But honestly, I don’t have time. I don’t even get time for myself. At present, I can’t think of anything apart from cricket. This is just the beginning of my career. But, in future, if I get a chance, I’ll think about it, and I’d like to have Kareena Kapoor as my co-star. She’s my favourite. I like all her films.”
