Being a mother doesn't mean you're home-bound: Kareena Kapoor Khan

Ians February 13, 2017

MUMBAI: Bollywood beauty Kareena Kapoor Khan will be bouncing back to face the cameras for Veere Di Wedding this April, just about four months after giving birth to her first-born Taimur. The actor, however, says she can easily see herself balancing work and family as women are masters at multi-tasking.

My son is the most gorgeous man, says Kareena Kapoor Khan

"I have always balanced my work and my marriage. People thought that I wouldn't and I did. I am going to continue to do that. I think women know how to multi-task,” said Kareena, when asked how she plans to act and look after Taimur. "Today, you see working women out there. If you have a family, if you have a child... It doesn't mean you are home-bound. Of course, there is time for that and work."

The 36-year-old – who maintained her celebrity lifestyle while pregnant even – is loving this phase of her life. "I am taking it each day as it comes. I think it's the most beautiful phase of my life," shared Kareena. Having said that, the Bodyguard star agrees that parenthood comes with a lot of responsibility. "Both Saif and I are ready for this kind of responsibility," she added.

Whether it was during her pregnancy or after, Kareena didn't keep away from limelight. She even walked the ramp with her baby bump. Later on, her post-pregnancy frame didn't keep her from taking the ramp again. "It's not about proving a point," she explained. "It was just something I wanted to do. It was something I believed in… that I have nothing to hide. When I got married, it was the most beautiful phase. Pregnancy was the most normal thing that was going to happen and giving birth to a child is as normal as ever.”

Kareena – daughter of veteran actor Randhir Kapoor and Babita – says she doesn't want people to look at what she did as anything different. “The only thing different is that we are just happy, we have an addition in our home," she said.
