Am I missing something. Kareena Kapoor can you explain why your advice to Sara was to not date Sushant Ji. Is it because you fancied him! Or cause you for a nasty piece of work.

Welll even after 20 years she has a loose tongue.... rating others as non worthy. Overrated hyped only by her own judgement . Yeah right you woke up at 4am....not to reminisce but cause of your guilty conscience. Know when to talk and when to keep it shut that’s what you should have learnt. . Plus the film was a flop...if I remember correctly..u walked out of the one with your “first hero” which went on to be a blockbuster. Why exactly are you so proud.

Her only worth while role ‘jab we met’ came after rows of flops for seven year, could and outsider actor have survived with those number of flops. People of who say, why the audience watchS Nepo kids, no we don’t. They are literally shoved down our throat movie after movie, despite us rejecting them. Same is the case with Sonam Kapoor.

Geet character was a milestone to the indian cinema. She played that very well. She has more talent than she knows of. She only needs good directors to direct her. Omkara was brilliant!

Over rated. Her sister is miles ahead of her in looks and talents. Even in jan we met which is “her best performance” she is screeching and annoying as anything. Only got so much accolades Bc of her name. The only acting she did half wya decent was her first movie. It’s been pretentious overacting since. Any movie where she has a second heroine beside her shows her lack of talent. Look at aitraaz - priyabka was much better (even though in real life priyanka is just as bad and phony). And in ajnabee bips walked away w all the accolades. Kareena is beyond over rated

20 years of what? Blink and vanish roles? When was the last time she actually carried a movie on her shoulders? A some kind of intense role? Her role like Bajarangi Bhai Jan is so in significant I felt uncomfortable even watching her in that character.
