Though Kareena Kapoor hasn't impressed many fans with her performance in her recent movies, she managed to remain the quintessential Bollywood star. In an interview with Bombay Times, the actress opened up about the same and revealed that it's her honesty towards her work and loved ones that sets her apart from others. Mentioning that she is extremely passionate about whatever she does, Bebo added:

"I think, most importantly, I am honest to my work, to myself, my loved ones and I am honest to the characters that I portray on screen. Somehow, I feel that when we are not being true to our profession and are doing things for the sake of it, people can tell. So, for me it is always like that – whether I am talking to someone, whether I love someone, or I am performing on screen, I do it all very passionately. So, I think that somehow does set me apart, because I am extremely passionate about whatever I do."

"The box office will always matter, but obviously, I am not competing with anyone. I am in a happy space because I have always chosen to do what I want to do, and I am lucky with that. When I wanted to get married, I did, and it was when no actress was getting married. Today, so many actresses are getting married! It is suddenly cool to be married and working. Earlier, it was about not having children. Then suddenly, it was like…okay you can have a child as well and still be working. I have always done things that I love and believe in."
