You know the real Kareena Kapoor, don’t you? The one, who at the beginning of her career, used to just talk nonsense non-stop. That was before she met Veg Shahid. Then after Shahid, she met supposedly-intellect Saif. We all thought the old Kareena matured and become a better human being. But it seems all was a facade because being pregnant is making Kareena say some of the weirdest things ever! First of all, she’s not really working on any film now. The film she was supposedly doing with Sonam Kapoor got postponed to next year because no the insurance company wasn’t going to cover a pregnant actress in the film. So, they had no choice, but to wait. So, Kareena choose to take the time and do a couple of photoshoots and talk about what it’s like being pregnant. She doesn’t really sound humble at all and makes it sound like she’s the first actress out there in Bollywood, who’s not hiding while being pregnant. Someone please show her the pregnant pictures of Aishwarya Rai to bring her back to earth? At this rate, it seems that even while she’s giving birth, Kareena will be giving interviews at the same time. To be honest, she must be scared on what awaits her after she’s had her baby. It was hard enough for her to portray a sexy or desirable image after she got married, so she definitely must be wondering on what’s going to happen, since she’s pretty much the main breadwinner of her family. Here’s presenting the old Kareena Kapoor back in her own words.
Kareena Kapoor Interview – The Pregnant Edition
Kareena Kapoor on owning her pregnancy
I believe there’s a lot of respect and understanding between me and my family, the media, industry friends or even the audience, because I’ve kind of owned the pregnancy.
Kareena on her size zero era
“It was a different era. Before that, the voluptuous heroine is all we had. It was OK if you were a little tubby in a bikini. I took on the Size Zero challenge that Aditya Chopra threw at me for a movie role. It worked, and every girl in a sari then wanted to be a leggy lass and have six-pack abs. Today, actresses are more into fitness than ever. Every heroine is running to the gym, every actress wants a six-pack. But it’s finding your own balance that’s important. Like, I think Karisma (Kapoor) is very fit. Having said that, I’d love to be Size Zero again. It’ll be exciting.
Kareena on being the first Bollywood actress to flaunt her pregnancy
Why should a woman be embarrassed about her body when she’s pregnant? This is such a joyous experience; I’m loving the idea of sharing this pregnancy through this Brunch cover shoot with my fans and everyone who loves me. I don’t see any reason to hide. If you’ve put on a bit of weight on your face, your arms etc when you’re pregnant, it’s okay. It’s the only time you can proudly flaunt the extra kilos and say ‘I’m a woman, and this is what God has made, and it’s such a beautiful thing…’ I’m not sure why no Bollywood actress has done this before!
Kareena on her pregnancy journey
My pregnancy has been such a fun journey. I feel quite glamorous. I’ve been dressing up, going out, shooting, being normal. Saif keeps telling me I’ve never looked as beautiful. And that’s all any wife needs to hear, isn’t it?
Kareena on Saif and her as parents
Saif is very spoiled, and he spoils me a lot too. But with his children, he’s very grounded. Suddenly, he is all stable-headed and becomes another person. It’s quite amazing.
Kareena on getting back to her old way after giving birth
To be honest, I’m a little less nervous about the rest of my pregnancy as I am about getting back into shape. After all, I have the Size Zero tag to live up to…
Kareena on working during and after the pregnancy
I’ve been keeping myself so busy during this pregnancy that Saif always says ‘You’ll have this baby in Mehboob Studios!’ My friends are constantly teasing me and telling me to calm down and do less. But knowing me, don’t be surprised if I head straight from the hospital to a shoot. I think I’ll definitely be fully back to work one month after my baby is born.
Kareena on what her baby’s name will be
We haven’t thought of a name for our baby yet. Saif is a historian and would want a traditional old school name.
Kareena on her and Saif’s qualities she would not want the child to have
What should not get from me? Honestly, I don’t think I have any negative qualities in me. And Saif, I think ya. Only bechara thing that he does is he sleeps too much. He can be like Kumbhkaran. He can just sleep for like 18 hours a day and not wake up. It’s very disturbing. I think it’s such a waste of time and I’ve become like this morning person and he’s sleeping like till the afternoon, that’s a bit of a pain.
