Kareena Kapoor Biography
Kareena Kapoor (Hindi: करीना कपूर, born 21 September 1980) nicknamed "Bebo" is a four-time Filmfare Award-winning prominent Indian actress who appears in Bollywood movies.
Making her acting debut with Refugee (2000), for which she won a Filmfare Best Debut Award, Kapoor had her first commercial success with her second release, Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai (2001). Her performance as a cosmetic beauty in Karan Johar's melodramatic Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) was praised and the film turned out to be her biggest commercial success so far. After that, Kareena starred in many films without much box office success. She was criticized for doing the same kind of roles in her films. As a result of this, she began taking on more serious and different roles. Her portrayal of a sex-worker in Sudhir Mishra's Chameli (2004) proved to be the turning point in her career. Her performances in critically acclaimed films like Dev (2004) and Omkara (2006) were praised and fetched her two Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress.
During her career years, she has appeared in many films, majority of them bringing her critical acclaim rather than commercial success. Despite this, she retains popularity and is regarded as one of the most versatile actresses of the industry.
