Bollywood: Kareena Kapoor seems rather tired of back-to-back film promotions on the television and in comments that could set off several frowns from either camps, the star has compared her profession to that of routine marketeers and has added that promos on TV reality shows are “useless”.
“I prefer those ‘meet and greet’ events at shopping malls because we get to know our fans and they get to see us, But I do not like to visit reality shows. I feel people love to watch Kapil (In Comedy Nights with Kapil) more than us. My mum loves to watch him too and she watches Jhalak too… keenly, for the performances. The performers on these reality shows are just great. And she says that we are just a distraction when we are on the sets of these show,” the actress said.
She explained further. “I like talking to people. I really like sitting in a group and talking about an upcoming film and answering questions from the media and beyond all this, it doesn’t feel very great. I also believe if people love well-done promos, they will watch the film. For example, so many films have been promoted right, left and centre, but have not received great openings at all.”
