Amongst all the characters played by Kareena Kapoor Khan, her character of 'Poo' in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham had garnered her unprecedented popularity. The character is still alive in our memories and every girl has once dreamt of dancing on song, It's raining men, hallelujah! 'Poo' actually brought fashion into our lives. Kareena had played the character of a young, flamboyant NRI, who was unapologetic and believed in self-love when she was still new in the industry. Who knew that it will turn out to be an iconic character?
In an interview with Anupama Chopra, Kareena Kapoor Khan had talked about her iconic character of 'Poo' and had recalled how every time she walked on the streets of London people called her 'Poo'. She had further jokingly said that now she does not want her son, Taimur Ali Khan to feel awkward about people calling his mother 'Poo' in London.
Kareena had also talked about how petrified she was before the release of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham as in those days, actresses used to do emotional characters. However, her character had become a cult later. She had further added that even if it is amongst one of her iconic characters, she cannot imagine herself doing it again. She had further revealed that it was she and Karan, who had complete faith in the character as Karan was the one, who had developed the character of 'Poo'. From designing the wardrobe to writing the dialogues, Karan had also enacted every dialogue and shot to Kareena that resulted in the immense success of her character.

In a conversation with BBC Asian Network, Kareena had talked about how immature she was when she had entered Bollywood and how her perspective towards things have changed with time. She had said, “It makes me feel like, "what was I thinking?" Because so much has changed in the last two decades and I have changed as a person. My entire approach to life and thinking has changed. I think when I was 17, you’re immature, you kind of think like you own the world. Of course, a 17-year-old should think that, as that is the age to think that and learn from mistakes. I'm happy to know I have nothing to regret, but I have learnt from my mistakes.”
Kareena Kapoor Khan had become a proud mommy on December 20, 2016, when she had given birth to Taimur Ali Khan. In an interview with the Filmfare magazine, Kareena had talked about how she had handled the pressure of motherhood and had said, "We women somehow know how to multitask. I’m enjoying every minute of it. I’m balancing it well. My time with my child is my time. I don’t need to flaunt it on Instagram. I don’t need to flaunt it in front of the media. Like I don’t need to carry my child at the airport to prove how much I love him. My husband too believes it’s not needed. By carrying the child in my arms I don’t need to prove that I’m a hands-on mother. Even if I have two hours with Saif, Taimur and myself in the bedroom, it’s the quality of time and wanting to be together that matters, rather than the quantity of time we spend. I come from that school of parenting." (Recommended Read: Aishwarya Rai Revealed Who Apologises First After Little Fights With Hubby, Abhishek [Video])
