Kareena Kapoor Opens Up On Splitting With Shahid Kapoor During Jab We Met's Shooting, 'Destiny Had Its Own Plan’
There was a time when Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor (now Khan) were among one of the most admired couples of B-town, thanks to their sizzling chemistry. The duo, who has worked together in several films, dated for a brief period; however, things didn’t go as planned and they soon announced separation. Well, now, both Shahid and Kareena have moved on in their lives with their respective partners. Years after their breakup, the Veere Di Wedding actress, in a recent interview with Film Companion, opened up on what went wrong.

The actress revealed that while on the sets of Imtiaz Ali’s Jab We Met, she was more excited about working in Tashan, which also starred Saif Ali Khan and that’s where love blossomed between the two. Bebo added that she lost weight for Tashan and became ‘size zero’ and couldn’t wait to work on it as she thought it would change her life and career. Kareena then revealed that it was Shahid, whom she was in a relationship at that point of time, who suggested her to consider the script of Jab We Met.

She said, “In fact, it was Shahid who said that I should hear this script of this film. He was like, ‘It’s amazing, the girl’s part is amazing and you should do it.’ He kind of actually got this entire project together and both of us ended up doing this film”. The actress then talked about their breakup and called it destiny’s plan. “Of course, then destiny had its own plan and life took its own course. A lot happened in the making of this film and Tashan and our lives... We all kind of went our separate ways. And this beauty of a movie came out of it.”


Elaborating further on how Tashan changed her life and Jab We Met changed her career, the actress revealed, “I think we just had to kind of do this movie at this time when Tashan was being made...and I met Saif. So I kind of did Tashan for that actually...when I actually thought that that was going to change my life and my career. But this (Jab We Met) changed my career and that (Tashan) changed my life. Because I did meet the man of my dreams and I did marry him.” (ALSO READ - Kareena Kapoor Khan Is Over Airport Looks; Says ‘Just Click Me In My 2 Patti Chappals I’m Fine’)
