Her name was derived from the book Anna Karenina, which her mother read while she was pregnant with her. But her family and close friends call her Bebo.
She is Bollywood royalty and is the granddaughter of veteran actor Raj Kapoor and great-granddaughter of the legendary showman Prithviraj Kapoor.
Her first commercial success was the sleeper hit Mujhe Kuch Kehna in 2001 opposite Tusshar Kapoor. She stole the thunder from Jeetendra’s son.
She’s not a gadget person and considers her smartphone a slick innovation she happens to own.
It’s believed she turned vegetarian in 2006 just like her former boyfriend Shahid Kapoor. But she didn’t make the lifestyle change to impress her squeeze, but to fit into clothes.
In 2008, Kapoor began the size-zero trend in Bollywood. Even at her thinnest (48kilograms), she was not waif-like but showcased her new-found body in skimpy outfits in Tashan.
Kapoor credits yoga as her favourite fitness activity. According to her yoga instructor, she is a star pupil and can do 50 surya namaskars and hold complex poses for long than 30 seconds.
Her favourite cuisine is Italian and her favourite dish is sphagetti. A self-titled foodie, Kapoor believes in portion control and small meals throughout the day.
She believes that two actresses in the same league can never be best friends. Her pal is failed actress Amrita Arora.
She’s the only heroine who can boast of starring in four hits that have grossed over Rs1 billion each.
On October 27, 2011, Kapoor’s wax statue was unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Blackpool in the UK.
Kapoor’s favourite designer Manish Malhotra.
