Giving up good films
Even though she may not admit it, we think Kareena Kapoor’s biggest mistake in her career so far has been rejecting good scripts. The actress has rejected films that went on to become blockbusters like ‘Black’, ‘Ram-Leela’, ‘Queen’, ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ and ‘Fashion’. By rejecting these fantastic scripts, Kareena gave a boost to other actresses’ careers, so much so that Priyanka Chopra who went ahead and got a National Award for her performance in ‘Fashion’. Kapoor rejected Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela- Ram Leela’ that eventually got Deepika Padukone her first Filmfare Award for Best Actress, TOI reports.
Refusing to work with top-notch directors
Out of all the films Kapoor has rejected doing, there is one particular filmmaker whose name comes up the most – Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Kapoor has had a yoyo relationship with the ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ director for years now. She initially came on board as Leela in Bhansali’s ‘Ram-Leela’ but later on Padukone replaced her. So when Bhansali was looking for his Mastani in his dream project ‘Bajirao Mastani’ Kapoor’s name sprouted up as well. But when Kapoor was instead offered to play the second lead in the film as Bajirao’s first wife, she apparently rejected the same. Instead, Kapoor’s archrival Chopra is believed to have been approached for the role. And if gossip mills are to be believed then PeeCee has bagged the project too. Once again, Kapoor lost the chance to work with Bhansali. In an interview on ‘Koffee With Karan’, Bhansali had also said that Kapoor had once commented that he doesn’t know how to make films. We wonder if Bhansali rejected Kapoor for his films because of her scathing comments?
Talking ill of other actresses
Apart from acting, if there is one thing that Bebo does well is bitching about other actresses. As viewers, we especially love Kapoor’s interviews where she always has interesting comments reserved for contemporary actresses. On the show ‘Koffee With Karan’, Kapoor always makes it a point to spice up her interview with a few bitchy comments about others. Although, viewers enjoy her bindaas avatar, Kapoor goes along making a lot of enemies for the same reason. In one of her rapid-fire rounds on the show, Kapoor questioned Chopra’s American accent as well.
Not working with ex-boyfriends
Kareena’s popularity may take a dip after her decision of not working with her ex-flames. Unlike other actresses these days, who don’t mind working with their former boyfriends, Kareena doesn’t want anything to do with her former boyfriends. Like Padukone who worked with Ranbir Kapoor after their break-up in ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and Chopra who is open to doing films with ex-lover Shahid Kapoor, Kareena doesn’t share the same views. Kareena may lose some meaty projects due to this policy as she has expressed her reservations over working with Shahid Kapoor.
Kareena brought the ‘size zero’ phenomenon in India. Kapoor made it to various magazine covers for her new look and even received flak for her too thin frame. After she rocked the size zero craze, an otherwise plump Kareena regained her earlier form. But over the years, Kareena’s fluctuating weight seems to have caught her critics’ attention. Soon Kareena’s apparent fat arms and fuller frame became the topic of discussion. Amongst other things, Kareena’s weight issues have always being overly discussed, keeping her in the news receiving brickbats over bouquets on most occasions.
Breaking up with Shahid Kapoor
Shahid and Kareena were Bollywood’s most loved couple. Their compatibility was up to the mark as well. No, we aren’t saying that, we have proof of the same after watching Karan Johar’s special ‘Compatibility Quiz’. It is a known fact that Shahid and Kareena were head over heels in love and everyone hoped for a fairy-tale ending to their love story. But things didn’t stay the same, news of Kareena breaking up with Shahid emerged and the next thing we knew it was Kareena had started dating Saif Ali Khan! Even though Kareena went ahead and got married to the Nawab of Pataudi, she was touted as the villain in the media for the longest time for breaking Shahid’s heart. A lot of Shahid and Kareena fans too sided with Shahid during the turmoil. While her personal life is none of our business, Kareena’s break-up with Shahid received a lot of media attention and in a way, harmed Kareena’s image for a while.
Fight with John Abraham
Apart from her catfights with other actresses, Kareena also came to the fore for her dislike towards John Abraham. Kareena and John apparently started ‘fighting’ after Kareena and John’s then girlfriend Bipasha Basu had a fight while shooting for ‘Ajnabee’.
