‘MY SON IS THE MAN’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Ak­shata Shetty

Ka­reena Kapoor Khan has em­braced mother­hood. The ac­tor, who has been a suc­cess­ful ac­tor, a wife, and is now a dot­ing mother, says she is en­joy­ing this phase of her life. Ka­reena talks about her son Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, who is one-and-a-half months old, be­ing the “the most gor­geous man” in In­dia, bal­anc­ing home and work, and how she can still look “glam­orous” in track pants.

How has mother­hood been...

It has been an amaz­ing trans­for­ma­tion, be­cause when you be­come a mother, mother­hood comes nat­u­rally to you. Ev­ery­thing hap­pens or­gan­i­cally, and I think that’s ex­actly what’s hap­pened with me. I was look­ing for­ward to this part of my life. I don’t think I have ever been or looked hap­pier.

What is that one thing you would want your son Taimur to in­herit from Saif Ali Khan and you?

My son is the most gor­geous man on this side of the equa­tor; in In­dia, tech­ni­cally. You will see soon (laughs).

You made preg­nancy look fash­ion­able. Did you have a wardrobe ready?

I don’t re­ally think about what I am go­ing to wear when I step out. I might even walk out of the air­port wear­ing track pants and a sweat­shirt. If the fash­ion blog­gers think that’s not fash­ion­able, I don’t care. I can still look glam­orous in my track pants.

You are an in­spi­ra­tion to many work­ing women who find it hard to jug­gle be­tween their work and homes. Do you have any tips for them?

I think women love to mul­ti­task. There are more work­ing women out there to­day than ever be­fore. In my fam­ily, my sis­ter (Karisma Kapoor) and my mother-in-law (Sharmila Tagore) have both worked af­ter hav­ing kids. I have been in­spired by strong women in my fam­ily. I have al­ways struck a bal­ance be­tween giv­ing time to Saif and work­ing. I don’t see any dif­fer­ence now.

What’s your beauty reg­i­men?

Hon­estly, I do not take care. I am blessed with good skin ge­net­i­cally. My mother’s (Babita) skin glows even to­day. In fact, she should be the brand am­bas­sador of Lakmé. She used their prod­ucts, even be­fore her daugh­ter en­dorsed and be­came the brand am­bas­sador of the brand.
