Kareena Kapoor believes Aamir has proved lucky for her and sister Karisma Kapoor's careers. Aamir Khan has proved to be a lucky charm for the careers of Karisma (Raja Hindustani) and Kareena (3 Idiots). And Bebo notes as much, "Aamir has turned out to be lucky for both sisters. 2009 couldn't have ended on a better note!"
The actress who is still receiving congratulatory calls for her performance in 3I says, "My most cherished compliments are the ones I got from Saif, mom, dad, Lolo and my brother-in-law (Sanjay Kapur) who never watches Hindi films. He watched 3 Idiots twice while Lolo went to watch it in her pregnant state."
Post the 3 Idiots release, leading lady Kareena Kapoor was out of the country with boyfriend Saif Ali Khan. After Christmas (which they celebrated in Delhi), the actress and Saif went off to London, where she reunited with school friends.
Says a source close to Kareena, "Bebo chose to bring in her New Year with Saif and close childhood friends whom she has known for over 25 years. While in London, she also attended the wedding of a friend of hers from play-school! Her friend got married into the royal family of UK."
Bebo confirms, "I wanted to celebrate 3 Idiots being the biggest hit of the year with my friends." She was in UK for over 10 days and missed her grandmom Krishna's 80th b'day celebrations in Dubai.
Bebo is now looking forward to starting Ra1 with Shah Rukh and Agent Vinod with Saif. She is also performing the Apsara Awards on January 8 and the Screen awards after that.
