Kareena Kapoor Khan made her debut with Refugee on this day, 17 years ago! Yup, she has been around for that long! Bebo is close to competing 2 decades in the industry – and I still love her as much (or more!) as I did back then when she had just joined.
From Refugee, Yaadein and Asoka to *gasp* Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, and Chameli and Yuva – Kareena has done some spectacular films that kept us hooked onto her. There were a few misses, of course, but I have no qualms in admitting I have seen Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon & Mujhse Dosti Karoge multiple times – only for Bebo!
Such is lou-ve!
Today, on Bebo completing 17 years in the industry, it’s only apt that I tell you the innumerous times she was just f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s! Here are 17 of them:
Sorry, but this had to be numero uno on the list! Enough has been said and written about how she rocked-slayed-owned her pregnancy, so let’s just say we love her for normalising a baby bump! #BeboKaBabyBump
Kareena has been a part of all seasons of Koffee With Karan, with different partners. She has been on the show with her ex, Shahid Kapoor; her contemporary, Rani Mukherjee; brother Ranbir Kapoor; friend and future co-star, Sonam Kapoor, and of course with hubby Saif Ali Khan. Proof enough that the season is incomplete if Bebo has not been a guest! She is a favourite everywhere.
Oh wait, she has been on the talk show with baby Taimur in her womb. That counts, right?!
“Why should I worry about the biological clock ticking? Saif is 10 years older. He should be worried.”
“I do my own thing. And I believe what I do is the right thing.”
“My son is the most gorgeous man this side of the equator. I take it as a compliment because yes, his lips are amazing.”
And many more such gems!
… And good looks!
Size zero: Check!
Post baby – hot body: Work in progress!
Saif and Kareena look great together. It’s just so delightful to see them as a couple! Saifeena #FTW
Exes don’t work together, you said?! Well, let’s just say Udta Punjab was a team effort and Jab We Met is one of the best Bollywood films.
Of course we love these two gorgeous sisters – Bebo and Lolo! Sisters always have each others back, don’t they?!
Kareena and her girls – Karisma, Malaika Arora and Amrita Arora are always chilling together – lunch dates, brunches or late night parties. Girls just wanna have some fun, right?! She is also pretty close to her manager, Poonam Damania. Girl love <3
Her best role yet is obviously subject to argument. Since I am not here to debate, let’s all agree to the fact that there cannot be another Poo. Period.
A professional career spanning more than a decade – it’s suffice to say that Kareena has been around for long and she has done good work while she was at it. She has been there, done that, and the various awards she has won are a bonus!
She could be showing sass…
or she could just be hungry!
You’ll never know!
Undoubtedly, the best part about Bebo till now is her gorgeous baby boy, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. We cannot wait to see him grown up and follow the footsteps of his talented parents!
P.S – Since it’s my birthday today (duh, obviously she debuted on my special day), I am leaving you with a Bebo song you may have forgotten.
17 years of Kareena! 17 years of awesome!
