Kareena Kapoor seems to have angered the fans of the Tamil superstar Suriya by saying she doesn’t know him.
"It is a fact that I don’t know him," she says. "I’ve never met him! But that doesn’t mean I don’t know who Suriya is. Of course I know him. He’s a big star in Tamil cinema, in fact, one of the biggest. I truly respect his standing in the Indian film industry. In fact, I’m doing the sequel to Singham, the film where he played the lead originally in Tamil cinema.”
Kareena says she was upset because of reports that she was doing an item song in the Suriya-starrer Anjaan.
“I had never met the film’s director Linguswamy nor agreed to do any song or dance for his film. So how could he be quoted saying that I was doing a song for his film?”
Kareena says she would love to work with Suriya whenever he does a Hindi film. “He is tremendously talented. It would be a pleasure and honour to work with him."
