Kareena is also the covergirl of Maxim India's September 2012 issue. She looks hot and sensual in a body-hugging top and a lace skirt.

The actress, who is known for her well-toned figure, with the title bestowed on her.

"It is always wonderful to feel sexy and hot. And when it comes from Maxim, which truly recognises hotness in a woman, then it is even better," Times of India quoted her as saying.

"Hotness is about how a woman carries herself. It is not just about a thin waist and long legs. It is about the entire package. I am glad that you guys find me hot and I definitely take it as a big compliment," she added.

Well, it looks like September month belongs to Kareena, as her much-hyped film "Heroine" by Madhur Bhandarkar, is also set for release on her birthday September 21.
