As Kareena Kapoor turns another year older today, we take a look at some of her most memorable roles

Along with the release of 'Heroine', Kareena Kapoor also celebrates her 32nd birthday today. We look back at Bebo's best performances over the years.


Refugee: Kareena's debut flick, which was set in newly-partitioned India, saw her playing lover to a 'refugee'. Despite it being her first film, Kareena managed to put up a convincing performance


Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai: As the bubbly character of Pooja Saxena, Kareena played her part in making this Satish Kaushik flick a surprise hit


Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham: Depicting the stylised, skimpily-dressed Poo, she earned bouquets as well as brickbats for her role, but Bebo's performance was impactful nonetheless


Chameli: With this film, Kareena successfully wooed the critics, playing a prostitute, who becomes a street-smart woman following life's tough experiences


Dev: Kareena went deglam for the role of Aaliya in this film. Her character of a woman who stands up for the truth amidst trying circumstances won her a critics award


Asoka: Kareena's dramatic look as Princess Kaurwaki in Asoka is still considered one of her best till date


Omkara: In this adaptation of Shakespeare's Othello, Kareena plays Dolly Mishra -- an innocent woman in love with Omi (Ajay Devgn) -- who meets with a tragic end for no fault of hers. Bebo held her own against talents like Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Konkona Sen Sharma


Jab We Met: Kareena's most successful film till date, the actress was in top form as Geet Dhillon, the ultra-talkative female, who believes in enjoying every moment of life. Her chemistry with ex-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor was well-appreciated


3 Idiots: She wasn't one of the idiots in the film, but as Pia Sahastrabudhhe, the daughter of the eccentric college dean Viru Sahastrabudhhe, Kareena got enough scope to make an impact in the emotional scenes


Golmaal 3: The film wasn't high on content, but Kareena's tomboyish avatar was one of the reasons why Rohit Shetty's third instalment of the Golmaal series worked


Bodyguard: An out and out Salman film, Bebo manages to pitch in a credible performance as a woman who falls in love with her bodyguard
