Kareena Kapoor Biography:
She’s one of the hottest actress’ in the world…. Hails from a family of noteworthy actors…. Popularly known as the “size zero” girl…. Kareena Kapoor aka “bebo” of bollywood….
Kareena is Raj Kapoor’s (film maker) granddaughter, Prithviraj Kapoor’s (actor) great-granddaughter, and Rishi Kapoor’s (actor) niece. Babita, kareena’s mother says that Kareena was named so because during her pregnancy Babita was reading through Anna Karenina’s book and that’s where the name “Kareena” was derived.
Kareena remembers herself as a naughty, spoilt baby who always modeled around in her mother’s dresses!…. there was a time in bebo’s life when her parents separated because bebo’s father disapproved of women making a career in the Hindi film industry….during this “rough” patch….bebo’s mother struggled to bring up both her daughters in lokhandwala, where she switched between jobs….perhaps this explains where Kareena gets her streak of independence and strength from….
Kareena is an alumni of the Welham girls school, Dehradun and believes that it was at welham’s that she lived the finest years of her life!…. she then went on to study commerce at the Mithibai college in Mumbai…later she registered at the Harvard University (USA) for a 3 month course in the area of microcomputers. Kareena also had a vivid interest in the area of Law, which she pursued…onlt to realize that it was only acting that had always been her dream….it was then that she started training at as an actor, and was mentored by Mr. Kishore Namit Kapoor, who is a member of the FTII (Film and Television Institute of India).
Kareena Kapoor has done a stream of roles….some good…some not so good…. But over the years this young lady has grown….she has grown as an actor….as a performer….as an entertainer…. Be it her role as “poo” in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham….be it her character as “chameli” in chameli….be it as “dolly mishra” in omkara….be it as “geet dhillon” in jab we met…. “avantika ahuja” in kurbaan….kareena Kapoor has GROWN!
Kareena Kapoor was born on the 21st of September in the year 1980), to Babita and Randhir Kapoor. Throughout kareena’s career, she has been honored with 6 Filmfare Awards, in the midst of nine nominations, Kareena has been applauded for her performance in an array of film genus’; they include her efforts in contemporary and romantic drama… to comedy… to period films… major Bollywood creations, in addition to less publicized autonomous movies.
Randhir Kapoor is kareena’s daddy and Babita is bebo’s mom, Karisma kapoor (one of the most graceful actor) her elder sister…. It’s evident that Kareena has faced the limelight ever since she was very young, but it wasn’t until the year 2000 that Kareena took to acting and faced the camera for the 1st time ever, in the lead role in the movie Refugee. Her 1st ever big commercial success came with her melodramatic role in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
If you ask yourself what’s the one role where you actually “noticed” Kareena as an “actor”….. I’m sure the answer will be “chameli”….where Kareena was seen in the role of a sex worker (2004) and this is the role which ended up being the “turning point” for Kareena as an actor….
Kareena’s work in the movie jab we met, an imtiaz ali direction, won Kareena the best actress at filmfare awards. She moved on to do the lead character in Kurbaan , a thriller in the year 2009, where she was critically acclaimed…. Next came 3 Idiots in the year 2009, and this became the peak-grossing Bollywood motion picture of time immemorial. Having done so, Kapoor has established herself as a leading actress of the Hindi film industry.
Success did not end here for bebo….she went on to launch a clothing line and became the brand representative for a retail chain named Globus.
