Ka­reena talks about moth­er­hood and says she will do her best to teach her son, Taimur to be hum­ble

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tors Ka­reena Kapoor Khan (above-right) and Saif Ali Khan’s de­ci­sion to name their son Taimur sparked a row on so­cial me­dia and the ac­tor says her only ad­vice to her kid would be to re­main grounded and ig­nore everything else that hap­pens around him.

The 36-year-old ac­tor and Saif wel­comed their first child to­gether on De­cem­ber 20 last year. Many so­cial me­dia users tar­geted and al­leged the cou­ple for nam­ing their son af­ter the 14th cen­tury Mon­gol in­vader. About the scru­tiny that’s a part of be­ing a celebrity kid, which in her baby’s case be­gan right af­ter the birth, Ka­reena says, “I want to look at it like he is go­ing to get the best of his par­ents. I was born in a fa­mous film fam­ily and so was Saif, yet we are very grounded. The ad­vice I will give to my child is to have his head down, be hum­ble, do what he wants to do and ig­nore everything else. It is tough in to­day’s times with so­cial me­dia. And we are go­ing to teach him ex­actly what we be­lieve in.”

Taimur is Ka­reena’s first child, while Saif al­ready has daugh­ter Sara and Ibrahim with his for­mer wife, ac­tor Am­rita Singh. Ka­reena says she and her hus­band are grow­ing as par­ents with ev­ery pass­ing day. “Saif is a hand­son fa­ther. He has ex­pe­ri­enced it be­fore, he knows it a lot more. It is a per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence for us. You grow each day, you learn some­thing each day. It is the most beau­ti­ful phase of my life,” she ex­plains.

While most women shy away from cam­eras dur­ing preg­nancy, Ka­reena was one star who posed for shut­ter­bugs through­out the nine months and im­pressed ev­ery­one with her stylish ma­ter­nity wardrobe. The ac­tor says it was noth­ing un­usual for her as she does not be­lieve that preg­nant women or new moth­ers should stay in­doors. “Preg­nancy is the most lovely thing. It is a nat­u­ral phe­nom­e­non, it hap­pens to ev­ery woman. I don’t know why would I sit at home and not work. Preg­nancy is not an ill­ness and so isn’t de­liv­ery. And work is part of my DNA, it will al­ways be there.”

Ka­reena says her work com­mit­ments keep her away from her lit­tle one but she feels it gives her son to spend some time with his fa­ther. “It is dif­fi­cult to leave him at home but that’s fine as he can spend some time with his fa­ther.” On the work front, the ac­tor will re­sume shoot­ing for her next in few months and has al­ready started work­ing on her fit­ness. The film also stars ac­tors Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar will be di­rected by film­maker Shashanka Ghosh. She says post moth­er­hood, there will be no change in the kind of films she does and will al­ways pre­fer to have a mixed bag of projects.
