Bollywood’s fit and fabulous Kareena Kapoor is on her way to turn 35, and she’s clear about not attempting to be 22!
She feels the key to ageing gracefully lies in letting the “lines” be, especially when it comes to men.
“I think one should age gracefully. I am proud to be 34 and I think aging is wonderful. I hate it when I look at somebody and know that they have tried to cover the lines,” Kareena told IANS in an interview on a recent visit to the capital.

Kareena also shared her thoughts about the prevalent nip-and-tuck trend to battle age-related troubles, when asked about it.
“I find men with lines on their faces more intelligent and sexy. Even for women, I think Maharani Gayatri Devi was very graceful. The way she aged with the grey hair – that is elegance,” added the wife of actor-producer Saif Ali Khan, who is 10 years her elder, and daughter-in-law of Bollywood’s ageless beauty, Sharmila Tagore.
There’s a notion that “Never ask a woman her age”, but Kareena said, “What’s wrong in telling your age”. (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor’s Next Film Deals With Mental Illness)
“I don’t want to be an 18-year-old or a 22-year-old girl. I am just done with that phase of my life. That is why I don’t even try to be 22,” added the actress.
“I’m 34 but I’m still endorsing an ice-cream, which people enjoy from an age of 6 to 60. That is an achievement in itself,” she said.
