I'm affected by my films failure: Kareena Kapoor Khan addresses Lal Singh Chaddha and Heroine debacle

Kareena Kapoor Khan has delivered multiple box office blockbusters in her career. But like in the career of any artist, Kareena too suffered setbacks. Addressing the same, in one of the recent interviews, Kareena shared that the box office failure does affect her.

She said, “I am such an emotional person, I am affected. So, if I am affected by something, I just show. And I think that was what happened with Heroine, because I really worked hard on the film and I wanted it to be... Everyone was winning national awards for Madhur’s film and somewhere we went wrong. But I still feel that it was one of my amazing performances. But then I had to strike that balance, like I have to do the commercial, I had to do this and I like doing that.” 

Kareena's last theatrical release Lal Singh Chaddha with Aamir Khan faced harsh criticism, both at the box office and among the audience. She accepted although she didn’t meet Aamir right after the film was released, she later wrote him a long message saying this doesn’t affect their friendship.

“After the film I was busy. I gave birth, I had another child during Covid. There was so much going on at that time, so I never really met Aamir after the film. But then obviously after that I bumped into him at the NMACC event and I know, I saw it in his eyes that he was he was a bit apologetic, he was sad about the fact why did this happen. We have also done some great work together, with a big blockbuster like 3 Idiots, then Talaash… So, somewhere there was that feeling. For me Roopa will always be an iconic character which I played because she was slightly dark. And he was also worried about that. He was like, zyada dark toh nahi ho jayega character. I was like, nahi thik hai, it’s fine, that arc we have to show. I told him on a long Whatsapp that don’t feel that we have lost because we haven’t. We made a beautiful film and our friendship and our love is not measured by box office success," quoted the actress.
