"I want a career like the late Zohra Sehgal's. At the age of 80, I want to be in front of camera," Kareena, who had worked with the veteran actress in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham..., said here.

Zohra Sehgal, who played character roles with aplomb in a career spanning both theatre and cinema, worked in a variety of films. She died in 2014 at the age of 102.

Talking of herself, Kareena said that "despite being married for quite a long time, still I am working in films".

"I have no qualms about doing item songs. For this, I would like to give all credit to my husband Saif Ali Khan. If Saif wouldn't have supported me, then it wouldn't have been possible for me to do anything," said the Jab We Met actress.

Ki & Ka is releasing on 1 April.
