Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor, who has won as many as six Filmfare awards, feels her cousin Ranbir Kapoor is giving her tough competition and may soon break her record – but she adds that it would be a big moment for her.
“Since I was a child, I always thought I will win a Filmfare and give an acceptance speech, where I will thank my mother, father and family. My Filmfare trophies will follow me till my grave. Hopefully, not only six but many more,” said Kareena.
“But I have a very tough competition in my own family now. You never know, soon Ranbir might cross my record and that of my grandfather. But that would surely be a very joyous moment for our family,” added the 32-year-old.
While Kareena has six Filmfare trophies in her kitty, Ranbir has four and their grandfather, the legendary actor Raj Kapoor had won 11 Filmfare awards.
The newly-wed was speaking here at the 58th Idea Filmfare Awards 2012 press conference Tuesday. The award-giving ceremony is scheduled for Jan 20 next year at the Yash Raj Films (YRF) studios in Mumbai.
The fact that she belongs to the Kapoor family does put pressure on her. “The pressures are obviously there because there are so many names associated with it. But we are all taking it forward in our own way. Earlier it was me and Karisma Kapoor, but I am so glad that finally there is a man in the family (Ranbir),” said Kareena.
