Celebrating 20 Years Of Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Matchless Sass: These 5 Savage Retorts Are Pure Gold!
You can love her or hate her, but you just can’t ignore the stuff Bebo says!
Kareena Kapoor Khan isn’t one to mince words. Be it her priceless wit, or the unrefutable charm that only seems to be getting better with age, Bebo is quite the ‘Gossip Queen’ of Bollywood and she wears the tag with pride! From snapping at contemporaries in the snazziest of ways to owning her life choices with absolute pride, here are 5 unforgettable things the Pataudi begum actually said!
Rating Aamir Khan a ‘minus’ in a recent episode of Koffee With Karan
In a teaser that launched from her episode with Aamir Khan, Bebo was seen pulling Khan’s leg constantly. Every reply that she gave reeked of sarcasm. However, the one that actually took the cake was when Khan asked her to rate him for his fashion sense and at once she said minus. Ouch!
Infamous catfight with Bipasha Basu
The actresses locking in a cat fight on the set of 2001’s Ajnabee became the topic of nationwide discussion. According to popular reports, Khan reportedly slapped her and called her a ‘kaali billi’. Then in an interview with a magazine, she said, “She just doesn’t seem to have any confidence in her own talent. In a four-page interview, she spoke about me for three pages. Why not talk about your work? I think her only claim to fame is that she fought with me during Ajnabee over dress designer Vikram Phadnis. She’s given statements that I called her uncharitable names. Now, that’s a figment of her imagination.”
When Bebo ‘judged’ her co-stars
Khan has evolved into a mature person. But back in the 2000s, news was rife that the Kapoor girl wasn’t easy to please or even work with. From constant tiffs with costars to being blatantly judgemental, Kapoor has been accused of so much and more. In an old interview, Kareena had no qualms in admitting that she only ‘works with legends’ and doesn’t bother getting worked up about the rest. Wow. Just Wow. *Slow Clap*.
Her catty response to Preity Zinta’s nepotism comment
Preity G Zinta had discussed nepotism in one of her interviews, to which Khan had replied that the competition that she was referring to was something Zinta wasn’t a part of. While it’s reported that Bebo had later clarified that the statement had gotten misinterpreted, Zinta was no longer interested.
On giving ‘great roles’ to other actresses
In another interview, Bebo opined that she chose to do Gori Tere Pyaar Mein over Ram-Leela. She further added that in a way her decision helped other actresses build their ‘careers’!
An indirect dig at Mira Rajput Kapoor on working post pregnancy
Mira Rajput Kapoor once opined how she liked being a stay-at-home mom, as a kid is not a puppy who would be taken care of by staff. She further added that she was in no hurry to rush to work. Many felt it seemed like a dig at Shahid Kapoor’s ex, Kareena Kapoor Khan. To which, Khan’s response in a press conference was: “What kind of a mother I am is something that will unfold with time. I will not scream from rooftops about experiencing motherhood or how much I love Taimur. There’s always the pressure of being judged, no matter what you do. It’s about how you deal with it.”
