‘KAREENA IS STRIKING THE PERFECT BALANCE’
Father Randhir blasts trolls who target Kareena Kapoor Khan for calling timeout on child care
Who the hell are they to interfere in our lives?” says an angry Randhir Kapoor, referring to the social network trolls pointing fingers at his daughter, Kareena Kapoor Khan, for occasionally taking out me-time while she has a seven-month-old son.
“Kareena is a modern girl, and she has to go and work out to stay in shape, or else she’ll get trolled for that, too. She has worked all her life and continues to do that after having a baby, so definitely she’s not leaving the child behind; rather, she’s striking the perfect balance,” he says.
The veteran actor’s anger boiled over while speaking to us on the phenomenon that may be described as “let’s troll Kareena because she dares to find time for herself ”.
While shutterbugs don’t miss a chance to click Kareena and her infant son, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, nasty tongues have been at work, too.
Fingers are pointed at Bebo for “abandoning” and “neglecting” Taimur and instead hosting parties and going to the gym. A tweet read: “Taimur Ali Khan, you are so cute, sadly you will never know true meaning of mom, shame on Kareena Kapoor Khan for neglecting her child (sic).” Kareena, 36, shot back, “Going out with friends doesn’t make me any less of a good mother. It’s easy to see a photograph of me and jump to conclusions, but people don’t know my equation with my child. We’re capable of multitasking.” The actor has worked from time to time since Taimur’s birth, walking the runway at a fashion show and shooting for an advert.
Is it really tough for a mother to balance fun, work and parenting? Quite the contrary. Dr Gitanjali Sharma, relationship expert, says, “More than 50 per cent of women go though post-partum blues because they’re confined or just taking care of the baby. One has to look after their own happiness to be able to raise the child.” Actor Mandira Bedi, mother to a five-year-old son, feels, “A parent needs a break from the child.”
Dr Kamal Khurana, mentor for personal transformation, says, “Parenting styles differ, so it’s not fair to judge.”
