She hails from the first family of Hindi cinema. Kareena Kapoor is the great granddaughter of Prithviraj Kapoor, granddaughter of Raj Kapoor, daughter of Randhir Kapoor and Babita. She is also Karisma Kapoor's younger sister.

Was she destined to act? (Just a rhetorical question!)

Did you know that Kareena was signed on first for Rakesh Roshan's Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai opposite Hrithik Roshan and not J P Dutta's Refugee?

She however did not act in the film thanks to differences between mother Babita and Rakesh Roshan.

Thus began an unconventional debut in Refugee opposite Abhishek Bachchan. The film flopped. The raves never stopped -- for both Abhishek and Kareena's performance. She then scored in Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai opposite Tusshar Kapoor.

Her career was on a roll. She appeared as the exotic Kaurwaki in Asoka, the fashionable Poo in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. She began to call herself a spontaneous performer.

None of her recent films have done well at the BO, even the candyfloss Mujhse Dosti Karoge, despite her alleged link-up with Hrithik Roshan. Kareena has also run the risk of appearing the smug, over-confident, stylish miss in one too many film.

Perhaps Jeena Sirf Merre Liye that releases Friday will bring good luck -- to her as a performer and at the marquee.

For now, Kareena Kapoor is our star of the week!
