“I want to be work­ing till I die, till my hands and limbs are work­ing”

India Today - - EMPOWERMENT - By Suhani Singh

She be­longs to one of Bol­ly­wood’s most cel­e­brated fam­i­lies but Ka­reena Kapoor Khan has earned her lau­rels on merit. Whether it is play­ing Geet (Jab We Met, 2007), still the gold stan­dard for spir­ited young woman on screen, show­cas­ing her comic tim­ing

(Gol­maal films), be­ing the pas­sion­ate desi Des­de­mona (Omkara, 2006) or the brazen sex worker (Chameli, 2003) Kapoor Khan knows how to bring her A game. It’s not that she hasn’t had her share of ques­tion­able choices (Kam­bakkht Ishq, 2009) and bizarre re­jec­tions (Goliyon Ki Rasleela...Ram Leela,

2013) but she has man­aged to hold her ground in Hindi cin­ema. Post mar­riage and baby, the ac­tress shows no signs of slow­ing down. Last year, she walked away with her thespian cre­den­tials in­tact in a sub­par film (Ki & Ka), and demon­strated how she as­serts max­i­mum im­pact in min­i­mum time with her per­for­mance in Ab­hishek Chaub­hey’s drug drama Udta

Pun­jab. From grac­ing mag­a­zine cov­ers with her baby bump to walk­ing the ramp, she demon­strates the acu­men of a driven woman. She re­sumes from where she left off. She will head­line the fe­male en­sem­ble drama Veerey

Di Wed­ding. She is stay­ing true to her dik­tat “I want to be work­ing till I die, till my hands and limbs are work­ing.”
