Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor, (Hindi: करीना कपूर; born September 21, 1980)[1] nicknamed Bebo, is an Indian film actress who appears in Bollywood films. Born into the Kapoor film family, she made her acting debut in Refugee (2000), for which she won a Filmfare Best Female Debut Award. The following year, Kapoor had her first commercial success with her second release, Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai[2] and later appeared in Karan Johar’s melodrama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001), which became India’s top-grossing film in the overseas market that year and her biggest commercial success.[3] After a period between 2002 and 2003 when a series of unsuccessful films and repetitive roles resulted in film critics giving her negative reviews, in danger of becoming typecast, Kapoor took on more demanding roles. Her portrayal of a sex-worker in Chameli (2004) proved to be the turning point in her career and won her the Filmfare Special Performance Award.[4] She later received two Critics Award for Best Actress at the Filmfare for her performances in the critically acclaimed films Dev (2004) and Omkara (2006). After taking on such a range of acting roles between 2004 and 2006, she was recognized for displaying versatility as an actress.[5] In 2007, Kapoor won her first Filmfare Best Actress Award for her performance in the commercially successful comedy-romance Jab We Met. Although the box office earnings of her films have varied considerably, Kapoor has established herself as one of the leading contemporary actresses in the Hindi film industry.[6][7]
