard. But I truly appreciate the privacy the media has given me when it comes to my personal life,” she said.
Known for her great fashion and style sense, the actress seeks approval from her husband on what looks good on her.
“I seek approval from my man on how I look and what I should wear and Saif with his great taste gives some fabulous inputs,” said the actress who married Saif in October last year after dating him for five years.
Being at the top of her career, the actress of hits like “Jab We Met” is busy with endorsements, films and other events. But she makes sure to take out time for Saif, with whom she featured in big screen ventures “Tashan” and “Kurbaan”.
“Being from the same industry, Saif completely understands the pressure that comes with being an actor. While we never sideline our work, we ensure that we sneak in some ‘us time’ in the midst of our hectic schedules – be it catching up a movie together, a quiet dinner or an impromptu vacation,” she said.
The actress further added: “Saif has always been extremely supportive and encouraging and I’m really grateful to him for the same.”
From doing typical potboilers like “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham”, “3 Idiots” and “Bodyguard” to offbeat films like “Chameli”, “Dev” and “Omkara”, she has proved her mettle in the last 13 years.
After a long journey in showbiz, the actress, who will turn 33 in September this year, feels success is not far behind if you are committed to your job.
“When you enjoy what you do and when you give it all you’ve got, success will never be far behind. Always trust your instincts and have faith in your capabilities!,” said Kareena who will next be seen in “Satyagraha”.
