Kareena Kapoor is known as one of the most glamorous and talented actors in Bollywood. She is also known in her family and by fans as Bebo. Everyone calls Kareena Kapoor Bebo much before the release of Bebo Main Bebo. The actress spilt the beans on the reasons behind the nicknames. She said, her father and mother wanted a funny name for both of them (Karisma and Kareena). So, they named us Lolo and Bebo and said the nicknames have no real meaning and it is just that it kind of rhymes.
This unorthodox name came from daddy Randhir Kapoor because he likes to call her daughter ‘Bebo, the tigress’. The word, which has no meaning is now a rage in Bollywood. Not only Kareena has a different, quirky title, but her older sister Karisma Kapoor was given a nickname as Lolo. Karishma said that her pet name was given by his father, Randhir Kapoor because her mother liked the Italian actress Gina Lollobrigida.
Here's a question we all have wondered...why is Kareena's nickname Bebo? pic.twitter.com/NaRZpYElvC— Kareena Kapoor Khan (@KareenaK_FC) October 4, 2016
The grandfather of actress, Raj Kapoor, first named her Siddhima. Fortunately, it did not last. The name Kareena is derived from Leo Tolstoy’s novel Anna Karenina, which her mother was reading while she was pregnant with her.
On the professional front, Kareena will be seen in her upcoming movies like Good News, alongside Akshay Kumar. The movie is scheduled to release on December 27. Angrezi Medium, Takht, Laal Singh Chaddha are a few other movies which are going to be released between 2019-2020.
