Biography

One of the most celebrated Indian actresses of the new millennium, Kareena Kapoor earned widespread critical praise and numerous awards for playing characters that surpassed the ornamental limitations placed on most Bollywood roles for female talent in major hits like "Refugee" (2000), "Chameli" (2004), "Dev" (2004) and "3 Idiots" (2009). Equally at home in light comedy, sprawling musicals, action-oriented thrillers and intimate dramas, Kapoor is best utilized as independent-minded, self-reliant women, which is also an accurate reflection of her own professional and personal life. Kapoor's work netted numerous Filmfare Awards and nominations, while her off-camera romances with leading men like Shahid Kapoor (no relation) and future husband Saif Ali Khan made her the focus of media attention, all of which positioned her as one of the biggest stars in what was arguably the most productive film industry in the world. Kapoor's talent and profile continued to grow exponentially each year, which only furthered her fame in the global film market.
