Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan says she hopes to be back to doing films soon after the birth of her baby. The mom-to-be actor bagged the Glamorous Diva of the Year award at the LUX Golden Rose awards show held here recently. Asked by event host Arjun Kapoor as to when her fans will see her back in action on her ‘high heels’, Kareena, who is expecting her first child, said, “I will be back on my toes within a month of my delivery.”
“You (referring to Arjun Kapoor) have played my husband in Ki & Ka and you should be grooving on high heels, not me,” she further said. Kareena has already signed for Rhea Kapoor’s Veere Di Wedding, which will also star Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar. In July this year, Kareena’s husband and actor Saif Ali Khan had announced that the couple is expecting their first child in December.
Saif, son of legendary cricketer late Tiger Pataudi and noted actress Sharmila Tagore, tied the knot with the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor in October 2012 after a five-year courtship. The Hum Tum actor was earlier married to actress Amrita Singh and has two children — daughter Sara and son Ibrahim.
The awards show, to be telecast on Zee TV on December 18, was hosted by superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar and Arjun Kapoor joined him as co-hosts. At the event, Anushka Sharma grooved to peppy numbers from her movies, while Shahid Kapoor performed on the iconic songs of Bollywood.
