Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who recently kickstarted the shoot of her upcoming film ‘The Crew’, has shared that she likes to keep a healthy mix of mainstream and off-beat films in her filmography. Her titular role in ‘Chameli’ is a testament to that.

The Sudhir Mishra film which released almost 2 decades ago, saw Kareena playing the role of a s*x worker – a brave choice for an actress in that era. The film received many accolades for its storytelling and the Yuva actress’ performance. It proved to be a milestone in her career.

Talking about making brave choices, Kareena Kapoor Khan told IANS: “I have always been a risk-taker and it’s because of my passion for acting. That’s the reason behind me doing a ‘Golmaal’ and an off-beat film like ‘Omkara’, a ‘Yuva’ or a ‘Chameli’.”

Bebo’s, chat show ‘What Women Want‘ streaming on Mirchi Plus has been receiving a lot of appreciation. Though she comes from the first film dynasty of India – the Kapoor clan but being a star was never on her mind. Instead, it has always been about honing her craft as an artist.

Kareena Kapoor Khan further mentioned: “It was never on my mind to become a star. I come from a certain background, so back then, I thought that being an exceptional actor, it may happen or it might not happen but to try and give my 100 per cent to the part that I essay is not just my duty but also the responsibility that comes with the privilege.”

“I was 21 years old when I played Chameli at a time when nobody was doing films like that. Today, I’m 42 and people still talk about that film. It really built up a certain perception in the minds of the audience about my work. So, I have always had a good mix of commercial mainstream and that of the off-beat cinema and I would like to keep it that way. Even now you will see me in ‘The Crew’ which is more women-centric and commercial and also working in the Indian adaptation of ‘The Devotion of Suspect X'”, she concluded.
