 Early Career & Breakthrough
Initially, Kapoor was scheduled to make her debut with Rakesh Roshan’s, ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’, opposite Hritik Roshan. However, she opted out after sometime and made her debut in J. P Dutta’s ‘Refugee’, opposite Abhishek Bacchan, released in 2000. Her performance in the film was highly acclaimed and she went on to win the Fimfare Best Female Debut Award. Following this, Kareena did ‘Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai’ opposite Tusshar Kapoor in 2001, which received immense success at the box - office.                                                                 Her next films ‘Yaadein’ and ‘Ajnabee’ didn’t do well at the box office. Later that year, she appeared in Santosh Sivan’s ‘Asoka’, a period epic, which received moderate success. Her performance received mixed reactions from critics, giving her a nomination for Best Actress at the Filmfare Awards. Her last release in 2001 was Karan Johar’s ‘Kabhi Khushi KabhieGham’, which was a blockbuster hit at the box office. For this, she earned a nomination for Filmfare Best Supporting Actress.
 In the years 2002 and 2003, Kareena’s acting career experienced a downslide. She gave six films during this period, Mujhse Dosti Karoge! and Jeena Sirf Merre Liye in 2002, and Talaash: The Hunt Begins..., Khushi, Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon and J.P. Dutta’s war epic LOC Kargil in 2003. All these films turned out to be commercially unsuccessful in India. With this, the acting potential of the actress was being questioned, leading to negatives reviews.     Comeback
The year 2004 arrived with new hopes for Kareena. The first film this year was Sudhir Mishra’s ‘Chameli’, opposite Rahul Bose. The film bagged positive reviews and Kapoor’s performance won her the Filmfare Special Performance Award.  After this, she was seen in Govind Nihalani's critically acclaimed ‘Dev’. For this, she earned a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance, as well as nominations for Best Actress at various award ceremonies.

                            The next film on the block was ‘Fida’, in which Kareena was seen in a negative role for the first time. Though the film didn’t do well at the box office, the actress was acclaimed for her performance. The subsequent films that year were Abbas-Mustan's moderately successful thriller, ‘Aitraaz’ and Priyadarshan's comedy Hulchul, which was a huge hit. In 2005, Kareena appeared in Dharmesh Darshan’s ‘Bewafa’, which did not do any good for the actress. Later that year, Priyadarshan’s ‘Kyon Ki’ was released.

The film as well as her performance was well received by the critics. After this came ‘Dosti: Friends Forever’, which didn’t do good business in India. In 2006, she played lead roles in ‘36 China Town’ and ‘Chup Chup Ke’, which received moderate success. Her next big hit was Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Omkara’, in which her performance was deemed highly commendable. This bagged her fourth Filmfare Award and first Star Screen Award.

This was followed by Vijay Krishna Acharya's action-thriller ‘Tashan’. Though this film marked her comeback to the Yash Raj banner, it failed to create any magic at the box - office.
