New Delhi, Jul 3 (UNI) At a time when Bollywood actresses are falling over each other to acquire what her curvaceous sister has already flaunted on the silver screen and what they call size-zero figure, Karishma Kapoor says there is no such thing called ''size zero or super skinny figure'' and all the hue and cry over the issue was ''meaningless and uncalled for''.
Talking to UNI here this afternoon, Karishma, who was in town in connection with a private event, said, ''Kareena slimmed down to 48 kg for Yash Chopra's 'Tashan', but I think there was nothing extraordinary about it. The movie demanded such kinds of looks and she worked hard to acquire that. I don't know why there was so much ho-hum over her figure in the flick.'' ''We both love gorging on food, but somewhere we have to draw the line and keep a check on what we are eating because the demands of our profession are different from those of others,'' she added.
''Kareena is doing very well for herself. I am very happy for her and about the fact that others are emulating what she has already done. It's a very good feeling seeing your little sister growing into a hardcore professional as well as a very versatile actress,'' the actor gushed.
Asked when the two sisters, Lolo and Bebo, would be seen together on the big screen, Karishma said, ''Though we are getting some very good scripts and offers featuring both of us, we have yet to decide on them and as and when something is finalised the whole world would get to know about it. There will be lot at stake and even we would like to do justice to our jobs.'' Karishma, who has long been in hibernation since entering wedlock, said, ''It is not that I have severed my links with Bollywood. Yeah, I do admit that it's been long since I was last seen on the silver screen, but I will certainly stage a comeback whenever I come across some meaningful role.'' Karishma, however, sounded evasive when a query was hurled at her regarding the ''impending'' marriage of Kareena with actor Saif Ali Khan, saying,'' I don't think I should comment on that as it is a private matter between two individuals. So, I think that matter should not be touched upon.'' How does she react to entertainment entering the sports arena? the actress, who stepped into tinselville with a forgettable 'Prem Qaidi', said,'' It is good that entertainment has entered sports, like in IPL and these are the two things which have interested the people of the country like anything. So, the two joining hands will definitely usher in a very good era, which will be fruitful for both.'' UNI RL SKB BD1703
