Is Kareena Kapoor living off her past reputation as a Bollywood star? This is a question that is starting to circulate in some Bollywood entertainment conversations after a close scrutiny of her films over the past two years has shown that she has not produced films that merit such a title.
The Bollywood entertainment blog Masala.com noted how some of her recent career choices have proven to be very misguided as they have received much criticism and have not been very successful at the box office, a situation which has left Bollywood fans wondering if she needs a script reader (Masala.com - September 7)?
The attractive actress has become the 'queen of the incorrect rejection' in the view of some entertainment fans as she has rejected the starring roles in films such as "Chennai Express", "Ram-heela" and "Queen" to instead be part of film such as "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein", If one were to do the math it equates to a twenty-five percent success rate for a Bollywood actress who usually gets to look at the best scripts before any other actors and yet she chooses a script that results in less than satisfactory reviews from critics.
Some fans wonder if Kareena Kapoor has become too distracted with being a wife and trying to micromanage everything in her life to the point that it is impacting her ability to make good script choices? Her colleague Deepika Padukone, an actress whom she was ranked ahead of as a Bollywood actress two years ago employs a script reader to help her sift through the many scripts placed before her and this has resulted in her seemingly developing a 'Midas touch' as most of the projects she is part of seem to experience great success while Kareena Kapoor has had very little critical or commercial success in her recent projects.
Kareena Kapoor, an actress who looks like she needs to accept the reality that she cannot do everything and might need some assistance to make the best decisions for her career.
