MUMBAI: When Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan confirmed the news about wife Kareena Kapoor’s pregnancy two weeks ago, Indian media started speculating what would be Bebo’s next step.
Will she take a maternity break? Has she undergone a sex-determination test in London? What is her new diet plan? But all these speculations seemed to have upset the star.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, she said, “I’m pregnant, not a corpse. And what maternity break? It’s the most normal thing on earth to produce a child.”
Lashing out on reporters, she said, “It is high time the media backed off, and stopped treating me any different than I ever was. Anybody who is bothered shouldn’t work with me… but my work goes on as is, like always.”
“Stop making it a national casualty. We are in 2016, not in the 1800s. Probably, even at that time, people were way more civilised and normal than the way the media is behaving and speculating now.”
“I’m just fed up of people making it (her pregnancy) to be a death of some sort. In fact, it should be a message to a lot of people that marriage or having a family has absolutely nothing to do with my career,” HT quoted her as saying.
On the work front, Kareena has around 18 endorsements and is also planning to finish the shoot of Veere Di Wedding, in which she will share the screen with Sonam Kapoor. – SAMAA
