Kareena Kapoor Khan believes in making choices that make sense to her, not what the public opinion dictates. The actor owned her pregnancy like a boss and is bringing the same attitude to motherhood. Always on her toes, super active, and yet always ready with a smile for the camera, that’s how Kareena Kapoor Khan is going through the special moments with elan. In fact, she shuts the ‘what kind of a mother she will be’ like a boss. In an interview to Bombay Times, Kareena says she is annoyed with stories about her, Saif Ali Khan and son Taimur. “Just because I’m elusive and my husband and I are not on social media talking about our emotions on an hourly basis, people take the liberty to put out stories about my child and me.”
She continues how “it was annoying to read reports about my fitness regimen and the way I’m losing weight.” The actor says that she has no responsibility to put her personal life out there. Hence, she would “not clarify how I plan to lose weight or what I do with my baby. I will not scream from rooftops about experiencing motherhood or how much I love Taimur. There’s always the pressure of being judged, no matter what you do. It’s about how you deal with it.”
Talking about how people questioned her being back within days of becoming Taimur’s mommy, she said, “Yes, I was on my feet a few days after the delivery, but it’s upsetting to have people judge you for it. No one has the right to comment on how I conduct myself or what sort of a mother I am. Everyone seems to have an opinion. Postpartum depression is not a must, right? It’s whimsical to generalise that every woman goes through that phase, almost making it sound like a norm. Every pregnancy and every mother’s journey with her child during those nine months and afterwards is different.”

Now, as soon as Taimur was born, his name became a huge controversy over social media. While Saif had addressed the issue calmly saying, ‘what’s in a name’, Kareena seemed upset that people made it a huge issue when she was still new to motherhood. “How is my baby’s name anyone’s business? All this erupted when I wanted to enjoy every moment of being a mother. Saif and I kept it all aside and savoured our time with Taimur. We cherish every moment we have with him,” said the actor who is back at work post-pregnancy.
At Zee Cinema Awards, which were recently held in Mumbai, Saif sent a short video message for Kareena in which he said he is proud of Kareena who has carried off her pregnancy with so much grace and has even started to complete her work commitments. On the work front, the actor is prepping up for Veere Di Wedding, also starring Sonam Kapoor.
