After stating that “I am pregnant and not a Corpse, ” Kareena Kapoor seems to have taken it upon herself to re-write some rules about pregnancy. The actress has made it very clear through her interviews and pictures on social networking sites that she is pregnant but that will not stop her from working, nor will she shy away from the public eye and hide behind baggy clothes feeling ashamed of her bump.
Let’s take a look at five appearances of Kareena Kapoor Khan which makes us take a bow:
She brought the curtains down in style at the Lakme Fashion Week, as she turned show stopper for designer Sabyasachi, baby bump and all! She looked resplendent, broke all stereotypes and taboos and glowed in confidence winning every heart in the audience. In the press meet after the show NDTv quoted Kareena stating that “Everyone made this edition so special for me. For me, it is quite an emotional moment as this was the first time we (she and her future child) took the ramp together. It was a moment to cherish,” the actress told reporters at the show conference after finale show.
She also said that she was not scared to walk the runway and her pregnancy can never be hindrance in anything. ”I was happy and confident. Pregnant woman can walk and fly and for me it’s absolutely normal. When it comes to my work, acting is my passion and I will work till I die. As long as I am doing what I love, I am going to do that,”
When Saif Ali Khan announced the news that he and Kareena were on their way to becoming parents in December, Bebo was spotted at the airport, hand-in-hand with her husband, flaunting a bump in a light weighted cotton kurta and palazzo pants.
As the news of her pregnancy spread there were reports from the media which claimed that Kareena might be taking a maternity break from her career. The news particularly targeted her movie with Rhea Kapoor, “Veere Di Wedding”, however the production house, the co star Sonam Kapoor and Kareena herself clarified that pregnancy shall not mean no work for her. In a report by Indiantribune.com it says that Sonam also lashed out against those conservative people who think that pregnant women cannot do any work.
We loved the way Kareena kapoor khan silenced her critics when in a event for B-Blunt she gracefully flaunted her bump and her pregnancy glow for the media in a cute polka dotted dress. She looked as stylish as ever and as confident as a woman should be about being a proud new mom to be.
In a most recent incident the press went ga-ga over the actress when they saw her reporting to work for her films and salon appointments, she very boldly stated “Anybody who is bothered shouldn’t work with me… but my work goes on as is, like always. Stop making it a national casualty,” she told Hindustan Times.
We doff our hats to Kareena. If one wants to be a role model, this is sure a good way to do it!
