Kareena Kapoor Khan Facts:
The name Kareena Kapoor comes from the titular character of the book Anna Karenina. It was her mother who decided to name her after the classic literary character.
She walked out of Rakesh Roshan’s ‘Kaho Naa Pyaar Hain’ as she felt her role wasn’t substantial enough to make any impact. She had already shot for some portions of the film when she made the decision.
She was the second Bollywood actress after Aishwarya Rai to get waxed at the London branch of Madame Tussauds.
She maintained a rigorous diet regimen for her wayfarer role in ‘Tashan’ and thus started the size-zero trend in Bollywood.
As per latest estimates she gets paid around 9-10 crore per film.
Kareena Kapoor Quotes:
“My co-stars call me selfish. They say you are only interested in yourself and what you are only interested is yourself and what you are doing in front of the camera. I reply I can’t help it; it’s what got me where I am”.
“Films don’t decide my whole life. They are just a part of who I am. What I do in my personal life should be of no concern to the filmmakers or the fans”.
“I don’t take success and failure seriously. The only thing I do seriously is march forward. If I fall, I get up and march again”.
“Humor is most powerful thing that uses laughter as it base to chase your blues away”.
“Frankly, we actresses are so much in a hurry. We feel we have very few years to shine in our career, so we neglect our personal life. But for me, both aspects are equally important. I don’t want to grow old and have regrets”.
“I don’t want the national award… I seriously do not need any such thing. I would only want the audience to go and watch the film once and that will be more than enough for me. Once everybody should see the movie and say it is a good watch”.
