KAREENA KAPOOR NET WORTH
Born on 21 September 1980, Kareena Kapoor is the daughter of Randhir Kapoor and Babita. She is the granddaughter of Raj Kapoor and great-granddaughter of Prithviraj Kapoor.
Films run through her blood as part of the first family of Indian cinema. It was no doubt that she will also be an actress, like her elder sister Karishma Kapoor.
To make a mark on the film industry, Kareena went to Film and Television Institute of India, which polished her natural skills.
Bebo (Kareena’s pet name) started her career in the year 2000 with ‘Refugee’. The film was a debut for her as well as Abhishek Bachchan. The film flopped but Kareena’s performance got raving reviews and she ended up with the Filmfare best debutant award.
This was just the beginning of the fortune of Kareena Kapoor’s net worth, which is around $11 million (Rs 75 crores). It’s Quite strange that the net worth of Anushka Sharma is greater than Kareena Kapoor’s. As Anushka Sharma is just a new comer in front of Kareena Kapoor.
Kareena is married to actor Saif Ali Khan and is the mother of a 1-year-old baby boy Taimur. As opposed to women losing their stand in the film industry after they get married, Bebo still draws Rs 5 to Rs 8 crores per film. Her charm, sophistication make a deadly combination with her acting skills.
Ms. Kapoor is a versatile actor whereby she has acted in films with all the great names of Bollywood. Be it a commercial extravagance like ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gam’ or a director’s film like ‘Omkaara’, Kareena shines through every performance.
Bebo ’s top-grossing films are where the main lead has been the male actor. But there’s no doubt that these have added to Kareena Kapoor’s net worth. It’s not a surprise that her top grossers are with the Three Khans of Bollywood.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan( Box Office Collection 629 crore) – with Salman Khan.
Kareena Kapoor plays ‘Rasika’ the girl who supports ‘Bajrangi’, played by Salman Khan when he is trying to get a mute Pakistani child back to her native village. Her role was as substantial as Salman’s, but her presence in the film made all the difference.
3 Idiots (Box Office Collection 460 crore) – with Aamir Khan
This movie is based on a novel by Chetan Bhagat, a modern-day novelist. The movie revolves around 3 friends who are studying in an engineering college but are constantly in trouble with the principal.
Kareena Kapoor is the daughter of the principal who manages to bail them out from the situations. She is in love with ‘Rancho’ played by Aamir Khan but is not sure if he feels the same way about her.
The film has dealt with issues that the youth face when they have to fulfill their parents’ dreams against their will.
Ra.One (Box Office Collection 237 crore) – with Shahrukh Khan
This was an ambitious project by Shahrukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. It’s in the Sci-Fi genre which is about a game designed by ‘Shekhar Subramanium’, a game designer, played by Shahrukh. Kareena Kapoor is his wife ‘Sonia’ who has to take care of her son after her husband is killed by the character that he creates. The movie is basically a fight between the good and the evil.
Even though Kareena has played a secondary role with the Khans, she has stood out on her own in her latest film ‘Veere Ki Wedding’. She plays one the four friends who reunite after 10 years as one of them is getting married.
It’s an all ‘girls’ film that has added to Kareena Kapoor’s net worth as the box office collection is an expected Rs 137.72 crores.
Apart from films, the gorgeous gal endorses brands that add to her net worth.
Lux Beauty Soap and Pepsi have paid her Rs 5 crores each for their advertisements. She has earned Rs 5 crore each from her endorsements of Citizen Eco-Drive Watches and Airtel as well.
Apart from these, Kareena has earned Rs 3 to Rs 4 crores for her other endorsements like Sony, Head & Shoulders, Boroplus, Colgate, Lakme, etc. She is said to have 18 endorsement deals at any given time. But she only accepts deals for the products she truly believes in.
Kareena realizes that, as a mother, she has to be a role model for her child and has ensured that she sets the right values that her son can look up to.
The Begum (as he is one now) knows the power her name has on the masses and so she ensures that it is not misused.
Kareena is a perfect example that shows that fame and money are responsibilities which have to be shouldered with care.
