Size Zero for Skinny Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor has men swooning after her. Heck, she even has the women going wow! But, according to a recent survey, skinny models in advertisements don’t seem to be driving the sales. So how true is this really and why is thin not in anymore?

Ad guru Mohan Menon says, “The whole thin is in, or out is really a phase, which was brought by magazines like Vogue. They initially use skinny models and then graduate to fuller, more buxom women as their pin-up girls. I personally do not think that you need a skinny girl to sell a product. When we look at ads, we are looking for something identifiable. Let’s take Kareena Kapoor for example. The girl is reed thin. Unless she has an extremely high-rate of metabolism, I don’t see how or where all that cola that she endorses goes,” says an amused Mohan Menon.

Ad man JD Jerry agrees with the study and says that the findings are true, especially down south, where fuller women are considered to be more attractive.

Model Rochelle, who is a size-zero herself says, “I completely agree with the survey. Ads should have models that the general population can identify with. As a model, I am required to be fit, but trust me, there are days when I have struggled to get into outfits and have worn stuff that I’m not comfortable with. Women, irrespective of their physical structure, should be comfortable with their own bodies and ads should definitely be more realistic, because unless the audience sees themselves in the product or as the aspirational user, they are not going to buy it.”

Another increasing concern is the effect the size zero fad has on youngsters. Nutritionist Rashmi Nambiar says, “A number of teenagers and aspiring models come to me saying that in their bid to lose weight, they starve themselves and take dietary supplements to curb their hunger pangs. Indian women can hardly ever be a size zero because our bone structure is not suited to that figure. We have been blessed with curvaceous bodies and we should aim at keeping ourselves healthy and fit, instead of running after this trend. It could also prove to be dangerous and these ads could bring about low self-esteem and confidence,” says Rashmi.

Agreeing with Rashmi is designer Julie, who says that she has had clients leave her shop because they are unsure about wearing an outfit that has been modelled by a skinny girl. “I have had cases where my clients will love the dresses they see on the ramp, but will refuse to buy it because they think it will not flatter their body type. I have to then convince them and tell them that it can be made to suit their requirements. A majority of my clientele consists of women with fuller figures and I love dressing them. Ramps should promote more reality. Indian women are voluptuous and there is no reason why we shouldn’t flaunt it,” asserts Julie.

So, why then is the Indian runway filled with anorexic women who have porcelain faces and an attitude to match? “While I think it is essential to be fit, I don’t think size zero is healthy at all,” says Karun Raman, a fashion choreographer. “Curvier women have an oomph quotient that skinny models lack. A woman who fills out her clothes is definitely sexier than someone who is just all skin and bones. Give me a Salma Hayek over a Kate Moss any day baby!” says Karun.

Bebo To Start A School For Handicap Kids!

Kareena Kapoor has many plans for her future. Apart from collecting a showcase full of awards, she wishes to start a yoga school for underprivileged and handicapped children.

Apparently, sister Karisma Kapoor also plans to join in with Bebo. When asked about the same, Kareena gave a reluctant reply –


“I am uncomfortable talking about such things. I feel it’s best to talk when the time is right and they happen. Lolo and I have plans some of building a school for underprivileged and handicapped children. We have such schools all over but we need to have specially equipped ones with people fully qualified to take care of the children and their special needs. It’s been a dream for both of us to have such a school but these are plans which will take shape much later — all in good time.”

Kareena Plays a True Ektaa Kapoor Fan!


Kareena Kapoor has surprisingly again taken up a multi-starrer film Golmal and the reason for that, like always is that Bebo has a very interesting role.She plays a true blue Ektaa Kapoor fan in the film. Infact, her character is called Ekta too. She plays a young housewife who is badly influenced by Ektaa Kapoor’s ‘K’ serials and is always accusing her husband (Ajay Devgan) of cheating on her.

“Bebo plays a housewife who is heavily inspired by the saas-bahu serials. She is able to draw a parallel between her husband’s infidelity with specific instances of infidelity from some of the TV serials. It’s hilarious!” confirms Tusshar Kapoor.

Fitness Freak Kareena Impresses Aamir Khan

kareena aamir

Kareena Kapoor, in her new skinny avatar, was dismissed as anorexic by many. But look what Kareena has won herself - an admirer none other than Aamir Khan.

Aamir Khan who is known to keep to himself while shooting for his films apparently shared a great rapport with Bebo and they would have long conversations over fitness.

Aamir talking to a news daily exclaimed, “Kareena has a great body. She is a fitness freak and her devotion towards her workouts has definitely made an impact on me.”


Kareena a Fan of Saif’s Ex-Wife


Kareena Kapoor may still have 3-4 years more to go before she walks down the aisle and says Kubool Hai to Saif, but she is trying her level best to fit in to Saif’s family well in advance. She has bonded well with the Pataudis, Saif’s kids Sarah and Ibrahim also like her and guess who she is ready to break the ice with - Saif’s ex-wife Amrita Singh.

In an interview she revealed, “I respect the fact that Saif was married before and has two lovely children. I have been a fan of Amrita Singh. I haven’t met her ever but I know her through her films. For me, she’ll always have a place of importance in his life because she is Saif Ali Khan’s first wife and the mother of his children. And, I’ve told Saif this. I would want her to have that kind of respect always. This is what my parents have taught me. At the end of the day, it was just a marriage that didn’t work out. I have always encouraged Saif to be friends with her because I think that would be great. I guess they will just need time but that’s something that they would need to deal with. I will always respect her. As far as any other relationship of Saif is concerned, I don’t think they really mattered.”


Kareena Kapoor will be seen romancing her Saif in Raghavan’s spy thriller Agent Vinod . Saif plays the title role and Kareena, his love interest. Reportedly, Deepika was the first choice for the female lead in Agent Vinod but it seems Kareena was in no mood to take yet another defeat from the young star. However, director Raghavan explains that he never approached Deepika for the film. But yes he is keen to work with Kareena for the same.


Ever since Agent Vinod was announced, Bebo was keen on bagging the role and made sure that Deepika doesn’t get away with her sweety pie this time. Perhaps the lady just wants to be with Saif at all times, at work and otherwise and keep his attention solely on her. We all are aware of Saif’s Casanova ways, aren’t we?

When asked, S Raghavan confirmed, “I haven’t yet signed her but hope to do that soon. I can give more details only by December end.” The film will have two leading ladies � an Indian (Kareena) and a foreign actress. The film will go on the floors in March 2009. Apart from this, Saifeena will be seen together in Karan Johar’s next.

Kareena not happy with Amrita's marriage plan

kareena aamrita

The entire industry is aware that Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Arora are the best of buddies and care a lot for each other.

Recently, when Kareena got the news of Amrita's plan to get married to boyfriend Shakeel Ladak next year she was quite upset.

She is worried mainly about Amrita’s career, which is somewhat on a high right now.

Reportedly, Amrita has decided to tie the knot under pressure from her family.

Amrita has been in and out of relationships in the past and hence the family does not want to take any more chances. They want that like sister Malaika, who got married when she was 23, Amrita also should get married as she is already 28.

According to sources, Kareena thinks it's too soon for Amrita to settle down. She feels that she should think before rushing into this big decision.

The source further added that Bebo always speaks her mind. She also feels that Amu's career is now looking up and it is a wrong decision for her to get hitched right now. Kareena wants Amu to give some more time to her relationship with Shakeel and not jump into marriage right away.

I've also met Daboo uncle (Randhir) a few times, shared friendly drinks with him. As for Karisma, I think she's the sweetest girl ever in the world.

The actor, who suffered a mild heart attack in 2007, says his lifestyle has now changed completely.

"My lifestyle has changed completely after the heart attack. Looking back it's hard to believe I went through such a health scare.

Kareena see her future with Saif


Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan have been together for more than a year now. Her love life with Shahid Kapoor never really made so much news but with Saif, she's been painting the town red for months now. They have been 'joined at the hip' and their off screen pairing has made more news than their careers.

Bebo has recently opened up more in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine and has talked in detail about family approval, marriage, kids and the challenges of being in love.

She's said, "I want to get married and have children. I would do anything to keep a relationship going. For me, time is a very precious commodity and I'm always there for Saif. And that says a lot. It's very easy to talk about fidelity, loyalty and swimming the seven seas but considering the lives we lead, I think the most important thing in a relationship is the amount of time you can spend with each other."

She's made it clear that she has had no problems with Saif being married before. In fact she respects Saif's ex wife Amrita a lot!

She addsed "Not really. I respect the fact that Saif was married before and has two lovely children. I have been a fan of Amrita Singh. I haven't met her ever but I know her through her films. For me, she'll always have a place of importance in his life because she is Saif Ali Khan's first wife and the mother of his children. And, I've told Saif this. I would want her to have that kind of respect always. This is what my parents have taught me. At the end of the day, it was just a marriage that didn't work out. I have always encouraged Saif to be friends with her because I think that would be great. I guess they will just need time but that's something that they would need to deal with. I will always respect her. As far as any other relationship of Saif is concerned, I don't think they really mattered."

She sees a future ahead with Saifu too.

She's said, "Of course, we do talk about the future. If I was to imagine what it would be like 30 or 40 years from now, I see Saif and me on a yacht, sailing across the world."

It will be great to see another rare real life pairing lasting so long in the big bad world of Bollywood.

Akshay in trunks to woo Kareena in bikini for ‘Kambakht Ishq’

Sajid Nadiadwala's 'Kambakht Ishq' is certainly looking more than promising, what with Akshay Kumar's death defying stunts and Kareena Kapoor's size-zero body in bikinis!

The feisty babe is all set to give her beau, Saif Ali Khan, some sleepless nights as she strips down to a two-piece to get close and intimate with Akshay, who will be luring the lady in nothing but trunks.

While Kareena's two-piece look has been designed by Akki Narula, Akshay Kumar's look has been done by Shabina Khan. The 'Khiladi' wants to give his best shot in the shorts - and, sources say: "Akshay is on a restricted diet for the last 40 days."

The twosome is sure to send temperatures soaring, as they perform some underwater sequences for the film, in the exotic locales of a scenic village in Venice.

To create an underwater effect, a fairly expensive set was put up. A suburban swimming pool was first drained of all the water. Thereafter, a replica of a Venetian lansdscape was created by noted set designers, Acropolis. While the mountains were made of acrylic, the coral for the coral reef was flown in from Venice.

After the set was designed, water was poured back into the pool and a glass chamber was erected so that the film could be shot

Kareena will be a Khan in three years!

"Marriage will happen for sure.. but after three years," Kareena told HT in an interview.

Reacting to recent tabloid reports, attributed to her friends, that she was finding Saif's unceasing attention oppressive, Kareena said, "That's so unfair, really. I'm doing five films.. he believes in doing one at a time. So, we try to grab as much time as we can get together."

"He keeps showering me with presents.. the best was a holiday in Maldives," she added.

Asked if Saif had given her any diamonds, Kareena responded, "Woh bhi diya hai.. clothes.. small trips.. but the most expensive thing that he has given me.. is his time."

"Myself," the ever so modest Kareena responded.

Loudmouth Kareena Kapoor at it again

Kareena Kapoor
- No one can accuse Kareena Kapoor of being modest. Earlier this week the Kapoor loudmouth alluded to herself as a superstar and now she is going around calling herself Bollywood's best actress.

When Kareena was asked if her commitments to her career and Saif were ever at odds, she said, "There's no comparison between the two. When I'm working, I'm working. And when I'm with him (Saif), I'm all there."

Going totally out of context she added, "Besides, Saif is a superstar himself. He's so busy."

Suggesting that both she and Saif Ali Khan were superstars. That is about as subtle as Kareena can ever get!

Speaking about her Hollywood projects Kareena told IANS:

"I have been offered one project but I am actually very happy doing Indian films. Its tough to do a Hollywood film - I mean the language and stuff, I can't put on an accent."

She then cheekily added, "I would rather be the best here than go there."

Kareena Kapoor is undoubtedly a fine actress if not a modest one, but she is certainly not the finest with talents such as Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Vidya Balan and Tabu to contend with.

Before Jab We Met (2007) her last hit was Omkara (2006) and before that Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001).

Being a loud mouth has its advantages. For example, something that Kareena will never need is a PR.

Kareena Kapoor back at the top!

Kareena Kapoor
Talented actress Kareena Kapoor can put the stunning failure of her earlier release this year, Tashan, behind her, going by the thumping response to Golmaal Returns in which she plays a prominent role.

Though Golmaal Retruns has an ensemble cast, the film producers featured Kareena prominently in its promotional campaign with a view of leveraging her considerable fan base and the strategy has paid off!

A trade analyst reveals, "Golmaal Returns has recorded the biggest opening ever and the fact that Kareena was centrestage in its publicity has proved that she is the film's biggest draw."

The opening for the first day was impressive at 95-100%. The film has matched historic openers like Om Shanti Om and Singh Is Kinng on day one in terms of capacity though the film has been released on a lesser volume of shows than those films.

It's the best ever opening that Kareena has ever had and it's time for Bebo to celebrate.

Why Kareena Kapoor amazes Vivek Oberoi!

 Kareena Kapoor
 Despite his MISSION ISTAANBUL falling like a pack of cards at the ticket window, Vivek Oberoi is not unduly worried and the reason behind his cool and calm composure are his upcoming projects with top directors and producers of the industry. One such venture that he is very confident about is Karan Johar's Rensil D'Silva directed untitled film opposite one of the most famous and talked about couple of Bollywood, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor.  This is Vivek's second film with Saif Ali Khan after the award–winning OMKARA, where both Saif and Vivek put up sterling performances. Vivek is all praise for his OMKARA co–star, who he shares a great rapport with but it's his girlfriend and actress Kareena Kapoor who amazes Vivek with her style of functioning. Vivek says that Kareena is a spontaneous actress and her spontaneity amazed him (just like Hrithik Roshan in KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM!). Vivek discloses that Kareena comes unprepared to the sets and believes in no rehearsals, and moreover she does not need many re–takes to deliver a mind–blowing performance.  Infact Vivek adds that at times when he delivers his lines Kareena comes up with totally different ones or she simply forgets and starts to smile. She makes the tense atmosphere on the sets light with her easy going attitude. After working with her for a while now, Vivek has now got used to Kareena's style of working and is full of admiration for his co–star, who he feels contributes to a stress free and light working environment, where there is no pressure and thus all perform brilliantly.  Here's looking forward to another winner from the Dharma Production stable after DOSTANA!

Kareena Kapoor: Now I know how to say no!

Kareena Kapoor:
Being the most sought after female star in Bollywood comes at a price and Kareena Kapoor is paying it. Overwhelmed by her current work assignments, the talented actress says she has now learnt to say no.

"I've been working at a breakneck speed for over a year and a half now. I have no time for anything!" says Kareena.

Following a prolonged downturn in her career, Kareena bounced back with Jab We Met (2007). She cashed in on her success by taking on as many endorsements and films that she could possibly handle, not to mention dumping her boyfriend Shahid Kapoor for the so far unlucky in love Saif Ali Khan.

Kareena now realizes that she may have bitten more than she would care to chew.

"I am doing so many things at a time that I don't know if I am coming or going. I have not even been able to meet my niece (sister Karisma's daughter Samaira) properly," she says.

"Now I know how to say no," she adds.

"In my personal life, however, I still get dominated by people around me," she goes on with a smile.

Oh! Oh!

Kareena's latest film, Golmaal Returns, has already grossed Rs 89 crore worldwide but audience keep keeping in droves and the continued ring of box office registers has is gladdening a lot of hearts

"The reaction has been extremely positive. I am really happy," she says.

Kareena is “stronger” now

At the same time Kareena says about Saif, he is her perfect man.

Actor Kareena Kapoor thinks she’s stronger now. “I’m a stronger girl now, far more at ease with myself than I was earlier. I’m doing things, which I want to,” the actor said to media.

At the same time Kareena says about Saif, he is her perfect man. “He is fun and extremely loyal. He has all the qualities which I always wanted in a man. He is also very supportive and gives me space.”

Talking about her break-up with Shahid Kapoor she said, “It was a very difficult perieod. Whatever went wrong between Shahid and me is very personal. I have always maintained that Shahid will always be a part of my life.

But, we are better off as friends. There is no animosity… Some times there are no reasones for things that happen in life. Even if there’s one, I dont think its right to talk about it openly.”

Marriage she says will happen in about 2-3 years time hopefully with Saif. Till then she just wants to be with him.

Global soft drinks and foods major PepsiCo has roped in Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor as brand ambassador for its snack food products

With this, Kareena joins Saif Ali Khan, Juhi Chawla, and MS Dhoni, who are also ambassadors for PepsiCo's snack food products.

As a part of the new campaign, Kareena will be seen in a new television commercial that will go on air by mid-November 2008. The campaign also includes radio and outdoor promotion, including on-ground activities.

"Kareena's vibrant persona, pan-India appeal and her confident attitude makes her a great fit for our brands," PepsiCo India Holdings (FritoLay Division) Director (Marketing) Deepika Warrier said.

She said the Indian snacks market, estimated to be worth about Rs 2,500 crore, has been growing in excess of 20 per cent and Kurkure is one of the leading brands.

The company is aiming to capture a significant portion of this market and has recently come up with sub-brands of Kurkure, such as Kurkure Desi Beats in two different flavours.

Kurkure, launched in 1999, is available in flavours like Masala Munch, Naughty Tomatoes, Chilli Chatka, Tamatar Hyderabadi Style and Green Chutney Rajasthani Style.

Kareena skips Saif's concert for Shah Rukh


Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor proved that her heart does not rule her head at all times. She chose to fulfill her professional commitment to Shah Rukh Khan over attending beau Saif's rock concert.

Her long-standing differences with Shah Rukh Khan which go back to the time when she refused to do Karan Johar's Kal Ho Na Ho for monetary reasons, have finally dissolved.

On Friday, Kareena danced for a television show being filmed for Children's Day, being produced for Star Plus by Shah Rukh's Red Chillies' company.

The offer put her in a dilemma. It clashed with Saif Ali Khan's rock concert with the band Parirkrama for charity. Kareena opted for Shah Rukh's show.

Says the actress: "I had no choice. Shah Rukh's show was a commitment I made much earlier. I've to dance and I'll be getting an award for my popularity with children. Very sadly I'll have to skip Saif's concert. But I know he'll understand."

Kareena needs to get a life

She is arguably the number one actress in Bollywood right now, with film producers and many brands making a beeline for her. There’s no denying that Kareena Kapoor is on an all-time high. There is a flip side course. “I’ve been working at a breakneck speed for over a year and a half now. I have no time for anything!” she says.

The sexy star candidly admits that one of her biggest problems is poor time management. “I am doing so many things at a time that I don’t know if I am coming or going. I have not even been able to meet my niece (sister Karisma’s daughter Samaira) properly,” she laments, “How can I be friends with anyone? I don’t even have any time for my personal life.”

Kareena claims she is a much stronger person now. Does that mean she has stopped trying to please everyone? “Actually yes, now I know how to say no. In my personal life, however, I still get dominated by people around me,” she says with a smile.

Talking about her brand value, Kareena thinks she is approached by most advertisers only because of the kind of image she has. “I have this family image. I am not the kind who would go around doing drastically bold roles. I have to be comfortable with the character I am playing,” she says candidly.

But right now what has really pleased her is the success of her last film Golmaal Returns. “The reaction has been extremely positive. I am really happy,” she says.
