Excerpts from the interview:
Karan- You’re cousins but is there a wide gap between you in real life?
Kajol- Not really! No!
Karan- So you’re literally meeting after 10 years on a sofa?
Rani- On a sofa?
Kajol- Yeah! It was chairs earlier! (Laughs)
Karan- Alright! But there is always this kind of media speculation that you don’t get along and though you’re members of the same family there is no interaction!
Kajol- It is really nothing like that! Basically it’s more like she’s Tanisha’s age. So for me it’s another generation really! For me she is like a younger sister!
Rani- And I was always closer to Tanisha, than to her.
Karan- Shahrukh you have no problems with anybody?
Shahrukh- I don’t have time to have any problems with anybody!
Karan – Other heroes go through affair issues and with their other liaisons with their heroines and you are just constantly fighting with men, not women. You are only linked with men, not women!
Shahrukh- I truly am the last action hero!
Karan- If Shahrukh, Kajol and you were on a plane which was about to crash and there were only two parachutes on board, which you had control over, what would you do?
Kajol- Dude, I’m family!
Rani- I would probably stay behind and give the two parachutes because, really, people want to see them together!
Kajol- Stop! Please Stop!
Shahrukh- Tum dono mujhe chipak jaana .. teeno neeche aa jayenge! Kya hai problem yaar! Main Hoon na!
