Kareena Kapoor Khan fiercely shuns haters who mom-shamed her

Published: July 17, 2017


Be it body shaming or being told to adhere to predefined gender roles, women are always a victim to society’s censure across the board, and Bollywood celebs aren’t spared from this public scrutiny either.

I don’t want to miss out a single moment of Taimur’s childhood: Kareena Kapoor Khan

Kareena Kapoor Khan, who had recently been very public about her gymming and health-care routine after giving birth to son Taimour Ali Khan, received hate for leaving her son while she worked out and was thus dubbed as a ‘bad mother’.

“Of course she is a bad mother because soon after delivery she started working instead of taking care of her new born” read a comment.

“She should spend more time with her own baby” stated another.

But this Bollywood diva refuses to succumb to undue societal pressures. She is fierce and assertive and sets her own standards each time.

On being inquired about being the pioneer of size zero in Bollywood and then the pressure of losing the excess pounds and filling her own shoes post delivery, Kareena wittingly commented, ” But gaining a few pounds during pregnancy is the most normal thing… I never felt any pressure. If I am going to the gym, it’s to feel good and feel happy and not get to size zero.”

She took the opportunity to shun the hateful comments dubbing her a bad mother and went on to add.

“So many people and girls went like, ‘Why does she have to leave her baby and go to the gym?’ I read these comments and I feel that’s the most stupid thing ever because having a child doesn’t mean you can’t feel good.”

Here’s how Kareena Kapoor is helping Soha Ali Khan during her pregnancy

“I am one of the most chilled out relaxed girls. I don’t listen or take any pressure. I do what I think is right,” resonating with a popular quote by her character ‘Geet’ in Jab We Met  “Main Apni Favourite Hoon”

    You cannot please everyone. She should do what she feels is right and the people should mind their own business instead of being judgemental.Recommend

    I think those people don’t have a good hobby instead they became an unnecessary critic. A mother (especially a new mom) goes through a lot of mental, emotional and physical change. What is wrong trying to stay fit. 1 hour in the gym shouldn’t and wouldn’t harm anybody. Ask those women who can only dream to have only few minutes of peace after becoming a full-time house wife and a mother.Recommend
