Even as she turns 36 today and gracefully inches towards motherhood, Kareena Kapoor remains one of the most sought after actresses in Bollywood. There is so much to love about Bebo that you can not simply ignore her, on or off screen.
I have grown up being mesmerised by Kareena, her mannerisms, her style, her attitude, basically I have tried to ape everything the begum does and if I am able to be even one-tenth of the divinity the woman is, I take that as success. Yes, on a scale of 0 to Fan girl, I am obsessed!
And after being in the film industry for 16 years, the striking woman never bores me on screen and I haven’t moved her from my No. 1 favourite spot either. Take this as a personal ode from me to you, Kareena. I have taken you very seriously all my life and my friends will vouch for that.
P.S- I know there are millions like me.
It’s what sets you apart and Karan Johar will agree. That’s how you nailed Poo’s character, after all. #NeverChange, Kareena!
Your style is unmatched. Hair and makeup always on fleek. And the best part? It looks so effortless, taking you a notch above us mere mortals.
Bebo, you are as Geet as u are Chameli. And irrespective of Heroine‘s box office success, your role in the film got major accolades. Of course, you’re part of the 100 crores bracket with films like Singham and Bajrangi Bhaijaan and you also go ahead and do something like Ki & Ka every once in a while. Oh, and did I mention that I LOVE your item numbers?
You walk-talk-breathe confidence and are never afraid to voice your opinion. Your interviews are a delight to watch!
We love that you have so much female energy around you and know the importance of having girlfriends. Look at you always chilling with your gal pals when the industry is infamous for its ego issues.
An actress’s career does not end once she gets married and they do not have a shelf life and you embody that. You got married at the peak of your career and that never deterred you from pursuing your goals. You have and will always be an integral part of the industry, irrespective of your relationship status.
The Kapoors are often referred to as the first family of Bollywood and both you and your sister Karisma Kapoor have taken the legacy forward with much elan. You women represented the next-gen Kapoors.
We know! ;)
Arjun Kapoor has gone on record to say that you never let your stardom affect you and that seemingly you are not even aware of the aura that surrounds you. Alia Bhatt has also been pretty vocal about her love for you and how you are her idol. Bollywood loves you, so do we!
That’s what makes or breaks an actor, isn’t it? Playing a village girl in Refugee or a prostitute in Chameli at a fairly early stage of your career is not everyone’s cup of tea. But you did it Kareena, and you did it well.
Thank you for giving us Poo! Not only is the character iconic and unforgettable, there is no one else but you who could have played this role to perfection. It’s the entire cast of Gossip Girls rolled into one. #Win
Happy birthday, Bebo! Tu original piece hai!
