Two Top actresses barely ever star in a film together with the fear of being outdone by the other. Yet,Both Kajol and Kareena Kapoor are going to star in Karan Johars remake of Stepmom opposite Arjun Rampal. Well, first im going to express my dissapointment in yet another remake from Hollywood. Second, I dont think that Arjun is bankable enough and strong enough to stand in front of Kajol and Kareena.Having said that, one wonders who will steal the show In StepMom.
Kajol and Kareena are two of the most successfull and appreciated actresses in the industry. Both are said to be scene stealers. Both have even worked together in K3g.
Kajol is an icon and is most likely going to be a more prominent figure in the History of Bollywood. I dont think Kareena can repeat the magic that Kajol has with DDlj,KKHH,K36,Fannaa etc. Kajol is also a trendsetter because even after marriage and a child, she is still in demand. Kajol has 4 Filmfare Best actress awards and Kareena only has 1. Kajol achieved alot more at the age of 28 (Kareena's approximate age) than Kareena has.
On the Other hand, Kareena is also the heiress to the Kapoor family, so she will also remain a prominent figure in the History of Bollywood. She is the top actress today. She is both glamourous and a good actor at the same time. Her position in the industry is one of the most enviable right now. After the super successfull Kambhakt Ishq, she has said that she will ONLY do films that her as the central charaacter.
This raises the question, WHO Do You think will steal the show in Stepmom and walk away with the more meaty role?
Who will be credited as the Actress, and the Supporting Actress?
Kajol or Kareena?
