Kareena Kapoor On Roles Offered To Actresses In Bollywood After Having Kids

Kareena Kapoor is absolutely enjoying her pregnancy for the moment and is not too concerned about the kind of roles she will be offered post her maternity break. While it’s often seen how most heroine’s become choosy and pick roles often women oriented ones while returning to acting after delivering a baby, Kareena feels it’s perhaps too early to talk about her future and she prefers the ‘let’s see’ approach for the moment.

While actress Tara Sharma had in a recent interview with us revealed how she was not offered good roles post marriage and kids, Kareena while choosing not to comment on Tara’s statement declined to see Bollywood as enforcing stereotypes on married actresses. Said Kareena, “As far I am concerned I have been very lucky. It’s all about your attitude and the way you look at things. It is the way you approach things that really matters. I don’t look at Bollywood as it stereotypes. It’s the roles that come to me from which I will pick and choose the best that is offered to me.”

Elaborating on her plans to continue working, Kareena said, “I am definitely going to go on with my normal life. I am a working woman and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. So I love my job and I am passionate about my work. From the time I was in mother’s womb, I wanted to be an actor. I will continue acting all my life. If there is a role for me why should I not do it?”

    This reflects in part the mental depravity of the present directors and /or producers. In US and UK actors continue to get plum roles despite having multiple children. There is a long list of super stars who continue to get top roles in English movies. We too can take a step in this direction and accept marriage and children as a very private aspect of an actor and treat them with same respect as before.

      What roles are offered and accepted will, depend on the actress ,when time comes for the same. Too early to predict as to what will, happen after a long gap.
