Kareena Kapoor Khan needs no introduction. The Begum achieved success in Bollywood on her own merit and is one of the extremely talented actresses we have ever had. Despite of coming from the Kapoor khaandaan– a central dynasty of the Bollywood film industry, Kareena’s filmy journey hasn’t been an easy one. She had to face failure and criticism in order to taste success just like every other newcomer in the industry. ALSO READ: You won’t believe how much Deepika Padukone has changed in the last decade!

She started her career with Refugee and went on to do movies like Khushi, Yaadein, Fida, Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai and Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon which didn’t really leave a mark on the audience. Let’s admit it: She overdid it with all those roles and she would only be red-faced if she watched herself in all those movies today!

While everyone thought that her filmy career wouldn’t last too long, in 2004, she proved everyone wrong with Aitraz.

From Anamika Khanna to Rohit Bal and Manish Malhotra, Bebo has set the ramp on fire every time she walked for all A-listed designers.

She even made some grave mistakes like refusing KJo’s Kal Ho Na Ho, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Black and Vikas Bahl’s Queen.

Although movies like Ra. One, Bodyguard and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein weren’t blockbuster hits at the Box Office, Kareena’s performance was appreciated by many.

She is one of those few actresses who has worked with all the three ruling Khans of Bollywood- Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir Khan. If that wasn’t enough, she has also been fortunate enough to have worked with A-listed directors like Rajkummar Hirani, JP Dutta and R Balki.
