Kareena Kapoor Hot In Tashan Biography
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.

She writes out her childhood story to find Karan and comes across Seema (Mallika Sherawat). Seema has come across Karan and believes him to be her boyfriend. Puja later realizes that Karan is her childhood love, as does Seema. Seema goes to tell Karan. As he's going to find Puja he gets a call from his dad that his sister's wedding has been canceled.
