Acting has made 25-year-old English beauty Cara Delevingne understand herself better. She believes her career as a model provided her with ways to avoid her problems but acting helped her deal with them. “Modelling came at a time in my life where I wanted to please people. I was just doing things to run away from my own problems. I wasn’t dealing with things that were going on emotionally. That’s why I ended up being unhappy,” the model and actress has told Australia’s Stellar Magazine. “Being an actor helped me reflect on my own emotions, be able to express them more, be in the moment.”

♦ Geet’s (Kareena Kapoor) first appearance. The train is pulling out of the station, but we don’t see Geet… we only hear her as she scolds the two boys helping her load her luggage on to the train. As the train gathers speed, they finally manage to get both her and her luggage in. And we see Geet for the first time — fresh-faced and smiling. And then she starts talking. “Aaj tak life mein ek train nahin chhuti meri. Thank you Babaji, mera record tootne se bachane ke liye,” she smiles before telling one of the boys, clearly smitten by her, “Ab toh mera haath chhod do, itni bhi sundar nahin hoon main!” And you know instantly that you will love Geet.... Since then, every ‘bubbly’ and vivacious Bolly heroine has been a version of Geet.
Ten years after introducing us to the introvert Aditya Kashyap, stuck in an unsavoury personal pickle, and the bubbly, high-spirited Geet Dhillon, director Imtiaz Ali reveals that he would have loved to make some changes to Jab We Met (October 2007).
