In case—like me—you’re wondering about this oddly named film, Ki & Ka, it has nothing to do with the Kapoor surname both actors share. Ki is the end of lad-ki and Ka is the end of lad-ka…hmmm! So apparently the movie is all about love sans gender discrimination. The size XXL hero Arjun Kapoor is spotted romancing the once-upon-a-time size zero diva Kareena Kapoor Khan.  The film also features another classy jodi, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan. The story is about two people with distinct ideologies; and touches on the issue of gender equality. Arjun wants to be the perfect house husband while Kareena is an ambitious, career oriented girl.

Inspired by women who toil all day at the office like Kareena, we decided to draw up a list of thing every working gal needs in her office kit. Tight deadlines, angry bosses and impatient co-workers can make an eight hour workday feel like an 18 hour burnout. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look and feel as fresh as a daisy all day, everyday. And you will, with these office-friendly makeup and hair essentials.
