While training at the institute, Kapoor was cast as the female lead in Rakesh Roshan's Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai (2000) opposite his son, Hrithik Roshan. Several days into the filming, however, she abandoned the project; Kapoor later explained that she had benefited by not doing the film since more prominence was given to the director's son. On the experience of acting in her first film, Kapoor described it as "tough ... [but] also a great learning experience". A key point in Kapoor's career came when she was cast by Karan Johar as Pooja ("Poo", a good-natured, superficial girl) in the 2001 melodrama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham... alongside an ensemble cast. Filming the big-budget production was a new experience for Kapoor, and she recalls it fondly: "[I]t was great fun doing [the film and] we had a blast. [W]orking with the unit and the six mega star set was a dream come true." On 16 October 2012, Kapoor married actor Saif Ali Khan in a private ceremony in Bandra, Mumbai, and a reception was later held at The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel and the Lutyens Bungalow Zone in Mumbai and New Delhi respectively. Kapoor stated that despite adding Khan to her name she would continue practising Hinduism after her marriage. Together the couple has a son named Taimur. I look forward to seeing what she has in store for the future and continuing watching her old and new movies with fondness.
I like to look back at my life as a way to see how I have grown. This is a fairly new mental exercise, and so please, bear with me. I looked back to myself from earlier this year when everything was in so much flux. The lines of life were blurry and I was making through it an hour at a time. I slowed down my mind, and my body. I halted anxiety by circumventing the thought of it. Every day became a process. A thing to get through amidst uncertainty, being an adult, and essentially surviving myself. I dont regret it for one second. I learned and grew. I discovered I can be an absolutely selfish human when I needed to be; that I have uncharted strengths which will reveal themselves to me as I make it past a challenge.
To be clear, I fight this battle now too. In the stillness of my life, there is a resounding echo of uneasiness at not knowing what is after. How nice it would be to know what is going to happen tomorrow; but also, how boring?! Insecurities and confidence come and go in short tides, ebbing their way around me as I discover me. As I discover life. I like my struggles. They make me who I am. They color my perspective in vibrance. I am unashamed, unabased, and unfiltered. I am glorious ♥️♥️♥️
Kapoor attended Jamnabai Narsee School in Mumbai, followed by Welham Girls' School in Dehradun. She attended the institution primarily to satisfy her mother, though later admitted to liking the experience. According to Kapoor, she wasn't inclined towards academics though received good grades in all her classes except mathematics. After graduating from Welham she studied commerce for two years at Mithibai College in Vile Parle (Mumbai). Kapoor then registered for a three-month summer course in microcomputers at Harvard Summer School in the United States. She later developed an interest in law, and enrolled at the Government Law College, Mumbai; during this period, she developed a long-lasting passion for reading. However, after completing her first year, Kapoor decided to pursue her interest to become an actress. She began training at an acting institute in Mumbai mentored by Kishore Namit Kapoor, a member of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII).

Sizzled, baked, sauteed and what not! 😵
It was 44°C that day. Photo taken by the husband on our way to Jaipur, Rajasthan.
The weather these days is so damp and humid specially after the rains. The humidity encourages the production of extra oil on the face which causes breakouts. I’ve acne prone skin and it has become extremely sensitive. I apprehend having at least 2-3 pimples a week has become customary for me. 𝐒𝐭. 𝐈𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐀𝐜𝐧𝐞 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐥 𝐀𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐜𝐨𝐭 𝐒𝐜𝐫𝐮𝐛 is truly my knight in shining armour. No joke. I’ve been using it for two months now. Last week I forgot to use it and I noticed that I’ve again started to breakout around my mouth area and on my cheeks ( nothing new :p ) Before writing this review I used it one more time to see how it works on my new zits. Two of them were painful too. Believe it or not, within two hours the pain was lessened and when I woke up the next day they had dried up. (I did apply betnovate as well ) This product does deep cleaning of your pores and exfoliates it too as it has whopping particles in it which means you have to be extra gentle while scrubbing. It has worked brilliantly on my skin. I highly recommend it to everyone who is looking for a product to cure acne. One more thing, whenever you’re looking for a scrub/cleanser/face wash to treat acne, do check if it has 𝐬𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐲𝐥𝐢𝐜 𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐝 in it. It’s a chief ingredient for the alleviation of acne.

Born on September 21st, 1980, in Bombay (now Mumbai), India, Kareena Kapoor has become a cultural icon for Bollywood lovers through her various works in Indian cinema. Kapoor (often informally referred to as 'Bebo') is the younger daughter of Randhir Kapoor and Babita (née Shivdasani); her elder sister Karisma is also an actress. She comes from a family of talented and celebrated actors and directors who had been a great influence on her growing up. She is of Punjabi descent on her father's side, and on her mother's side she is of Sindhi and British descent. Describing herself as a "very naughty [and] spoilt child", Kapoor's exposure to films from a young age kindled her interest in acting; she was particularly inspired by the work of actresses Nargis and Meena Kumari. Despite her family background, her father disapproved of women entering films because he believed it conflicted with the traditional maternal duties and responsibility of women in the family. This led to a conflict between her parents, and they separated. She was then raised by her mother, who worked several jobs to support her daughters until Karisma debuted as an actress in 1991. After living separately for several years, her parents reconciled in October 2007. Kapoor remarked "My father is also an important factor in my life [...] [Al]though we did not see him often in our initial years, we are a family now."
