Has Kareen Kapoor lost her title as the ‘Queen of Bollywood’?

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Cameron Diaz – both of these ladies have done some amazing work in their careers, both critically and commercially. Each of them have played at least one character for which they will be remembered forever. Kareena’s role in ‘Jab We Met’ and Cameron’s in “There’s Something About Mary” are two such roles.

While both of them have crossed their prime age, Cameron’s popularity hasn’t decreased one bit while Kareena has lost her “reigning queen of B-Town” title to the fresh faces like Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, and Alia Bhatt.  Bollywood actresses lose fame after they reach their prime age while on the other hand Hollywood actresses like Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet and Sandra Bullock are still starring in various Hollywood blockbusters.
