Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who once enthralled audiences in an itsy bitsy bikini and size zero figure, says that phase is a thing of the past.
Kareena had famously lost weight for the 2008 film ‘Tashan’ and her bikini scene had caused quite the stir.
She has since regained weight. Here she is from last month, when she visited London:

Kareena has been asked to build her physique for Karan Johar’s next production ‘Shuddhi’, where she will star with the very buff Hrithik Roshan.
However Kareena isn’t quite a fan of action films. When asked if she’d ever consider a role where she needed to to challenge herself physically, she said, “I don’t like action films, they don’t excite me much. So I don’t know … not sure. I did it once in ‘Tashan’ and that is enough.”
The actress is also billed to star opposite Farhan Akhtar in a biopic on the life of renowned Urdu poet and Hindi lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi.
Akhtar will play the legendary songwriter and Kareena is likely to reprise the role of Amrita Pritam, who was the love interest of Ludhianvi.
“I have been offered the film and I am still in the process of reading it, I am going through it,” Kareena said.
This film will be produced by Ashi Dua and directed by Jasmeet Reen. Kareena had earlier walked out of one of Zoya Akhtar’s films but insists that that hasn’t strained her relationship with Zoya or Farhan.
“It’s an actor’s prerogative and choice to do a film or not. And I am friendly with Zoya and Farhan. They are wonderful, they keep offering me films,” she said.
Kareena will next be seen in Punit Malhotra’s ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’, that releases on November 22.
