Kareena Kapoor Khan is possibly in her best phase of life. She is happily married, her films are working well and very soon, she would be a proud mother. In short, all is well!
Being a film star by default, she has always been in limelight. And very often, fame puts you in a distressing situation because your every life decision is unapologetically questioned. But surely Kareena knows how to deal with it. That too, boldly.
In a candid chat with ‘The Times Of India’, she talks about motherhood, films and life after marriage:
She is still reading scripts:
“I am always going to work and take my holidays, too. So, that is not going to change. Once I get into a routine with the baby, only then will I know how I am feeling. Right now, I am reading a script which is great, and people want to lock the post-delivery dates. It all feels the same.”
Marriage didn’t affect her career:
“People had said that I would run out of work after marriage, but interestingly, I did more work. Saif always tells me, ‘See, you worked more after marriage, and you are going to do the same after the baby’.”
Motherhood is a natural thing:
“I feel absolutely normal. In fact, more than me, it’s the people around me who have changed. Isn’t motherhood the most normal thing to happen to any woman? I don’t understand why people are making such a big deal about it. Everyone keeps asking me how I am prepping for it.I think the only prep I am doing is that I’m not listening to 500 people, because everyone has their views and take on motherhood.”
She is ambitious but keeps it to herself:
“These highs and lows have never really killed my passion or ambition. I am not aggressive in my PR, so people mistake it as not being ambitious. But not many know that I am very ambitious, I just don’t show it.Like always, I am doing my own thing (laughs). I don’t want to be riddled with preconceived notions. That’s the best advice I have given myself.”
