Bebo Main Bebo! Say hello to cover girl Kareena Kapoor Khan


With a surname to boot and a persona that can launch any brand, meet Bebo Version 3.0 who flits effortlessly from being a fitness fanatic to someone who certainly values her off-camera life more than ever. As a cover star of HELLO! Kareena comes across as a refreshingly ‘real’ actress and a highly fulfilled human being… not to mention a self-professed style creator and consumer. A strong and vibrant woman that makes her presence known, Kareena Kapoor Khan is the epitome of that muse who can pull off any tricky colour, fabric or silhouette with equal and enviable élan. Speaking about dabbling it all, Kareena spills the beans on maintaining a work-life balance with hubby Saif Ali Khan, devoting time to her adorable little munchkin, Taimur Ali Khan and her recent film, ‘Veere Di Wedding’ in addition to being fit and fab!

The photoshoot has been lensed by Prasad Naik, styled by Sonam Poladia and shot at The House of Nomad, Taj Lands End. The glam squad featured ace makeup artist Mickey Contractor and hairstylist Gabriel Georgiou. Here is a closer look at the cover and the pictures from the photoshoot.

“I don’t think Veere Di Wedding was a desi Sex and the City. To me it wasn’t about branded clothes and shoes and all of that; Veere had a lot many more layers, given in India so many things are taboo. It was quite path-breaking.”

Kareena Kapoor Khan- Stunning and how!Kareena wears a floral off-shoulder high-low gown from Bambah, a fur jacket from The Source paired with a double-fingered Mughal emerald cocktail ring from Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas Jewellers and metallic boots from Truffle.

“Whether it is our shoot timings, holidays, we don’t like leaving him at all. It’s always about what we can do with him. Apart from work, our entire life is around Taimur.”

“I am definitely not one of those mothers who say I am only busy with my child; of course I am there to love him and nurture him, to tell him what’s right and what’s wrong. I want to enjoy my time with him, but it’s important for me to also work”

“I like working out, it sends good, clean signals to the brain. It gets you refreshed early in the morning. I look forward to waking up, spending time with Taimur and then working out.”

On the professional front, Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen in ‘Takht’- period drama by Karan Johar boasting of an impressive star cast featuring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor.
