Kareena Kapoor Khan is the latest Bollywood star to join the bangwagon as she makes her television debut as a judge on the dance-based reality show Dance India Dance 7. She will be seen along side choreographer Bosco Martis and rapper Raftaar on the show, which has "dance ka jungistaan" as its theme this year. In fact, grand announcement commercial video featuring her was released recently and we must say, Bebo looked her glamorous best in the promo.
Now during a recent interaction with a leading daily, Kareena was asked about her much-awaited TV debut, to which she said, "I’m not a trained dancer and learnt it on the job. So, I’m going to approach this role in a fun manner. We are not only looking for great dancers on DID but also performers and stars, who can captivate the audience." When asked what kept her away from TV, she quipped, "I’m not a trained dancer and learnt it on the job. So, I’m going to approach this role in a fun manner. We are not only looking for great dancers on DID but also performers and stars, who can captivate the audience."
Meanwhile, speculations have been rife for long that Kareena's debut on DID 7 is one of the highest-paid television stints. When Kareena was asked to comment, she brushed it off by saying, "Honestly, I don’t get into the numbers, but I do believe that female stars deserve their due and I feel strongly about pay parity." Last but not the least, Kareena was questioned if she would stay limited to reality shows or is open to do something else on TV? The sctress concluded by saying, "I’m open to any prospect, provided that it excites me."
On the work front, Kareena will next star in Good News, Angrezi Medium and Takht.
