It was rumored that Kareena used to have an attitude problem according to many of her co-stars during the start of her career. Bipasha Basu did not get along with her in ‘Ajnabee’ and Mallika Sherawat found Kareena cold, giving the busty actress cold shoulder while shooting for ‘Jeena Sirf Mere Liya’.
Tabloids had a field day on Kapoor family when Kareena did not attend her cousin`s (Riddhima Kapoor) wedding with Bharat Sawhney that took place in Bombay on January 25, 2006. Also absent was her sister, Karisma, and mom, Babita.
Gossip columnists have linked Kareena to a number of her co-stars but she has strongly denied all these rumors. In 2004, she began dating actor Shahid Kapoor, the son of veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor. While dating, their relationship was often reported in the media, and was once in the center of a scandal when onlookers with mobile phone cameras filmed them kissing and released it to the media. The couple separated three years later while filming ‘Jab We Met’ (2007).
Though the media initially perceived it as a publicity stunt for the film, it was later confirmed that the couple had indeed broken up.
