They say that a true actor is not one who takes up only a single genre or two but is one who is versatile enough to play any kind of role with equal ease and still appear convincing. This is the reason why our Bollywood actors find themselves experimenting with different genres. While some receive immense commercial success and appreciation by deviating, others are not so lucky and they do not receive much success when they try stepping in unexplored territories. Kareena Kapoor, also known as Kareena Kapoor Khan (after marriage to beau Saif Ali Khan in 2012) is a popular A-list Indian actress.

Some may say that Kareena Kapoor has achieved even more success than her sister Karishma Kapoor in terms of cinema but the answer to this question is open to interpretation. Whether Kareena is more successful than her sister or not, one thing is that is certain is that she has definitely had some smashing hits in her career during the last decade. Kareena hails from a family that has churned actors for generations and while her father Randhir Kapoor was very protective about his daughters and wanted them to stay away from acting, fate has its own plans.

As an actor, Kareena is extremely experimental – she does not mind exploring an unknown genre or taking up challenging roles. It is because of this streak in her that she took up the role of a streetwalker in the movie ‘Chameli’, while other ‘A-list’ actresses were not so keen on this non-glamorous and unconventional role. Her performance in this movie has not only gained her a lot of fans but also drew in a lot of awards. She soon became one of the most sought-after actresses in Bollywood and also became considerably bankable. She then entered the ‘one crore’ heroines’ club which consisted of A-listers that charged one crore INR or more for a single movie.

While Kareena had a dream debut opposite Abhishek Bachchan, the superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s son, in the movie Refugee in 2000, the movie failed to make an impact at the box office. Not willing to let a flop movie dampen her spirits and love for acting, she starred in six films during 2002 and 2003: Mujhse Dosti Karoge, Jeena Sirf Mere Liye, Talaash, Khushi, Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon and LOC Kargil. Unfortunately these movies were a setback in her career because they were unsuccessful commercially as well as critically.

Due to her string of flops, she was beginning to be typecast as an actor. She had her first hit in the year 2004 with Chameli. The next breakthrough success in her career happened in the year 2007 with the movie Jab We Met wherein she had co-starred with Shahid Kapoor with whom she broke up after their long relationship. She played the role of ‘Geet’, a vivacious and outgoing Sikh girl who was extremely zealous about life. Till date she is noted and appreciated greatly for her role in this movie. Then came Golmaal 3 which was entertainment personified in every way.

There is something about Kareena’s choice of movies that make them so memorable. Her movies are not only huge box office hits but they also leave a deep impact on the audience and at times even start a trend. The trend ‘size zero figure’ in Bollywood started with Kareena Kapoor when she slimmed down drastically for her role in the movie ‘Tashan’ in 2008.
