London: Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor was honoured in the House of Commons here by an Asian ethnic weekly for her contribution to the global entertainment industry.

Leading NRI MP Rt Hon Keith Vaz, Chairman of Britain`s Home Affairs Committee, presented a framed golden coloured plaque to the 33-year old actress last night.

Others who were honoured by the Asian Sunday Newspaper are singer Kimberley Walsh and magician Dynamo (Aka Steven Frayne) for their contributions to the global entertainment industry.
Kareena has acted in several blockbuster films including `Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham`, `Omkara`, `Jab We Met`, `3 Idiots`, `Golmaal 3` and `Bodyguard`.

While receiving the award, Kareena said, "UK has been one of my most favoured destinations. There has always been special relation between India and the UK and over the years the bond has become stronger."

She recalled that her great grandmother was British and her father-in-law, late Nawab of Pataudi, captained Oxford cricket team.

"England has been kind to me," she stated.

Speaking on the occasion, Keith Vaz complimented Fatima Patel, Managing Director of I&E Media, publisher of Asian Sunday newspaper for her decision to bring out the London edition of the newspaper next month.
