Kareena calls comparisons to younger actress unfair, says she would rather be compared to Sharmila Tagore, Hema Malini or Karisma Kapoor

WHY THE COMPARISON: Many people feel that Alia Bhatt is just like Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham's Poo (a role made famous by Kareena Kapoor Khan).

WHAT COMPARISON? Kareena feels the comparisons will stop soon and that "Alia will, in the course of time, find her own path." She believes that "this is a media-made comparison where they say she's like me and turn it around."

IRRITATED? "Not at all", says Bebo, but then adds, "I think it's unfair to compare us. I don't know why everything has to be a comparison to me!"

I LIKE ALIA: Says the senior actress, "Alia is stunning and her films are doing well. She's extremely watchable and that's why I like her. Whenever I meet her Alia is always so warm. She's wonderful and I am honoured that she gives me a lot of respect in her interviews and always speaks well of me. She's such a sweet girl. There's no harm in Alia being a fan and I love that."

COMPARISONS I DON'T MIND: "I'd love being compared to Sharmilaji (Saif's mother), Hema Malini and my own sister (Karisma Kapoor). They were all legends and though I don't think anybody can compare them to me, I wouldn't mind being compared to them because they are such lovely, graceful and stylish people."
