Kareena on 12th Fail
Early on Friday, Kareena took to Instagram Stories and wrote, “12th Fail. Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Vikrant Massey, Medha Shankr, Anant V Joshi, Anshumaan Pushkar and the entire cast and crew, legend’s.”
Reposting the same on his Instagram Stories, Vikrant said, “Bas, ab mai retire ho sakta hu (Now I can retire). Thank you so so much ma’am! You have no idea what this means to me.”
Vikrant says Kareena looked gorgeous in Asoka
Vikrant Massey is a fan of Kareena. Both came together for a recent interview with Film Companion, during which, Vikrant said, “I have always given examples of people like Kareena mam. There are a lot of male actors, who I look upto. You cannot chase stardom. If you are consistent with the quality of work that you do and if you are good enough to convince people, or to sort of penetrate their system, and if they take the film back home, I think stardom is something… it’s a byproduct. We are talking about mam going beyond what she looks. When she did Asoka, as a movie fan I was like ‘Wow. She looked gorgeous.” “I don’t think you applied makeup,” he told Kareena.
