GLAMOROUS, forthright and real. Yes, that’s how actor Kareena Kapoor Khan continues to be referred to as an actor by her fans. The star, who can turn into just about anything you expect her to be on the big screen, is still an inspiration to many.
Back in 2000, Kareena entered the world of showbiz with JP Dutta’s Refugee on June 30. The star, who has spent 23 years in the industry, recalled the beginning of her incredible journey, by sharing posting a photo while doing what she enjoys the most – facing the camera.
“23 years of being born in front of the camera today…🌈❤ And Hell ya another 23 to go,” the 42-year-old actress posted on Instagram on June 30 alongside a photo of her from the shooting of a new project.
Within minutes, colleagues, friends and fans flooded the comments sections with congratulatory messages. Anil Kapoor, Vijay Varma Karisma Kapoor and Neha Dhupia were among the several stars who congratulated the star. “Many congratulations Bebo ji. You’re the best ❤️,” Lust Stories 2 star Vijay Varma commented. Neha Dhupia, who was featured along with Kareena in Chup Chup Ke, wrote, “More ❤️”.
Released in 2000, Refugee revolves around a young Indian Muslim man, who helps illegal refugees from India and Pakistan cross the border.
Three years back, Kareena had shared a photo of her first shot for the film Refugee to celebrate 20 years of the film. She posted a photo from the film with a message that read, “My first shot was at 4 am… I woke up this morning at 4, looked in the mirror, and said to myself that this was the best decision I could have ever taken. 20 years of hard work, dedication, and self-confidence… I am extremely grateful to all my fans for all your love, support, and strength… Thank you #JPDutta for my life in the movies… @bachchan for being the sweetest co-star… and every single person involved in this film. Want to go back in time… #20YearsAndNotGivingUp (sic).”
Year ago, in an interview, filmmaker JP Dutta had explained how both Kareena and Abhishek were never nervous even though they were filming their first film. “They were not at all nervous. They were full of energy and enthusiasm. I always tried to make them comfortable on the sets. It’s very important for any director to make his or her cast and crew comfortable. There’s no point of having a tensed atmosphere,” he had said.
Kareena had recently finished shooting ‘The Crew’ in Goa. The film features Kriti Sanon, Tabu and Diljit Dosanjh. She’ ‘d also be seen with Vijay Varma and Jaideep Ahlawat in Sujoy Ghosh’s thriller based on the book ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’.
