Kareena Kapoor said that when she was on the sets of Imtiaz Ali’s Jab We Met. She was more excited about working in Tashan. She said she was the lead in Tashan. It had lost weight for it, become ‘size zero’ and couldn’t wait to begin work on it as she thought. It would ‘change her life and career’. Kareena added that it was Shahid. Whom she was dating at the time, who asked her to consider the script of Jab We Met.
Ever since her breakup with Shahid Kapoor in 2006, Kareena Kapoor has rarely talked about it. However, in a recent interview with Film Companion’s Anupama Chopra, the actor talked in detail about working with him in Jab We Met, the breakup and how she met her husband Saif Ali Khan on the sets of Tashan soon afterwards.
“In fact it was Shahid who actually said that I should hear this script of this film. He was like, ‘It’s amazing, the girl’s part is amazing and you should do it.’ He kind of actually got this entire project together and both of us ended up doing this film,” she said. Talking about the breakup she said, “Of course, then destiny had its own plan and life took its own course. A lot happened in the making of this film and Tashan and our lives… We all kind of went our separate ways. And this beauty of a movie came out of it.”
