Believe me, even if it is a year back from now, you simply won’t be able to decipher certain things and situations changing even before you can imagine in the past one year!

But what if we talk about a situation (read potential relationship) of about 17 years back? Life can go hither and thither, right? While often it is rightly said that digging into the past is not a good idea, but sometimes, mind us, only sometimes, it doesn’t harm to retrospect! And if you look back into 2001, the personal lives of our celebrities too, were so different! So let’s go into a retrospection mode, wherein we take you back in 2001, when something hot was brewing between Kareena Kapoor and an already married man, Hrithik Roshan!
Back in those days, Kareena was famous for her explosive and extremely honest interviews. In an interview of the same genre for Filmfare, Kareena openly shared how married men were not her thing and denied any possible linkups with Hrithik. She had then shared, “Please give me a break. I am neither besotted with married men nor will I have affairs with them. Married men would be detrimental to my career. Ask the producers, directors and distributors why all of them are hell-bent on signing Duggu (Hrithik Roshan) and me together. Quite obviously because we are a hot pair." Woot! Looks like Kareena made some sheer changes in her mindset from 2007! (Also Read: Hrithik Roshan's Love Life: Parents Had To Intervene To Ask His Co-Star To Stay Away From Him)
She had also revealed one of the most irritating habits of Hrithik and shared, “That's because he is such a child. He has this irritating habit of taking soooo long in front of the mirror before a shot. On the sets of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham even Kajol would get irritated with him. Especially since it is very hot on the sets.''
Comparing her and Hrithik’s jodi to that of Amitabh and Rekha and boasting that they look ‘smashing together’, Kareena had then stated, “We're being hyped like the Amitabh Bachchan-Rekha, Dharmendra-Hema Malini pair. That's not fair to us at all. Yaadein was a family drama, not a love story. In Sooraj Barjatya's Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon, you'll see us as a romantic pair. But you can't deny that we look smashing together. So the audience will just have to hold their horses for a while.''
Needless to say, from the very beginning, Hrithik has looks that can kill anyone! Speaking about if the actress has ever been deviated by the former’s looks, Kareena had shared, “I am here to act. It does not bother me whether my co-star is Fardeen Khan, Abhishek Bachchan or Hrithik Roshan. Please I am not distracted by crowds, heat or big names. Only food can distract me. Actually, I've even kicked my obsession with food.'' (Don't Miss! Boney Reveals How He Fell For Sridevi In This Throwback Interview, Would've Built Taj Mahal For Her)
Back then, unable to see what’s in store for her in the future, Kareena had boastfully shared that there will be no married men for her! Hear it from the star’s past interview itself, “Yes, no married men for me. But why is infidelity being made such an issue? Men cheat on their women, that's as old as the hills. It's possible for a man to love more than one woman. But hey, it's possible for a woman to be in love with more than one man too. That is fair and square. But what frustrates me is when men don't own up to the women they love. Men can be quite gutless.''

And then, Kareena revealed the situation when she would straightaway slaughter her man! The Khushi star had shared, “There's a difference between love and attraction. I wouldn't like my man to cheat on me. Neither would I cheat on him. If I found out that my man's unfaithful, I'd slaughter him. No tears, no shor-sharaba." Oops! Be careful, Saif!
And then came one of the most interesting conversations in the interview when Kareena spoke about marriage. She had shared that she would someday marry ‘some rich NRI and have brood of kids’! Yes, that’s exactly what she had said. Kareena shared, "Soon..or maybe never. I will stick around for another five years. Then I will marry. Maybe I'll marry some rich NRI and have a brood of kids. Marriage is sacred, but I won't take nonsense from any man. If I'm not happy from within I'll snap out of it. Know, something? I wish I could marry Richard Gere."

Back then, Kareena, who was single, wouldn’t let men come near her. Why? The Chameli star had then shared, “I've never let men come close to me. I am too scared. I can't handle the pain, the distractions, the heartache. It's always been women who have left a lasting impression. I am single because I am too crazy, I am too involved with my work. Maybe I intimidate men. In any case, I can't call up eligible men and ask them to go out with me.''
Time to come back in 2018 again! Rumours had it that soon after, Kareena and Hrithik’s relationship went in for a toss. But as per a last year report, Kareena and Hrithik had attended a party together last year (2017), and met each other cordially. It was reported, “Hrithik and Kareena exchanged pleasantries when they met at the Ambani party hosted by Nita and her daughter Isha. They chatted briefly for some time, spoke about their children and were very warm in their brief exchange." (Checkout!
