Kareena Kapoor was born on 21 September 1980 and is the daughter of Randhir Kapoor and Babita. The Indian actress is the granddaughter of Raj Kapoor and great-granddaughter of Prithviraj Kapoor; both are iconic Indian actors.
It’s evident from the family that she belongs to that films run through her veins. From an early age, everyone expected her to join the film fraternity as an actress, like her elder sister Karisma Kapoor. In order to excel in her chosen field, she went to the Film and Television Institute of India, which honed her natural skills.
Bebo, as she is lovingly referred to, started her career with the film ‘Refugee’ back in 2000. Her co-star in Refugee was Abhishek Bachchan, whose family is also part of the Indian movie Industry. Bachchan made his debut alongside Kareena Kapoor. Even though the film did not do well at the Box Office, Kapoor’s performance got great reviews, and she ended up with the Filmfare best debutant award.
Kareena Kapoor is happily married to actor Saif Ali Khan (and Nawab of Pataudi) and is the mother to Taimur Ali Khan. In India, there is a common misconception that women lose their stand in Bollywood after they get married. However, Saif’s wife still manages to draw Rs 5 to Rs 8 crores per film. Her beauty, charm, sophistication, and class make a deadly combination with her acting skills.
Bebo is a gifted actor and has acted in films with all the big names of the industry. She has shined in commercial blockbusters such as ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’ or critically acclaimed films like ‘Omkara.’ Last year she was one of the leads in the female-centered Veere Di Wedding. The film was a smash at the Box Office which took most people by surprise because there wasn’t a significant male role or a prominent actor.
However, her top-grossing movies are where the main lead has been a famous male actor. Those blockbusters have no doubt added to Kareena Kapoor’s net worth. Some of her biggest grossing films are the ones where she co-starred with the three big Khans of Bollywood.
The actress has married into the royal family of a small city in India called Pataudi. However, she has always given importance to her career and has never shied away from hard work. She worked tirelessly throughout her pregnancy and jumped back in to work a month after giving birth to her son. As of now, her approximated net worth is $11 million (Rs 75 crores).
Kapoor has been the face of Lakme for years, and recently released her first make-up collection for the brand. Taimur’s mother has walked countless runways as a showstopper and has modeled for designers from both sides of the border. Whatever the actress touches or puts her mark on is guaranteed to sell out. If that is not enough, she has endorsed many products and starred in TVC’s for various brands, which have all contributed towards her net worth. In December she added the role of as an RJ when she hosted her ISHQ FM.
