‘If you have a child, doesn’t mean you’re home­bound’

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

Just over few months af­ter giv­ing birth to her son, Taimur Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan (right) will be back to work in April.

Talk­ing about multi-task­ing post-moth­er­hood, the ac­tor said she can eas­ily see her­self bal­anc­ing her work and fam­ily. “Peo­ple thought that I wouldn’t, and I did. I am go­ing to con­tinue to do that. I think women know how to mul­ti­task. To­day, you see work­ing women out there. If you have a child... It doesn’t mean you are home­bound. Of course, there is time for that and work.”

The 36-year-old ac­tor main­tained her style quo­tient dur­ing her preg­nancy, and con­tin­ued to be ac­tive at en­dorse­ment-re­lated events and so­cial gath­er­ings. “It was just some­thing I wanted to do. It was some­thing I be­lieved in, that I have noth­ing to hide. When I got mar­ried, it was the most beau­ti­ful phase. Preg­nancy was the most nor­mal thing that was go­ing to hap­pen and giv­ing birth to a child is as nor­mal as ever. I want life to go on,” she said.

“I am tak­ing each day as it comes,” Kareena added fur­ther. Hav­ing said that, she agrees “par­ent­hood comes with a lot of re­spon­si­bil­ity”. “Both Saif and me are ready for this (re­spon­si­bil­ity).”

On the work front, Kareena is prep­ping for the up­com­ing film Veere Di Wed­ding, which also stars ac­tors Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar.

“We are go­ing to start the work in April,” she said, adding that she has also be­gun her work­out regime. For the next two months, she wants to get into shape be­fore she starts work­ing on the film.
