No more weight loss for Kareena

Kareena Kapoor has shot down rumours that filmmaker Karan Johar asked her to shed weight for a movie, saying that she is happy with the few pounds she has gained recently.

It was reported that Johar had told the 29-year-old actress to cut her hair short and lose weight so that she could carry off the skimpy outfits required for the role in his next film with Imran Khan, tentatively titled Short Term Shaadi.

“I read the report on the flight today, it is completely false news,” said Kareena.

“Karan has apparently said all this to the whole world but has not discussed anything with me. I am not going to lose any weight, I have gained a little recently and I am very happy with that,” she added.

Kareena plays Arjun Rampal’s girlfriend in We Are Family, which is based on the Hollywood film Stepmom. The actress is aware that comparisons with Julia Roberts, who played the role in the original, are inevitable.

“There are similarities between my character and Julia Roberts’, but this is almost my 40th film and I have a distinct style of my own. I portrayed the role the way the director visualised it,” said Mumbai-born Kareena.
