Kareena Kapoor represents the fourth generation of the Kapoor Family and says that acting is in her genes and, she’s absolutely right. Being in the film industry for over 85 years, nothing less is expected. Prithviraj Kapoor was the first Kapoor to get into the industry by entering showbiz in 1928 where his 3 sons followed and soon where Shashi Kapoor’s wife Jennifer became the first female to act in movies from the family.
From then on it all the Kapoor’s did. Every generation entered the industry and continued making an impact on the industry. By the fourth generation it was Karishma; daughter of Randhir and Babita Kapoor who was the first Kapoor female by birth of the Kapoor family to continue in the footpath laid out and carry the legacy. Kareena also followed her sister’s footsteps.
By being involved in the industry for over 85 years and with Indian cinema celebrating 100 years this year Kareena tells how “As a child, I used to accompany Lolo (Karishma) to the sets of her films, so I’ve seen the industry grow and vice versa. I have nothing but the highest regards for the industry,”
Kareena now has finished off 13 years in the industry being a part of over 45 films with many hits such as Ajnabee, Jab We Met and 3 Idiots.
