Kareena Kapoor On Chandrayaan-3 Landing: ‘I Will Be Watching It With My Boys’

Kareena Kapoor said she’s’ waiting with ‘bated breath for the landing.

Kareena Kapoor, who was once trolled for not knowing about Mangalyaan, has said she’s excited about Vikram Lander attempting a landing on the Moon.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched the ambitious Chandrayaan-3 mission from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota on July 14. ISRO has announced that the landing of Vikram will be tried slightly past 6 pm on August 23 (Wednesday). If successful, India will join an exclusive group of countries – the United States, Russia, and China – as the fourth nation to softly land on the Moon. The recent setback of Russia’s Luna-25 mission opens a window for India to become the pioneer in achieving a soft landing on the Moon’s south pole.

Kareena Kapoor, on being asked about the excitement surrounding it during an event, said she’s waiting for it. “It’s a great moment for India – a proud moment for each and every Indian. You feel that pride in your heart. We are all waiting to watch it. I’m going to do that with my boys. I’m waiting for bated breath,” she said.

Back in 2014, when many Bollywood celebrities shared their joy regarding the launching of the Mangalyaan satellite into Mars orbit, Kareena Kapoor was unaware of the development and had struggled to understand its significance.

During a hair product launch, when a member of the media asked her about her views on Mangalyaan in Hindi, Kareena’s response was, “What!!??” Once the question was explained in English, she acknowledged that it’s a big achievement for the country and went on to add that she would love to go to space someday.

On the work front, Kareena Kapoor is currently shooting for The Crew, along with Tabu and Kriti Sanon. The film, backed by Rhea Kapoor and directed by Rajesh Krishnan, revolves around the lives of three women and their struggles in the aviation industry. Kareena also has Sujoy Ghosh’s The Devotion of Suspect X with Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma in her kitty.
