I am immune to success and failure: Kareena Kapoor

Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, whose last film 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein' did not do well at the box office, says she isn't dejected by the failure of the movie.

Imran Khan and Kareena made the audience fall in love with them with their first outing 'Ek Main Aur Ek Tu'. The two teamed up again for Karan Johar's home production but the romantic comedy which released last month failed ton create magic at the box office.

"I think because 'Ek Main Aur Ek Tu' was a lovely film so there were expectations from this film 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein'. I think the script let us down in a very bad way. That (script) is the most important factor of a film. In 'Ek Main Aur Ek Tu' it was lovely script, fantastic story. It was new... you have never seen an actress saying she doesn't want to live with the guy," Kareena told PTI in an interview.

After achieving so much success in Bollywood the failure of a film at this point of her career doesn't bother Kareena.

"The failure of a film doesn't bother me much today. It is like you become immune to success and failure. It is like a balance. I have seen too much of that in the industry. But that is how it works, it happens with everyone. You get success, failure equally in same line... so it's okay," the 33-year-old star said.

Meanwhile, Kareena is happy to associate with an initiative by Star network to highlight the issue of women safety. She will champion the use of Channel V's 'VithU' app for this.

"When my PR team was talking to me about this app that time Star network was thinking about it... I felt this is the app I want to support. It has to come from within... it is something you should feel. Actors have a voice that does reach a lot of people and if we can use it for a cause it is great.
I think women safety in India is important today... I have a young niece at home, have a sister," Kareena said.

"By March 2014, they are going to start another app where you can click a picture and send to the four guardians you have put on your app, on phone. They will be able to trace your location. So that is another feature, which will help benefit further," she added.

Kareena reveals the eventual plan is to get the government involved and work towards women safety. But she does feel there is a long way to go.

"The way men and women are standing up for their rights together... I think we are moving towards a more democratic space. I feel it can get better. The laws are being re-assessed which is a good thing," she added.

On the Tarun Tejpal case, Kareena said, it is disappointing when somebody of his stature... such a high post and educated man does this. I think it is something to do with the mind. I am quite sure justice will be done. Cases are being taken up, at least the wheel is moving. It can't be immediate and fast but somewhere the law is taking its course.
Nobody can run away from that.
