Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kajol Thursday said that she will not mind doing an item number if its requirement is justified in the film. “I love watching item numbers and any film that is entertaining. If the film demands it and if the item number is adding to the film, helping take the story forward I don’t mind doing an item number,” she said when asked if she will be comfortable with it.
In conversation with filmmaker Karan Johar, Kajol was speaking on the third day of the 14th edition of Ficci-Frames 2013, the annual convention of the Media and Entertainment (M&E) industry here in Mumbai organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI).
However, Kajol who said that motherhood has added a new dimension to the actress in her, is not comfortable if her children watch item numbers.
Karan Johar, who described her as a prude and non-risque actress asked her if she would do a “The Dirty Picture”, she responded with a succinct “No”.
“I do not see myself pulling off a character like that,” she managed to add when pushed for a reason.
She also said that she has not been able to find a script that will drive her back into acting in films. “I do not mind an out of the box script, but I seriously feel there is a dearth of good, tight scripts. I have been an avid reader since I was eight-year-old. I have read a lot and hence, need to have a script that matches up to it,” she said.
