Happy Birthday Kareena Kapoor!

Kareena Kapoor who turns 33 today is one of the leading ladies in the industry to have carved a niche for herself.

Kareena is born to actor parents, Babita and Randhir Kapoor. Karisma Kapoor is her elder sister. Kareena was born in Mumbai. Kareena has acted in a number of movies. Her movies have covered different genres. She has played the role of a journalist, a prostitute, a housewife, a disabled girl and the role of an actress among many other roles.

Kareena is married to actor Saift Ali Khan. She feels her husband is quite liberal. Kareena says, “Saif is a very responsible man and he knows his responsibility. I have never given him a chance to be possessive. He is quite liberal in his thinking. Possessive is a very wrong word in a way. I could be more possessive than Saif.”

Kareena is an icon of style. She has experimented with different looks. About doing different roles, she says, “It's the duty of an actress to experiment as much as they can from the kind of roles they have offered. I was always interested in acting and doing different kind of films. I think I've already proved that now. I enjoy acting in films and I really want to continue.”

Recently Kareena’s ‘Satyagraha’ was released. The film was a success. Kareena, who played the role of a journalist says, “I am very happy that people are liking this film. It's a socio-political thriller which is different from the mindless masala kind of films. I am really happy that people are wanting to see a kind of film which has a message in the end.”

When asked about the secret of her health and glowing skin, Kareena says, “I eat only simple Indian home food – sabzi, roti, dal, chawal, ghee.” She also said that dieting is a no-no for her. Tells the actress, “I don't like the idea of starving. I would eat and burn it out in gym. The amount of intake is what matters.”

Kareena will be shortly appearing in a movie by Tigmanshu Dhulia which is going to be a period movie based on the life of Begum Samru. Tigmanshu said, “The film is set in the 1840s and will be based on a Hindi novel. The story is a different take on ‘Umrao Jaan’. The lead actress will be a begum, not anautch girl. The begum woos four men before falling in love with one of them and that’s where the trouble begins.”
