Kareena Kapoor’s chat show, ‘What Women Want’ is here and the actress got her mother-in-law Sharmila Tagore as her guest for the first episode. The veteran actress talked her heart out in revealing what she likes about Kareena and what not.
After talking about how she had to cut down on movies say no to great roles to balance work and life, Sharmila went on to reveal that the industry during her times was male centric and except for Amitabh Bachchan and rishi Kapoor no male actor would reach shoot location on time.
Kareena asked Sharmila to talk about their equation. “What is the one thing that you think I am good at and the one thing that you think I could improve at?” she asked.
Sharmila, who was all praise for her daughter-in-law for her consistency and how she keeps all in one thread, said that unlike Saif Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan, Kareena is always prompt in responding to text messages. “I like your consistency. I like the way you keep in touch because I know that if I sent you a message, you will invariably answer. Saif would, not Soha. Soha most certainly won’t reply. I mean, she will take time, but you will reply,” she said.
Kareena also ensures that Sharmila is well taken care of, whenever she visits them. “If I am coming to the house, you will ask me what I like to eat and I get what I want. That must be the Kapoor trait because you keep a wonderful table,” the 75-year-year old said.
When Sharmila’s husband Mansoor Ali Khan (Tiger) Pataudi was ailing, Kareena stood by the family like a rock. “I have seen you when Tiger was in the hospital and how you didn’t draw attention to yourself. It so happened that (September) 21st is your birthday and Tiger passed away on the 22nd. You were there and you were just like my children and my family. I really remember that. I have seen you during various stages, and you have been rather wonderful, I must say,” Sharmila said.
When asked where Kareena could improve, Sharmila could not find any fault. “I just wish you would stay this way because your temperament is such. I have seen you work with your staff… Some of us get very tense and make it difficult for others around us. You don’t do that; you are intuitive. So I just wish you will stay like this and not get uptight about anything,” she said.
Sharmila also talked the social media attention Taimur gets and howm’edia builds a person and suddenly dumps them’. She even went on to say when Anushka and Virat will have a child, Taimur might be ‘religated’ to which Kareena chirppingly replied, “I hope so’
Sharmila revealed Soha is the most stubborn one off all her three kids and but didged when asked who is the ‘apple of her eye’; Sara Ali Lhan, Ibrahim, Taimur and Innaya.
Earlier this week, Sharmila celebrated her 75th birthday with her family in Ranthambore. Saif, Kareena and Taimur were also present at the celebrations, and pictures of the trio on their way to a tiger safari and bonding over a bonfire surfaced online.
