On the Season 7 of Dance India Dance, where she is one of the judges, she revealed the name of that actor whom she was infatuated with. Just for him, she apparently watched his debut film 8 times.

Apart from this, Kareena also hosted a chat show titled What Women Want on Ishq 104.8 FM, where she would invite several renowned personalities and converse with them on topics ranging from career, motherhood to women empowerment.

The 38-year-old also walked for the Lakme Fashion Week recently, which had #FreeYourLips as the theme, indicating freedom of expression. Kareena wore a Gauri & Nainika creation, which was an all-black off-shoulder ensemble, layered with silk and net. While talking about the theme, she said, "The theme, for me, is about freedom for women to make the choice of what they want to do."
"The freedom of what women want, whether it's (about) being married, wanting to work, wanting to make your voice heard. The fact that I live the way I want to, on my own terms is what I think is the best quality I've," she asserted.
