Actress Kareena Kapoor says she misses the kind of relationship a celebrity and a journalist once used to share.
“My regret is that today there is no relationship left between a journalist and a star because there are 25 channels, there are 25 tabloids, there are 25 magazines. Every star is on the cover of a magazine, that’s no big deal. But I miss a relationship,” the 33-year-old said here Sunday at the launch of author Richa Lakhera’s book “Garbage Beat”.
Kareena said earlier interviews were more like conversations where you got to know the person better. “I have had relationship with two-three big journalists, who are now writers of my own movies and we would chat over an interview and the interview would not happen and you would just like chatting, chatting and chatting. So he would get to know the kind of person I am and he would write that,” she said.
Kareena plays a reporter in her next Satyagraha and says she is impressed with the aggression of real journalists.
“I think I am going to take inspiration from all of you (reporters). The aggression, the drive and the energy that all of you have like ‘I need to get this answer and will do anything for it’, you know, backstage, front stage, parties, premieres,” Kareena said.
“It’s a tough job that you all do and sometimes we are a little harsh. But I am going to take a little of your grit but not the questions,” she added.
Directed by Prakash Jha, Satyagraha also features Arjun Rampal, Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn and Manoj Bajpai.
