As per ETimes she said, “I never gave an explanation because I was never offered that.”
Kareena added, “I don’t even know why I was put into that because I wasn’t the choice for the film. These all are made-up stories and I don’t want to put anybody down because even they need stories."
“Every day people are looking for some sort of stories on Instagram but I don’t know where it came from,” she added before concluding.
