In an old interview, Kareena Kapoor talks about Sridevi. Kareena said she and her sister Karishma Kapoor were crazy about her looks
Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor has a huge fan following across the world. Many actresses have been inspired by her acting skills. Alia Bhatt is one such actress who is a die-hard fan of Bebo. And, how can we forget her step-daughter Sara Ali Khan who was awestruck when she got to know her father Saif Ali Khan will marry her ‘Poo’ of 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham'.
But, do you know, who was Kareena's inspiration?
It was none other than the late Sridevi. We found an old interview of Bebo's where she went gaga over Sridevi's beauty and her dancing. She also said after watching her on-screen she decided that she is going to be an actress.
Here is more on what a young Kareena had to say about Sridevi back then.
When she was asked about her favourite actress, Bebo said, "Oh, I simply love Sridevi. And so does Lolo. She's superb. She's superb. I love the way she dances and sings. I can do it almost the same. Everyone says that I dance even better than her."
She even said that she watched Sridevi's hit films like Mr India and Ram Avtaar five times each. Not just Kareena, her mother Babita and sister Karishma are also big fans of the 'Hawa Hawai' actress. Babita said, "Oh, Sridevi is a family favourite. Both my kids are crazy about her. I think she's great too. They never miss any of her films."
Cut to present.
Sridevi, who was India's first lady superstar, passed away on February 24, 2018. The cause of her death was a cardiac arrest.
Now, her elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor is one of the rising stars in Bollywood. On the other hand, Kareena will be next seen in Good Newzz with Akshay Kumar. She is in Amritsar, shooting for Advait Chandan’s Laal Singh Chaddha with Aamir Khan. Kareena will also be seen in Karan Johar’s epic historical drama Takht, alongside Ranveer Singh, Alia, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi and Anil Kapoor.
