Career

In 2001, she starred opposite Tusshar Kapoor in Satish Kaushik’s movie Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai. The movie was super hit. The same year, she shared screen space with superstars like Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, and Kajol in the film Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. She then suffered a major setback when several of her films failed to perform well at the box office. Within a span of two years, six of her films – Mujhse Dosti Karoge!, Jeena Sirf Merre Liye, Talaash: The Hunt Begins, Khushi, Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon, and LOC Kargil have flopped.

By the mid-2000s, she had played the stereotypical role of a pretty, superficial girl in a number of films. Determined to avoid being typecast, she took up the challenging role of an s*x worker in the film Chameli (2004). This role helped her to reinvent her on-screen personally. In 2006, she acted in three films, 36 China Town, Chup Chup Ke, and Omkara. The following year, she played a charming girl named Geet in the romantic comedy film Jab We Met, which also starred Shahid Kapoor.

She became part of the ensemble cast of the 2009 movie 3 Idiots, a film loosely based on the novel Five Point Someone by Chetan Bhagat. She played a medical student named Pia opposite to famous actor Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan, and Sharman Joshi in major roles. The film proved to be a blockbuster. From the 2010s,  Kareena Kapoor began with hit films- We Are Family (2010), Bodyguard (2011), Heroine (2012), and Agent Vinod (2012). Of all these movies, she felt that her portrayal of Mahi Arora in ‘Heroine’ was the most challenging.

She got married in late 2012 and reduced her workload in order to devote more time to her family. Over the ensuing years, she did not take up any major projects and did only cameo roles in a handful of films. She once again became serious about her acting career in 2016 and played the role of Kia, a career-oriented young lady, in the film Ki & Ka. The same year, she played the role of Dr. Preet Sahni in the critically acclaimed film Udta Punjab.

In 2018, she played Kalindi Puri in Shashanka Ghosh’s buddy comedy film Veere Di Wedding. In 2019, she portrayed Deepu Batra in Raj Mehta’s comedy film Good Newwz. The following year, she played Naina in a comedy-drama titled Angrezi Medium. In addition to her film career, she has also launched her own clothing line in association with the retail chain ‘Globus.’ She has also co-authored three books: an autobiographical memoir and two nutrition guides.
