MUMBAI — Kareena Kapoor Khan is known for playing glamorous roles in movies. The 34-year-old "Ki and Ka" star said pulling off a glamorous image comes naturally to her. Khan plays a successful, working woman in her latest movie. As seen during the promotion of the film, Khan's personal wardrobe is envy-aspiring.
She is undoubtedly one of the most stylish divas of the Indian film industry, and the Bollywood actress says looks are as important as choosing a good role.
"I like to be glamorous. That is what I am known for. It is a very important part of me. People like to see me in a glamorous way, and I love being that. For me looking good is as important as signing a good film," Khan told PTI.
However, the actress doesn't like the way being glamorous is perceived at large.
"I feel glamorous is generally considered not graceful. And I don't like it that way. I think it's very graceful and elegant. Whenever you see me, I am always elegantly dressed."
Khan feels that for a woman, it is very important to be dressed properly and be graceful.
"For me the most important thing is to be graceful. Grace is something which should come to a woman organically. It comes from within. Rather than looking sexy, a woman should work on her grace," she said.
The actress is the face of a makeup brand and loves dressing up for red carpets, but, when it comes to her personal life, she prefers to ditch the dose of it.
"I am an actress, so, for me, doing makeup is an everyday thing. I personally love wearing kajal and bright lip colors. But, when it comes to my day-to-day life, I avoid it," she said.
Khan, who has made some stunning appearances in a saree, also endorsed the Indian attire and urged women to wear it as much as possible.
"A saree is something I always love to wear. I endorse it as the most beautiful attire a woman can get into. I feel as actresses we should encourage our fans to get draped, be it through the red carpet or any other medium," she said.
For the Lakme India Fashion Week 2016 finale, where she turned showstopper for Rohit Bal, Khan was dressed in a royal blue lehenga with gold chandbala (moon-shaped) motifs and red floral embroidery. The creation was a part of Bal's collection "Koroshini," which in Urdu means illuminate.
