Actress Kareena Kapoor, now pregnant with her first child, has said that she will not hide her baby bump in the films she is shooting.
The actress, married to actor Saif Ali Khan, told NDTV: “Whichever role I do, I am not going to camouflage it on screen. I am proud of this phase (being pregnant) that I am in and there is nothing to hide about it. Whichever film I choose to do you will see me the way I am. Right now, I am working on dates so it all depends on how I feel.”
Kapoor, who said her pregnancy would not affect her work or her career, will soon shoot for ‘Veere Di Wedding’, a romantic comedy and gal-pal movie by director Shashanka Ghosh. Her three co-stars are Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania.
In a film with four heroines, perhaps her baby bump will be written into the script. If that cannot happen, perhaps Kapoor will be in the same position as Konkona Sen Sharma who, according to Rediff.com, wailed while pregnant that she missed acting, “but who will cast me with the big belly?”
If she’s lucky, though, she may be in the same position as Juhi Chawla who was pregnant with her second child while she played a seven-months pregnant mother in Jhankaar Beats, again according to Rediff.com.
