If you asked us to describe Kareena Kapoor Khan in one word, we’ll be tongue tied. She is phenomenal, exceptionally beautiful and has a holding power like no other. And of course, she is Taimur Ali Khan‘s mother!
If one was to draw Bebo’s career graph, there’s no denying that she has had her share of low points. But she always bounced back stronger (in size zero also), letting nothing deter her rise! An actress’ career has a shelf life? They don’t get good films after marriage? Motherhood is the end of an acting career? Meh, not for Bebo, stereotypes have never been her thing.
Although we love her in all the films she has ever done (Yes, including Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon & Jeena Sirf Mere Liye), there were times when she was too hard to be forgotten. Therefore, on her 37th birthday today, we thought why not dig up some classic Bebo moments from her filmography!
Can’t miss the kohl-eyed warrior princess she played in Asoka. The vision of her sword fighting with Shah Rukh Khan immediately starts playing in front of our eyes. You have already started humming Raat Ka Nasha Abhi – admit it!
Here’s some visual aid:
Chameli is inarguably one of the best roles in Kareena’s career. She gave an outstanding performance barely 3 years after making her debut.
That golden dress! And those moves! #Can’tForgetWon’tForget
This wasn’t really one of her shining star moments, but it would be unfair not to mention the blonde hair Kareena sported in 2004. We all make mistakes in our young & wild days, glad this phase is over!
Yet again, not her best role. But Bebo slayed in Kambakkht Ishq – that LBD, the swimsuits, everything screamed hot!
Chammak Challo and red saree – this was all the rage back in 2011. It still is, if you ask us, except that the imitations are done to death.
Size zero? Been there, done that! Tashan wasn’t a gold star either, but hey, guess who was making headlines for the zero figure?! #Win
She was born to do this role. Period.
Mention Kareena in 3 Idiots and our mind immediately wanders off to her dressed in bridal finery and a helmet, riding a scooter in Ladakh.
And this orange sari with perfectly toned abs! *Sigh*
Bebo is her own competition in the sari game. Either way, her sensuous performance in the romantic song was flawless.
You are going to need visual aid again:
Kareena’s character in the movie achieved cult status. Need we say more about how gripping & relatable she was as Geet?!
She was equally hard to miss in a blazer, as she was in a sari.
Mani Ratnam knows his heroines well – and the outcome is always brilliant! Kareena’s enigmatic portrayal of the young and witty Mira stills remains a favourite.
You did not really think we would have made it to the end of the list without mentioning K3G even once?!
Some things are best saved for the end, Poo being one of them.
You know why? Because she is da shiz! May we quote you forever, Poo!
Happy birthday, Kareena Kapoor! You are perfect.
