Bollywood's Hottie Kareena Kapoor turns 33 today, September 21, 2013. This year it is a big thing for Bebo as it's her first birthday post marriage with Saif Ali Khan. This time we hear that Saif has some big plans for the birthday girl.
Kareena, who is fondly called as Bebo in her family and the B-Town is known for her versatile roles in various genres of Bollywood. This actress who was born to a star studded family has evolved in her career over the years. Her acting career kick started in the year 2000 with the movie titled Refugee. She was then a 20-year-old and this first movie even fetched her Filmfare award for the Best Bebut Actress.
Kareena went on to do many more films after this. Some of her best movies which have been acclaimed are Asoka, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Chameli and many more. It has been thirteen years since she has been in the industry and it does feel like we have seen her grow as a person. We love her effortless acting and sometimes even her over dramatic scenes. She has entertained us over the years and a movie like Jab We Met can never be forgotten and thanks to Kareena for that. She gave us all a wonderful experience with that 2007 movie in which she was cast opposite her former boyfriend Shahid Kapoor.
We love her for her style statements and the good work she has done in the society as well. We look forward to seeing Kareena in her upcoming movies Gori Tere Pyaar Mein and Happy Ending. We wish the actress a very happy birthday. On this special occasion, we have put down a slide show which has interesting and unknown facts about Kareena Kapoor.
Kareena, who is born to a star family, calls herself very naughty and a spoilt child. Her exposure to films from her childhood kindled her interest in acting.
Reason Behind Her Name
Kareena's name was derived from the book Anna Karenina, which her mother read while she was pregnant with her.
In the movie Heroine, Kareena Kapoor wore 138 different designer dresses. Her wardrobe for this film was her most expensive wardrobe till date.
Kareena Missed Kaho Na Pyaar Hai
Bebo was actually supposed to make her debut with Hrithik Roshan in the 2000 Blockbuster film Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. However, she chose a different path and instead Ameesha Patel was cast with Hrithik.
In association with the Globus retail chain, Kareena became the first Indian actress to launch her own line of clothing.
In the year 2008, Kapoor began the size-zero trend in Bollywood. Even at her thinnest (48 kilograms), she was not waif-like but showcased her new-found body in skimpy outfits in Tashan.
The actress has performed at various concerts and other events to raise funds for good purposes and people in need.
While Kareena was still in her school days, her older sister Karisma was already acting in films. Kareena recently revealed that she used to bunk school just to visit the sets of sister's films. She was fascinated with the lights, camera and the entire process.
The Young Bride
This is a childhood rare image of Kareena Kapoor where she is dressed as a Christian bride.
Relation With The Media
Kareena maintains a very good relationship with the media. She often discusses about her personal life too as she is a public image.
Kareena, who is born to Randhir Kapoor and Babita, was brought up by her mother as her parents separated. So Kareena is a very independent woman.
Her father Randhir did not want the women in the family to act in films, but Kareena's mother thought differently. Both Kareena and Karisma went on to pursue their career in the field of acting.
Talented actress Kareena refrains from rehearsing her role before the actual shooting. She likes to be spontaneous on the sets and we see that she is good at it.
