Though Kareena Kapoor turns 30 today, she's also hit the 40 mark as far as her career goes. Her latest release We Are Family brought her 10 short of a half century.
In the decade that she's been in Bollywood, Bebo has done everything to stay ahead of the competition - courting the media, doing a myriad roles, creating the image in everyone's minds that she is the one to come to if you want talent, glamour and selling power.
And the fact that she has had more duds than hits ('I would not have been what I am if not for my flops,' she once said), and yet manages to be one of the most sought after heroines around is what made us profile her career on her big day.
