kareena:mani ratnam is in a class of his own
The name is Kapoor. Kareena Kapoor.
The 23 year-old, who began her career in 2000 with J P Dutta's Refugee, has already worked with the industry's best filmmakers including Karan Johar, Sooraj R Barjatya and Subhash Ghai.
But Mani Ratnam's name was missing from her oeuvre. With Yuva, this dream too has been realised.
In a conversation with Chief Correspondent Syed Firdaus Ashraf, the Kapoor girl gushes as to why Ratnam is 'in a class of his own'.
"I always wanted to work in the Mani Ratnam school of [making] films. I wanted to know what it is like to work [with Ratnam]. I am satisfied to be a part of it.
The girls [Rani Mukerji, Esha Deol and Kareena] don't have much of a role in Yuva. I did it [the film] because of Mani Ratnam.
