Nick Name: Bebo
Height: 5' 5"
Date of Birth : September 21, 1977
Kareena 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.
She 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 she studied in Jamnabai Narsee School in Juhu, Bombay,
and thereafter was enrolled in Dehra Dun's prestigious Welham Girls'
Boarding School. Then she re-located to Harvard for approximately 3
months to take a course in Information Technology and
Microcomputers. Upon her return to India, she joined the Government
Law College in Churchgate, Bombay, but left it after one year, to
enroll in the Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting 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.
She is one of the most sought-after actresses in Bollywood,
considered bankable, with an enviable A-listing and as of June 2007
is to appear in 'Tashan', 'Lajjo', 'Kismat Talkies' amongst others.
