Kareena Kapoor Biography

Kareena Kapoor was born to Sindhi-speaking Babita (nee Shivdasani) and Punjabi-speaking Randhir Kapoor on September 21, 1977 in Bombay, India. She has an elder sister, Karisma Kapoor. Kareena is born in a family that have been actors for generations, including her paternal great-grandfather, Prithviraj Kapoor; her grandfather, Raj Kapoor; her paternal uncles, Shammi, Shashi, Rishi, and Rajiv; as well as aunt, Neetu Singh, & Jennifer Kendall, the wives of Rishi and Shashi respectively. On her maternal side, her grandfather, Hari Shivdasani, and aunt, Sadhana, have been actors in their own rights.

As a child, Kareena Kapoor studied in Jamnabai Narsee School in Juhu, Bombay, and thereafter was enrolled in Dehra Dun's prestigious Welham Girls' Boarding School. Her dad, Randhir is very protective towards his daughters and wanted both of them to keep away from acting, get married, and settle down, as per the Kapoor family tradition. This led to irreconcilable differences between her parents, ultimately leading to a divorce, with both sisters leaving their dad to live with their mom.

Kareena Kapoor film debut was in the year 2000 with 'Refugee' along with the debut of Amitabh Bachchan's son, AbhishekBachchan. She went on to appear in many more Hindi movies, and has thus far won four awards for her performances in 'Refugee', 'Chameli', 'Dev', and 'Omkara'. Kareena is today one of the most sought-after actresses in Bollywood.

Kareena Kapoor won her first Filmfare Best Actress Award in the year 2008 for the film 'Jab We Met'. She dated actor Shahid Kapur for three years but had a break up. Currently actress is seeing actor Saif Ali Khan.
