Kareena Kapoor Khan began her Bollywood journey almost 20 years ago and the actress since then has given her fans and the audience many memorable roles to cherish. Not just in leading roles, but Kareena has also made an impact in supporting roles. The most recent example was her stint in Irrfan and Radhika Madan starrer Angrezi Medium. The actress featured in a never before seen avatar as a London-based cop and left an impression. Her characters Poo in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and Geet in Jab We Met have gone on to become iconic over the years and are loved by millions to this day.  

Despite being for 20 years in the film industry, Kareena has never made headlines for any kind of international work. While her contemporaries like Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra Jonas have gained extensive recognition for their work in Hollywood, Kareena has not pursued Hollywood projects and neither walked the red carpet of any major international film festivals. The actress, however, continues to work and pick experimental scripts based on her extincts. 

 

While one would wonder why an actress like Kareena has refrained from stepping foot into Hollywood, her good friend Karan Johar had once asked her about the same. On an episode of Koffee With Karan, Kareena had made an appearance with Priyanka Chopra Jonas who has now rooted herself in Hollywood. KJo asked Kareena if she ever considered doing Hollywood, to this Kareena said, "I can't go. Am too deeply rooted somewhere here. My family, my love everything is here and now of course my child. I think to just pick up and go.. I think what she (Priyanka) has done is amazing. It's a new fearless version of Priyanka that I see. I really credit her for that. I don' think I have that.. am happy with what what I've done here but I don't think I have that kind of ambition."

Karan then went on to ask Kareena if she feels she is less ambitious than Priyanka. To this, Kareena quickly said, "Well, not necessarily. My achievements will say and speak for itself." At this point, Priyanka chimed in and said, "Also, I don't understand why is going to Hollywood the greatest benchmark of everything?"  To this, Karan said, "I've been asked many times whether I would consider going there, but am happy with what I have here. You (Priyanka) have done it quite well. You have balanced it." 

At this point Priyanka sighed and said,"With no sleep and no food." Kareena smiled at PeeCee and quipped, "Exactly, I need sleep and I need food. And I need my family. But what you have done is spectacular. I think am ambitious but am also very very fiercely private about my family. I have always wanted to have a family, a child and prioritise that."

The way Kareena’s snapped at Karan question

A post shared by Kareena Kapoor Khan FC (@kareenakapoorteam) on

Well, this wasn't the first time that Kareena appreciated Priyanka for her Hollywood stint. In season 5 of KWK, too, Kareena had gone on record and said 'The Sky Is Pink' actress makes India proud and not everyone can succeed at what she is doing. "I feel like what Priyanka has done I don't know if everyone has that kind of courage and dedication to do it. I don't. She makes you feel like she does India proud somewhere. As a proud Indian. She conducts herself really well."

Kareena and Priyanka have not always seen eye to eye given their history. Both the actresses once dated actor Shahid Kapoor and have also made headlines for taking jibes at each other on Karan Johar's show. However, today, the actresses are happily married and have buried their differences in the past.

On the work front, Kareena was last seen in Good Newwz opposite Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani and went on to become a box office hit. Kareena's next role, too, has generated intrigue as the actress will be reuniting with Aamir Khan as his love interest in Laal Singh Chaddha. The film is official Hindi adaptation of Tom Hanks starrer Forrest Gump.

I think she has a life which she enjoys and her family and friends are in India. She has enough to focus on in India. Hollywood is for the newcomers who never wore a sari in their life.

Does her pathetic PR have nothing more to do than insult another actress every day? Oh yeah, I forgot, priyanka doesn't have a single job anymore so her PR is also jobless :p

Kareena has the acting chops and natural looks for Hwood but she knows what goes on there. She was being kind and politically correct by saying she doesn’t have the ambition to go there but she meant something else. She’s not gonna compromise herself or family for 5 mins there even though it means she can bilk it for lifelong PR in Bwood

Uggh, Kjo and gang are despicable. Say what you want about PC but she has reached new heights as an INDIAN star that I would say only the late Irrfan Khan had. You have to live in the US to understand how famous she is. And no, it's not all built on skill. Quantico sucked. Being married to Nick alone will make people remember her forever in America. Yeah, as far as INDIAN AMERICAN, there are people much more famous than her. But Kareena is and will always be petty.

Can Kareena please just stop talking about herself and cease being a narcissist for just a second? Priyanka is such a monumental superstar. So some humility and respect please.

Hmm like PC made it big in Hollywood- Quantico got cancelled after two seasons which was a big flop, she had sidey roles in all the Hollywood movies she did. The 'Sky is pink' was one of the biggest flops of 2019. She is doing well neither here nor there. Kareena is thriving here because she focuses on what's she is good at, smart woman without jumping ships.

I live in the US my dahling, I live close to NY as well and no ABC is not the biggest network in the US, CBS is. Whether your show gets axed in the first season or third its irrelevant, the matter of fact is, its axed and that's a big loss to the production company. Pc has no stardom here except I see her picture standing with some women at some random doctor's office for Obagi. I have actually seen Ash' s pic for L'oreal on billboards even Freida's all across the US. Most people don't even like the Jonas brothers. Heck even Meghan Markle has more stardom than pc. No crime in being proud, just dont lie, many people who are not her fans live in the US as well and will see through your lies and call you out on it.

Quantico had 3 season run. Its a big deal to be the face of the prime time show on the biggest network in America and carry the show for 3 seasons. There are huge celebrities who get axed in first season itself. I'm an Indian living in NY. I know what kind of stardom PC has. And I'm very proud of it.

Yeah well in other words 'Kareena doesn't want to make a fool of herself like KB' Both Deepika Nad Ash reed their hand in Hollywood but were smart enough to realize they wouldn't be accepted like the mainstream Hollywood actresses. They gave up and returned to their home turf. But not KB she doesn't mind making fool of herself no matter anywhere, much like her outfit on the show-now she is like dobhi ka kutha, na ghar ka nah ghat Kha. KB doesn't realize how cringey and embarrassing some of the stuff she does is, I guess in her case ignorance is bliss. And LOL KB's face when Karan says Kareena is natural.

Kareena knew what would be happen to Priyanka. And she was right! Look at PC today. Jobless ex Bollywood starlet with small cameos in her husband vids. Who wants such a pathetic career? Well done Kareena, still a big Bollywood star.

So so true ,finally somebody had the guts to say this....Actually if you see the top league stars mostly have always been non nepo kids....Dilip kumar , Rajesh khanna , Amitabh bachchan, Srk, Akshay kumar....Hema Malini , sridevi, madhuri, Aishwarya, Priyanka, manisha, meenakshi, Deepika....well isn’t that most ironic...

So if Priyanka had Srk what about Ash & Deepika ???? To even get a movie offer or to be invited on a us talk show is not everyone’s cup of tea...

Aishwarya was two timing with Salman and SRK. When Sallu came to know about it he showed up on Chalte Chalte set and had showdown with SRK. So SRK broke off with miss purest of the pure and threw her out of all his movies. In return she broke off with sallu and pretended to be in love with Vivek. Poor guy is still paying for it. Ash went to Hollywood only to be butt of joke for her acting abilities

Aishwarya and Deepika had no need to sleep with a married man or to destroy a former happy family to reach their goal. Decent and true superstars!

FYI, Saeed Jaffrey was the first Bollywood actor who worked in Hollywood movies (with Sean Connery). Then Kabir Bedi in Sandocan, Amrish Puri in Indiana Jones and the Temple of doom,Anupam Kher in Bend it like Beckam, Nassrudin Shah in Extraordinary Men, Amitabh bacchan in Great Gatsby, Anil Kapoor in Slumdog Millionaire, Irfan Khan in Life of Pi, Jurassic Park. Please get your facts clear. Thank you
