Another Day Another Victim of Photoshop Anarchy: Bollywood’s Kareena Kapoor

A few months ago Fashionwidget reported that Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor had shot a sizzling item number for her upcoming film ‘Heroine’. Photos that floated out from behind-the-scenes showed a scantily clad Kapoor (wearing Manish Malholtra) proudly showing off her curvy figure which made it all the more shocking when the official posters were released this past weekend, with one of them showing the actress looking more like a rail-thin supermodel compared with what we’d previously seen. Gone were the curves, her cherubic face and full arms replaced by a too-thin-to-be-real waistline, suspicious looking bosom area, toned tummy, poreless skin and thinner arms. To call this an enforcement of an unfair ideal would be understating the obvious. To be fair, the movie which reportedly has received an “A” certificate (India’s answer to the NC-17 feature) is not marketed towards tweens and teens but that does not excuse this Photoshop fiasco.

Bollywood Fashion Update: Designer Manish Malhotra Styles Kareena Kapoor for ‘Halkat Jawani’

Bollywood Fashion Update: Designer Manish Malhotra Styles Kareena Kapoor for 'Halkat Jawani'

‘Halkat Jawani’ (Naughty Youth in Hindi) not to be confused with ‘Sheila ki Jawani (Sheila’s Youth) is a racy song and dance number that will reportedly appear in upcoming controversial Madhur film ‘Heroine’ starring Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal.

Kapoor has been quoted as saying this will be her raunchiest item song ever, though it hard to believe (from the looks of it) that this will top her turns in songs from her movies ‘Tashan’ or ‘Kambakht Ishq’ in which she appeared in bikinis among other things.

Also to be noted is her bearly there sari/saree which was shockingly designed by Manish Malhotra (I would have guessed Rocky S). If you asked me, the look seems to be inspired by Katrina Kaif’s ‘Chikni Chameli’ and ‘Sheila ki Jawani’ item songs in which the usually pale-skinned Kaif appeared super-tanned and scantily clad just like Kapoor.

Kareena Kapoor opts for a Manish Malhotra Ensemble for her Wax Statue Unveiling in the UK


Kareena Kapoor

After her rather bland working of a Dolce & Gabbana sequin dress on the red carpet at the premiere of her new film Ra.One, Kareena Kapoor turned it up a notch today at the launch of her Madame Tussaud’s wax statue. She successfully went the traditional route by wearing a maroon and beige embellished saree designed by Indian fashion designer Manish Malhotra which looked more flattering on her and in which she looked more comfortable and at ease compared to the D&G. Well done Kareena!

Kareena Kapoor in Dolce & Gabbana at the Ra.One Premiere in London (Fashion Query)


Kareena Kapoor in D&G

Pros: Flawless Makeup. Clear Skin, Great Figure and the dress accentuates that.

Cons: The dress makes her look matronly. She should have picked something more fun or perhaps stuck with something traditional like an anarkali or a saree. Something bright, come on Kareena even the Queen is a fan of bright colours. Another distraction is that this D&G gown has been worn by too many fashionistas before her and better.

A premiere at the o2 arena in London is considered a big deal. The international media are guaranteed to be there, the red carpet will be grand and the world will be watching. I’m not sure but I am willing to guess that this event marks Kareena Kapoor biggest movie premiere outside of India. As far as I know, she has never been to Cannes (as an actress anyway), she has never escorted any of her films to an international film festival (unlike some of her fellow Bollywood actresses who happen to be seasoned international event veterans) like Aishwarya Rai, Bipasha Basu, Shilpa Shetty or Preity Zinta and I’m quite certain that she has never been to the Oscars or the Golden Globes. For all the afore-mentioned reasons, I am willing to cut her some slack for the choice of attire she decided on for the Ra.One premiere.

The fact that she is a novice on the international event circuit will not stop me from asking why she opted for such a matronly look that too with a dress that has been worn so many times (and possibly better) by others and it won’t stop me from pointing them out either. So here goes nothing…

Perhaps Kareena should take notes on how to appear A+ at an international event from Shilpa Shetty (pictured below), who wore a similar D&G gown to the IIFAs in Canada earlier in the year.

Let’s hope Kareena dresses better to the unveiling of her wax statue at Madame Tussaud’s in Blackpool on Thursday (October 27th) stay tuned.
