    Kareena Kapoor (24)

    Kareena Kapoor Hindi: करीना कपूर. born 21 September 1980 nicknamed "Bebo" is a four-time

    Filmfare Award-winning prominent Indian actress who appears in Bollywood movies.
    Making her acting debut with Refugee (2000), for which she won a Filmfare Best Debut Award,
    Kapoor had her first commercial success with her second release, Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai
    (2001). Her performance as a cosmetic beauty in Karan Johar's melodramatic Kabhi Khushi
    Kabhie Gham (2001) was praised and the film turned out to be her biggest commercial success
    so far. After that, Kareena starred in many films without much box office success. She was
    criticized for doing the same kind of roles in her films. As a result of this, she began
    taking on more serious and different roles. Her portrayal of a sex-worker in Sudhir
    Mishra's Chameli (2004) proved to be the turning point in her career. Her performances in
    critically acclaimed films like Dev (2004) and Omkara (2006) were praised and fetched her
    two Filmfare Critics Award for Best


    During her career years, she has appeared in many films, majority of them bringing her

    critical acclaim rather than commercial success.[3] Despite this, she retains popularity

    and is regarded as one of the most
    versatile actresses of the industry.[4]

    Early life
    Kareena attended Jamnabai Narsee School in Mumbai and then went to Welham Girls Boarding
    School in Dehradun. After studying commerce at Mithibai College, Vile Parle for two years,
    Kapoor went to Harvard for summer school and took a course in microcomputers and
    information technology for three months.[5] Set on pursuing an acting career, she then took
    an admission in Government Law College at Churchgate to become a lawyer. After completing
    one year there, she went back to her initial plan of joining the film industry, where
    she attended the Kishore Namit Kapoor acting school.
    Kapoor had planned to debut in Rakesh Roshan's Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai but left the project a
    few days into the filming.[8] She made her debut in J.P. Dutta’s moderately successful
    Refugee in 2000 with Abhishek Bachchan and won critical acclaim for portraying the role of
    a Pakistani girl.[9] The role earned her a Filmfare Best Debut Award and the film went on
    to become the fifth highest grossing film of that year.

    In 2001, films like Yaadein and Asoka followed for her which did poorly at the box office.
    However her breakthrough performance of a princess in the latter was acclaimed and earned
    her a Filmfare nomination for Best Actress. Her next release, Ajnabee fared moderately well
    and became one of the highest grossing films of that year.[11] Success followed for her
    with films like Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. The former became one
    of the biggest hits of that year and the latter became the second highest grossing film of
    2001.These successes established her as one of the industry's most successful stars.
    Kapoor was in great demand after these successes and signed many new movies, but most of
    them failed to do well.[14] Even much-hyped films like Mujhse Dosti Karoge! (2002) and Main
    Prem Ki Diwani Hoon (2003) that came from big banners like Yash Raj Films and Rajshri
    Productions failed to do well in India,[15][16] but generated decent business overseas.
    Many critics criticized her for doing the same kind of roles in her films, which led to her
    attempting different types of roles in the following years.[18]

    Turning Point
    In 2004, Kapoor began working with art film directors and doing more serious roles that
    brought her critical acclaim rather than commercial success. Her role of a prostitute in
    the 2004 film, Chameli proved to be a turning point in her career and made critics take
    notice of her once again,[18] earning her the Filmfare Special Performance Award. She also
    gained critical acclaim for her de-glamorized role in the critically acclaimed Dev,[19] for
    which she won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance, and her negative role in
    Fida. Her other films in 2004 included the moderately successful Aitraaz and the semi-
    hit Hulchul.
    She followed through with moderately successful films like Bewafaa and Dosti: Friends
    Forever in 2005. Her performance as an unfaithful woman in the former was well received
    by critics.
    36 China Town was Kareena's first release in 2006 followed by Chup Chup Ke. Both films
    managed to do moderately well at the box office.[24] Her performance as Desdemona in the
    Indian adaptation of William Shakespeare's Othello, Omkara was praised,[25] earning her a
    Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance and a Star Screen Award for Best Actress. Her
    performance in the film also landed her various nominations for Best Actress at different
    award ceremonies including the Filmfare Awards. In the same year, she also won favorable
    reviews for her item number in the hit movie Don - The Chase Begins Again.

    Personal life
    Born into an old and influential film family of Punjabi origin in Mumbai, Maharashtra,
    India, Kareena's name was inspired by the book, Anna Karenina.[27] Kapoor is the grand-
    daughter of Raj Kapoor, who acted in and directed many successful movies and is also the
    great grand-daughter of Prithviraj Kapoor. Kareena was born to actors Randhir Kapoor and
    Babita, who had divorced when she was still young.[28] Her uncle is well-known and popular
    actor, Rishi Kapoor. Her sister, Karisma Kapoor, is also a popular actress. Other living
    relatives include maternal aunt Sadhana, and cousins Ranbir Kapoor and Nikhil Nanda.
    Kareena is currently dating actor Shahid Kapoor, the son of veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor.
    Gossip columnists have linked her to a number of her co-stars, but she has strongly denied
    all these rumors.
    In 2005, Kareena was in the news when onlookers with mobile phone cameras filmed her
    kissing her boyfriend Shahid Kapoor and released it to the news.
