New Delhi: Kareena Kapoor has long been admired for her talent and her style. Now 36, Kareena is currently six months pregnant with her first baby and not only does she look like a million bucks (more about that later), it's what she's said about her pregnancy that's making all the right noises.
- Kareena's words of wisdom are really worth your time
- She married actor Saif Ali Khan in 2012
- The couple are expecting their first child in December
Now, Kareena says she's been like this always but we can't help but notice that Ms Khan is letting drop some precious pearls of wisdom lately. For her birthday today, we compiled the best of Kareena's quotes from the past few months:
Pregnancy Not Equal to National Casualty. Word.
#1. "I'm pregnant, not a corpse. Stop making it a national casualty"
#2. "Don't look at pregnancy as some sort of disease. It's the most beautiful phenomenon that can happen to a woman"
#3. "There's nothing wrong with being pregnant. In fact, it's a joy"
The Feminist Bollywood Needs
#4. "What difference does it make," Kareena said when asked about the baby's gender
#5. "I am a girl child and I would love to have a girl"
#6. "I have done more for my family than a boy could ever do"
Sabbatical? But Why?
#7. "We are still in a nation, where we are asked, 'Oh! You are getting married, are you still going to work? Oh! You're pregnant, are you still going to work? These questions upset me"
#8. "I love acting so why should I stop working," said Kareena when asked if she'll take a sabbatical after delivery
#9. "For directors who want to work with me, pregnancy won't be an issue"
#10. "Whichever film I do, I won't hide my baby bump onscreen. I'm proud of this phase in my life"
More power to you, Kareena.
Now, of the aforementioned fashion.
It's not possible to end without mentioning how chic Kareena Kapoor has looked in the past few months. The actress is setting fashion goals with her casual style. She made bold statements about not hiding her baby bump onscreen and it wasn't lip service. She redefined fashion while showing off her baby bump in bodycon dresses:
From traditional tunics and kurtas to gowns and denims - Kareena owned every look.
Like everything else, Kareena Kapoor was also asked if pregnancy affected her personal style and the actress said: "Luckily, I have always been an actor who has gone for things that have suited my personality. I have never really tried to follow any particular trend. It has always been more casual chic or whenever I am out for the evening, I prefer to wear something that I am comfortable in, something which is a lot more elegant and regal because I believe my fans expect that from me."
Kareena Kapoor married actor Saif Ali Khan in 2012 and the couple are expecting their first child in December. Kareena will be next seen in Veere Di Wedding, co-starring Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. She'll be filming while pregnant.
Happy 36th, Kareena Kapoor. Shine away.
