Kareena Kapoor Khan said she will continue to bring something new with every character, despite being remembered for her popular roles like Poo from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) and Geet from Jab We Met (2007).

The two characters from the blockbuster movies form a pivotal part of her filmography and the actor said she still finds it difficult to step outside the box. “As an actor, you want to try and do something different every time. For me, it is difficult because I’ve been known for playing Poo and Geet. It has been fixed in people’s minds. So, it has been a conscious effort to do different things. They don’t think of the films that I’ve done in the past, including Omkara [2006], Dev [2004], Chameli [2003], and others. But I’m going to keep trying,” Kapoor told at the trailer launch of her upcoming film, Jaane Jaan.

Kapoor is set to make her digital debut with the Sujoy Ghosh directorial venture, which is an adaptation of the popular Japanese novel, Devotion of Suspect X.
The actor said one of the reasons she boarded the Netflix film was that she didn’t want to be left behind in exploring the streaming space. “I am more nervous than I was 20 years ago for the first time. People would be watching me so closely on their phones and TV screens. We have all worked hard. Sujoy has made a fantastic film. We have been trying to work together for over a decade,” she said.

The actor, 42, shared that she was first approached for the project when she was in Dharamshala with husband Saif Ali Khan, who was shooting for his movie, Bhoot Police at the time. “We were shooting in Dharamshala and I was pregnant with Jeh. Everything just came together. He [producer Jay Shewekramani] said Sujoy is excited and has been with the script for long. I said ‘Why don’t we do it for Netflix?’ Everyone is doing so much work there [on OTT] and I don’t want to be left behind,” she added.

Jaane Jaan also stars Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma, whom Khan described as “natural actors”.
