- A section of the Internet said Kareena should 'dress like a mother'
- But Kareena thinks "One should wear what they look good in"
- "I come from a world where women wear what they want to," she added
"Earlier, the mindset of Indian actresses was that they had to look 25, no matter what their age is. We don't succumb to those pressures any more. Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Alia Bhatt are breaking these barriers. We won't be rattled any longer by who is saying what," Kareena added.
During her pregnancy, Kareena often featured in headlines for her appearances in head-turning maternity wardrobe choices. She even walked the ramp for Sabyasachi in her third trimester. Kareena said she was subjected to criticism even then: "When I was pregnant, there was so much talk about me being up and about. People need to let women embrace the various phases of their lives."
Soon after Taimur was born, Kareena signed up for a rigorous work-out regime to lose the post pregnancy weight and join the sets of Veere Di Wedding. She was almost regularly spotted outside her gym and sometimes attending showbiz parties, when she was criticised for "abandoning: Taimur. This is what she had told mid-day then: "Going out with friends doesn't make me any less of a good mother. Motherhood doesn't mean a woman must give up on herself. It's easy to see a photograph of me and jump to conclusions, but people don't know my equation with my child. We are capable of multitasking."
Kareena Kapoor has brutally been trolled twice this year. In March, she was told she "looks like a skeleton" after she walked the ramp in a Manish Malhotra ensemble in Singapore, which revealed her toned mid-riff. Last month, the Internet thought she was "too skinny" after she attended Sonam Kapoor's reception in a similar outfit, also by Manish Malhotra.
Kareena Kapoor's Veere Di Wedding released to great reviews today. She co-stars with Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania in the film.
