Kareena Kapoor, who is married to actor filmmaker Saif Ali Khan, says that she doesn't believe in Love Jihad. "Feeling of love" which, she says, can happen between two people regardless of caste, creed, or religion. "I believe only in the feeling of love," Kareena said.
"Saif has a very broad perspective and he also shared his perspective on 'Love Jihad' (via an open letter). He married a Hindu, which is me, and we had a civil marriage," said the actress. "I feel that love is something that you can't term. There is passion, there is lust... there are so many things. It can happen between two human beings," said Kareena.
"Now if somebody is Hindu and he or she starts loving a Muslim person, you can't stop them. You cannot ask somebody, 'Are you a Muslim or a Hindu?' and then fall in love. Love is a feeling, it's an emotion. That's why I don't believe in Love Jihad. I believe in the feeling of love," added the 34-year-old.
Co-incidentally her next film with Salman Khan "Bajrangi Bhaijan" is also about a Brahmin girl and Muslim boy. The "Bajrangi Bhaijan" team started shooting in the bylanes of Chandni Chowk, Delhi. "I am looking forward to working with Salman. We are like family. Before my marriage, he worked with me and now he is working with me after my marriage, so I am excited," said the actress who was seen with Salman in "Bodyguard".
With over a decade's experience, Kareena is now ready to experiment with new talent and she has as many as 25 scripts from new directors, "which I have not even started reading. I am going to read each and every script." "I have always worked with big directors and I am still working with big directors like Rohit Shetty and Kabir Khan, but now I want to work with somebody who is fresh.
