In Bollywood, two actresses can apparently never be friends. And if two of the industry’s top heroines are working with the same actor, there are bound to be comparisons — especially if the heroines in question are not exactly BFFs. And the actor to be stuck in the above situation is none other than Imran Khan.
The young Khan is working with actress Kareena Kapoor (in Short Term Shaadi) and actress Katrina Kaif, who’s also the rumoured ex-girlfriend of one of his close actor buddies Ranbir Kapoor (in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan).
It’s but natural to wonder who Khan had more fun shooting with. Throw this question at Khan and he doesn’t bat an eyelid before saying, “That would be Katrina for sure. The fun quotient was definitely more with Katrina.” But there’s a catch which you realise when you get past the cheekiness.
The actor, known to be outspoken, adds that he’s extremely fond of Kareena as well. “Kareena is one of my favourite actors. I’ve been a huge fan of hers for the longest time,” says Khan. “I’ve always been a little shy and quiet around Kareena — when I see her, I just remember all the films I’ve seen and adored her in. So I’m always on my good behaviour when she’s around,” he laughs.
So what is it that makes Khan bond so well with Kaif? He says that it helps that they are of about the same age, which is why, he can “just chill with her, like two friends. We are like buddies on the set. But with Kareena, I get tongue-tied.”
