Birthday girl Kareena Kapoor’s 5 avatars that hit back at ‘body-shaming’


Kareena Kapoor Khan is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful divas of Bollywood has been proving herself to stay on the top of her contemporaries. Today, our darling Bebo turns 38 and the ‘Veere Di Wedding’ star will be celebrating her birthday with hubby Saif Ali Khan and cutie-pie Taimur.

With a career span of over eighteen years, Kareena has always been transforming herself to be better than the best. Her confidence and zest to compete in the race of Bollywood actress always put her on the top of everyone. Bebo is now also setting fitness goals for her fans by constantly sharing her workout videos on the social media. But like every other celeb Kareena too has been a victim to body shaming?

Earlier when Bebo entered the film industry, she was very chubby but later after some instances of body shaming, Kareena transformed herself to look the best. So, on the occasion of Kareena’s birthday, let’s take a look at these 5 avatars of Bebo which prove that the actress is not ready to take body shaming any more.

Chubby and cute Kareena

During the initial stage of her career, Kareena was looking chubby yet attractive. In the films like Fida, Omkara, Khushi, Hulchal and others, Kareena’s look was loved by the audiences but did criticise for being overweight for an actress. At that time, she managed to survive in the industry with her power-packed performances.

Size zero trendsetter

After facing criticism for overweightness, Kareena surprised everyone after setting a trend of size zero in 2008 with the film, Tashan. Bebo’s skinny avatar had blown audience’s mind. However, this time the change of body didn’t work in Bebo’s favour as her film Tashan tanked at the box-office. Since then, Bebo said strict ‘NO’ to size zero.

Healthier Bebo

After not gaining much attention for size zero, Bebo again gained weight and looked supremely attractive as ever before. This time, she put a complete full-stop on body-shammers’ face. Her look in films like 3 Idiots, Bodyguard and others were loved by all and since then, Bebo is still increasing many heartbeats with her appearances on-screen.


Kareena got married to Saif Ali Khan in 2012 while she gave birth to her little munchkin Taimur in 2016. Before Taimur’s birth, Kareena had got a yummy-mummy glow on her face. A pregnancy glow on Bebo’s face was indeed beautiful and eye catchy. During her third trimester period, Bebo was confidently roaming outside and had attended many functions and event with hubby Saif. Sometimes, Bebo was criticised for her outfits and wardrobe malfunctions, but the actress didn’t care and lived the life on her own terms.

Fitness Freak 

Lastly, Kareena is giving major fitness goals to her fans. After the birth of Taimur, Bebo soon hit the gym to get the right physique. Her body posture, workout session proved that you can bring hotness in fitness as well. We must say, Bebo is the perfect example for breaking stereotypes many times in the industry.

On the work front, Kareena Kapoor Khan will next be seen in Karan Johar’ Takht which also stars Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor. The film is scheduled to release in 2020.
