Kangana, 29, made a mark in the industry with her critically-acclaimed performances be it her double role of a Harayanvi athlete and an ambitious wife in 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' or a girl ditched by her fiance at the aisle in 'Queen'.
"There are so many people in the industry who inspire me... Kangana inspires me. She's doing fabulous," Kareena said during a session at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit here.
Having born to Bollywood's first family, Kareena said she always dreamt of becoming an actress.
"I always wanted to be an actress and I realised it when I was very young. I used to look at Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan when I was young... I used to say one day I will work with them. My sister Karisma (Kapoor) used to say get out of here and go to your school," she said.
Seeing her inclination towards films, her parents – Randhir Kapoor and Babita -- even sent her to a boarding school in Dehradun.
Very few are aware that Kareena's first acting assignment was a play "Dulari Bai" where she portrayed the role of a 16-year-old boy.
