"In your forties, you should be the passenger; lie back and let the bloody aircraft fly! I should actually be in a space rocket.

The year was 2000, when filmmaker JP Dutta introduced a fresh face in the Hindi Film Industry in the form of Kareena Kapoor Khan. The movie didn't exactly set the cash registers ringing at the box office. A few films down, Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham arrived and life was never the same for the dazzling star. Over the years, Bebo's career has had its share of hits and misses, but she is still 'PHAT' (pretty hot and tempting) on screen!

Kareena Kapoor Calling Out Yellow Press In Heroine
As Mahi Arora, a leading actress trying to get a grip over her spiraling career, Kareena delivered a firecracker of a performance in Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine.
Watch out for her in the scene where she takes a dig at the sensationalism of news by reporters and says, "Tum media walo ko film scripts likni chahiye. Heroine ne gaadi kharidi to businessman ne gift kardi diamond kharida to engagement ho gayi, aagar LA gayi toh plastic surgery karvali, or God forbid Dubai gayi, to uska rate card ban jata hain."
