Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham was the instant. The movie was also a major commercial success, both domestically and internationally, with a lifetime gross of ₹1.36 billion ($29 million) at the worldwide box office, becoming one of the highest-grossing Indian films. Apart from its impressive box office collection, there’s something more that was a super hit, Kareena Kapoor’s character, Poo. With the movie, Pooja aka Poo also becomes fans’ favourite.
Even after 21 years of the film’s release, it is one of the most memorable and loved roles in the actress’s career. However, recently, Kareena opened up on the iconic character Poo having her own movie. The Bollywood actress said, “Oh God! Like I think now this character is so relevant to this generation more than it was then.” Kareena added, “I think for the way she is, the way she talks, the kind of millennial Gen-Z kinda words that she uses connect somehow.”
The actress further added, “So, I think it is because of that more than anything else. Let’s see a film someday, who knows.” Alongside Kareena Kapoor, the Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’s ensemble cast also includes Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, and Hrithik Roshan in the lead. In the other news, Kareena Kapoor and Amir Khan’s latest film Laal Singh Chaddha recently hit the theatres.
However, the movie has got mixed reviews with many people protesting against the film. Meanwhile, the lead actress Kareena Kapoor recently requested the audience not to boycott her film. In a recent interview with Siddharth Kanan, the actress opened up about her comment and said, “I think it’s only a section of people that are trolling. But genuinely, I think that the love the film is getting is very different. These are just a section of people who are probably on your social media, which is probably like 1%.”
The actress further added, “But the fact is that they shouldn’t boycott this film, it’s such a beautiful film. And I want people to see me and Aamir (Khan) on screen. It’s been three years, we’ve waited so long. So, please don’t boycott this film, because it’s actually like boycotting good cinema. And people have worked so hard on it; we’ve had 250 people work on this film for two-and-a-half years.”
