Kareena was born during the Ganapati Festival and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, who is her cousin and the daughter of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu is 6 days elder than her. Raj Kapoor named his two grand daughters as Riddhima and Siddhima. Riddhi and Siddhi are the names of the two wives of Lord Ganapati and Raj Kapoor was very much inspired by that.

After some time, Kareena’s mother and actress Babita also changed her daughter’s name from Siddhima to Kareena. As per reports, Babita used to read Leo Tolstoy’s book Anna Karenina while she was carrying Kareena Kapoor.
