Beginning of career 2000-2003
Kareena Kapoor began in 2000 in the film Refugee, alongside Abhishek Bachchan. The film was a success and Kareena Kapoor won the Filmfare Award for the best female hope for his performance. The end of 2000, she auditioned for the film Devdas of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Ultimately, the Director would rather entrust the role to be Aishwarya Rai but offers Kareena a collaboration in a future film. She then turns in Asoka, which, despite the presence of Shahrukh Khan, is not a great success. Light clothing she wears in Asoka are feeling and the movie poster is censured in Bengal.
It is shortly after the poster of one of the Indian films in recent years, Mr. Khushi part song (released in France under the title The Indian family). The couple it forms on-screen with Hrithik Roshan is very credible, but the film’s success is due to the presence of Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Kajol. Hrithik and Kareena look again together in Mujhse Dosti Karoge!, a popular film that meets only a slim critical success. In 2002, despite a subdued start, Kareena Kapoor is a recognized actress. She took the opportunity to claim of high fees, which earned him to be excluded from the distribution of Kal Ho Naa Ho (New York Masala) for the benefit of Preity Zinta. Movies in which she then turn go relatively unnoticed, except for LOC Kargil, a film of war to the impressive distribution.
