Q Cocktail, your upcoming film is about being in love with two women at the same time. Have you ever been in a similar situation in life?
A Being in love with two people at the same time is an alien emotion for me. When you are in love with a person, you just want him/her intensely.
Well, you may run out of that feeling after a while, but that’s a different thing. When you are at the peak of your love for a person, you can’t have feelings for someone else. Love is exclusive.
Q However, you and your ladylove Kareena Kapoor have never really clicked as a romantic couple on screen. Would you reconsider working together in the future?
A I think people would rather see us with other people. Both of us are happy with the idea of working with others and coming home to each other. That’s a good situation. But mind you, she does say, “All the roles we have done together are like diffusing nuclear bombs”.
Q Do you think it’s important to be married before you have kids?
A To each their own. Having children is a serious responsibility and when you are married, it’s a public promise. Also, to a woman it lends security. When one isn’t married, there are no legal ramifications if one decides to separate.
For a woman who has a child, it isn’t a very comfortable situation if her boyfriend suddenly decides to disappear.
Q Is your daughter Sara interested in acting? Will you be okay with the idea and support her?
A Obviously I will support her in whatever she decides to do. She is at an age where she wants to be everything, a doctor, a lawyer or an actor — depending on which day you speak to her. I think she should go to a good university and educate herself well and then decide what she wants to do.
Q There are rumours about your sister Soha’s boyfriend Kunal Khemu not being accepted by the family.
A I have no idea about this since he is very much a part of the family. He stayed in Pataudi a few times. We are all very fond of him. So he is very much accepted in the family.
