Everyone is aware that Kareena Kapoor Khan’s pregnant and is expecting her first baby with actor-producer Saif Ali Khan in December. The reports of her being pregnant have been doing rounds in media for quite a time now. Everyone is talking about her going on a ‘maternity leave’ and speculations about her upcoming movies. Miffed by these reports, Kareena Kapoor Khan came lashing out at media.
A leading daily quoted the actress saying, “I’m pregnant, not a corpse. And what maternity break? It’s the most normal thing on earth to produce a child. It is high time the media back off, and stop treating me any different than I ever was. Anybody who is bothered shouldn’t work with me… but my work goes on as is, like always. Stop making it a national casualty. We are in 2016, not in the 1800s. Probably, even at that time, people were way more civilised and normal than the way the media is behaving and speculating now.”
The actress further added, “I’m just fed-up of people making it (her pregnancy) to be a death of some sort. In fact, it should be a message to a lot of people that marriage or having a family has absolutely nothing to do with my career.”
Kareena will be next seen in Rhea Kapoor’s ‘Veere Di Wedding’. The shooting of the movie is expected to start in August. Also starring Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar, ‘Veere Di Wedding’ will be directed by Shashanka Ghosh (Khoobsurat fame).
