One of the most sought after actresses in today’s times, Kareena Kapoor has played some exceptionally relatable characters in her filmy career. However, there have been instances when we were forced to wonder as to why an actress of her calibre would say ‘yes’ to such roles. As the beautiful actress turns 35 today, here’s a list of such characters, which she shouldn’t have played, so that she doesn’t commit the blunders again.

Pooja in ‘Jeena Sirf Mere Liye’:
The pair of Tusshar Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor worked well in 2001’s ‘Mujhe Kuchh Kahna Hai’, so the makers thought of utilising it to the fullest. Hence, ‘Jeena Sirf Mere Liye’ came into existence. And only because of this, for we were left searching for a story, a plot or some depth in the characters. And we weren’t able to find any.

After the ‘Pooja’s in ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ and ‘Mujhe Kuchh Kahna Hai’, this Pooja actually faltered.

Tina in ‘Talaash: The Hunt Begins’:
The ‘Talaash’ continues to find reason as to why Kareena chose to do such a formulaic movie.

Khushi in and as ‘Khushi’:
The Khushi in ‘Khushi’ was all the reason behind the non-Khushi that prevailed after the movie’s release. Though Kareena was good in the movie – Too chirpy, too funny, too fun-loving and too convoluted – just as what was expected of her in the long three hours of lame fun, she could have chosen the role wisely.

Sanjana in ‘Main Prem Ki Deewaani Hoon’:
This movie can seriously make you doubt Kareena’s much-acclaimed acting repertoire. She, and ably joined by Hrithik Roshan, has over-acted in the movie for a character which actually didn’t require much of that.

But then, as filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya likes the Great Indian Wedding so much, he might as well have loved the much archaic ‘papa ki pari’ doing all the over-acting by herself.

Priya in ’36 China Town’:
Kareena’s partnership with her then boyfriend Shahid Kapoor didn’t work in this movie, mostly because the movie hadn’t called for that. A total chaos where nobody knew where to step or go, including a young couple, another couple that involved a dancer, a dancer, a singer and few wannabes.

Pooja in ‘Tashan’:
Size zero, figure-wise, doesn’t mean a zero in talents too, but this movie proved to be an exception.

Pointless, and ironically not even blunt, the movie made a mockery of many a thing. Though it helped Kareena find Saif Ali Khan as her soulmate, we don’t think that apart from that ‘Tashan’ was of any good.

Priya in ‘Milenge Milenge’:
The movie got delayed by some 6-7 years and that gives reason enough to believe why it must have faltered.

Simrita Rai/Bebo in ‘Kambakkht Ishq’:
One sentence that comes into mind after watching the movie is, “Why?”

‘Kambakkht Ishq’ was about gender quarrels, and Bebo! So, while ‘Bebo Main Bebo’ does suit the proceedings of the movie, we fail to understand the mindless-caper the movie is.

While Akshay Kumar is the king of crazy humour, Kareena is not. He could carry this off, she could not. And she shouldn’t have.

Heroine (Mahi Arora, to be precise) in and as ‘Heroine’:
While the movie looked brilliant on papers, it left the zing back in the reel as soon as it got aired in theatres. Madhur Bhandarkar had a genie in hand, but then it failed to take off. Kareena wanted to take home a National Award with this movie, but guess, she should have understood that, after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan backing off at the eleventh hour and other issues that were marring it, the movie is jinxed.

Dia Sharma in ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’:
We had to search for the details of the movie, inlcuding the names of characters and storyline. And that makes for all reasons as to why Kareena should have skipped this project.

Of course! A Dharma project looks interesting on papers, but Dia could have been anyone else and yet, Kareena’s career could have grown. And she left Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Ram-Leela’ for this movie is all the more shocking.
