It is quite a responsibility to always be stylish, actress Kareena Kapoor said at the launch of her book – ‘The Style Diary of a Bollywood Diva’ recently.
The book has Kareena’s take on styling and has been published by Shobhaa De Books and Penguin India.
“When (writer Shobhaa) De called me for this book, I thought I might write a book when I’m 60. What if something more interesting happens 20 years later? But she said it was going to be a style diary. Then I realised: ‘Yes, I’m stylish and I should take the compliment. I took the responsibility of how it feels like to be a style diva,” she said.
She also said the book had something for everyone. “There is something for people from 14 to 35 years. My husband is 40 plus so there has to be something for the 40 plus,” Kareena, who co-wrote the book with Rochelle Pinto, said.
She said one would get to know more about her through this book. “As you turn the pages, you get to know Kareena more.” As for an autobiography, the actress said she would think about writing that one day.
“I don’t want to write about my struggles. People know about that and I don’t think that’s interesting,” she said. “This style diary is something that reflects my style personality. I don’t know what my next book would be but if at all I write, it will be an autobiography. Autobiography definitely but not now,” she said.
She also admitted she had lost weight and said she was practicing a new style of yoga.
“Nice to hear the compliment that I have lost weight. Yes, I have lost weight and I'm following a new style of yoga which is very tiring. But I’m enjoying it.”
Sporting a black knee-length dress with a golden belt, Kareena said women looked best in saris. “I think a woman looks best in sari. Saif always tells me to wear sari. I think the problem is we always try to ape the west. But we have to dress according to the occasion. Sometime saris, sometimes dress,” the 32-year-old said.
