Kareena Kapoor In Hot Biography
attended Jamnabai Narsee School in Mumbai before progressing to Welham Girls Boarding School in Dehradun. She later recalled, “I learnt so much from being at Welham”, and described her experience there as “one of the finest parts of my life”. According to Kareena Kapoor, she was a good student and received first-class honours in all subjects except mathematics. Upon graduating from the boarding school, she studied commerce for two years at Mithibai College in Vile Parle, Mumbai, but later confessed that she only studied there because she was close to her family. Kapoor then registered for a three-month summer course in microcomputers at Harvard University in the United States. She later developed an interest in law and enrolled at the Government Law College in Churchgate; during this period she became immersed in law books and developed a long-lasting passion for reading.
However, after completing one year at Churchgate, Kareena Kapoor realized that she was not inclined towards academics and returned to her initial plan to become an actress. She began training at an acting institute in Andheri, mentored by Kishore Namit Kapoor, a member of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII).Anjali (Kareena Kapoor) is the younger daughter of her Canadian mother (Nafisa Ali) and Indian father (Kabir Bedi), living in the city of Montreal, Quebec. She shares a healthy relationship with her parents but has a secret to hide. She reveals this secret only to her elder sister Aarti (Sushmita Sen).
The secret is her love for a budding musician Raja (Akshay Kumar). Raja is not a rich man, but that does not deter Anjali from loving him. Aarti assures Anjali and Raja that she will convince her parents of their true love.
But unfortunately fate has different plans for them. Aarti passes away on the birth of her twin babies. Circumstances force Anjali to marry Aarti's husband, Aditya Sahai (Anil Kapoor). With the much older and mature Aditya, Anjali migrates to New Delhi.
Aditya is a business tycoon who hardly finds any time for his sister-in-law turned wife or his two lovable daughters. Anjali fulfills every role asked for her by society but cannot bridge the gap between herself and Aditya. She finds herself in a marriage that has no compatibility but only compromise. Her only source of solace are her two endearing girls.
Amidst all this, one day Raja, who is now a famous fusion singer, walks back into her life. Suddenly Anjali is torn. She begins hanging out with Raja. When Aditya returns, he senses a change in her and decides to look into it. He seeks the help of his friends, a flamboyant couple — Dil and Pallavi Arora (Manoj Bajpai and Shamita Shetty). After revealing to Anjali that he did know about Raja and acknowledging that Anjali is not at fault, Aditya gives her the freedom to choose between Raja and himself. She chooses Aditya over Raja, not only because of her duty as a mother, but also because she realises that she loves Aditya. Raja leaves and Anjali embarks on a tour with her husband.

Kareena Kapoor gave the audience a taste of her fine histrionics in ‘Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai’ a romantic movie which had Tusshar Kapoor making his debut, directed by Satish Kaushik. Critics had no problems stating that Kareena had the makings of a star as she had come up with seasoned performances in both Refugee and Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai.
Subash Ghai directed Yaadein in 2001 with Kareena and Hrithik Roshan in the main lead and the movie flopped badly. Kapoor then appeared in the Abbas-Mustan thriller Ajnabee (2001), a movie lifted from the 1992 American thriller film Consenting Adults. The movie did average business.
Ashoka the Great, starring Shah Rukh khan happened in 2001 and Kareena Kapoor’s sex appeal was there for all to see as Kaurwaki; this even won her first Filmfare Best Actress nomination. Kareena raised her hot quotient a good notches high as she displayed oomph with amazing abandon in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham in the character of ‘Poo’ (Poonam). The movie directed by Karan Johar was the biggest hit of 2001.
Kareena Kapoor fell in the jinx category as six movies flopped back to back Mujhse Dosti Karoge!, Jeena Sirf Merre Liye, Talaash: The Hunt Begins..., Khushi, Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon, and the four-hour war epic LOC Kargil in the periods 2002 and 2003. Her performance came under criticism because critics found her hammy and repetitive.
Kareena decided to focus on her performance and bounced back in 2004 with the critically acclaimed ‘Chameli’ where she played the role of a prostitute. To prepare for the role, she even went to Mumbai’s shady red-light areas to come u with authentic characterization of mannerisms and dress. Despite criticism from some quarters, Kapoor's portrayal of Chameli earned her the Filmfare Special Performance Award. This was indeed a movie which was the turning point of her career. She proved herself with Dev and Yuva, two movies in which her performance shone through the respective films.
Between the periods 2004 and 2005, her success were balanced by her failures. While Fida made many people take her seriously as an actress, the movie flopped. However, Airtraaz and Hulchul did well for her but Kyon Ki and Bewafa flopped.
2006 was yet another turning point of Kareena’s career. Omkara was an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello and Kareena was Desdemona to Ajay Devgn's Othello. Kareena was fabulous in the film, her vulnerability shone through the film and she did it with effortless zeal. She also starred in the thriller 36 China Town followed by the comedy Chup Chup Ke; both films performed reasonably well.
In 2007, Kareena Kapoor showed the world that she is an accomplished actress as she came up with what is known as one of the best performances by a female lead in many years. As the lively female protagonist Geet Dhillon, she walked away with Filmfare Best Actress Award for the superhit romantic comedy Jab We Met, directed by Imtiaz Ali.
By 2007, people noticed a change in her figure too. The voluptuous Kareena Kapoor had slimmed down to a pencil thin figure which was to showcase her in the 2008 movie Tashan. The high point of Tashan was Kareena Kapoor in a bikini. The multi-starrer with beau Saif Ali Khan, Akshay Kumar in the main-lead bombed badly at the box office.
It was going to rain money on Kareena Kapoor’s roof soon and it did with Golmaal Returns (2008)), Rohit Shetty’s Sequel to his hit film. Critics panned the movie but it did not stop the movie from becoming a huge blockbuster. Kambakkht Ishq in 2009 showcased Kareena Kapoor’s sex appeal but the movie had not much to offer even though it had a special appearance from Sylvester Stallone. Kareena even won the ‘Kela award’ (Bollywood Razzies) for the worst performance of the year.
