In a recent interview with Bombay Times, Kareena, who is currently shooting for her chat show What Women Want, revealed why she chose to not take time off and rest.
She said, “No, there has never been any plan that I have to do this or that. It’s just that I have never been that kind of a person who would sit at home and say, ‘Now I want to put my feet up’. I am doing what I want to do. Working — whether it’s during my pregnancy or post-delivery — has been a point to just say that when has anyone ever said that pregnant women can’t work? In fact, the more active you are, the healthier the baby is and the happier the mother is. After delivery, too, once you feel fit enough, one should do what they feel like doing, and try to balance it out between giving time to the child as well as your work and yourself. I have always been very proud of being a working mother.”
Kareena also credited Saif for his support and said that he puts her at ease. Kareena added, “I think that he does understand in a way, especially when it comes to working women — be it a mother, sister, wife or daughter. He understands and respects working women a lot. He gives us the space to do exactly what we want. I think a happy woman is the one who is doing what she loves the most. I am glad that he understands that, and I believe that it comes from his mother.”
On the work front, Kareena’s show, What Women Want, is in its third season and will now stream on Filmy Mirchi’s YouTube channel. The ‘Good Newwz’ actor had recently returned to Mumbai from Dharamshala where she spent some time with Taimur and Saif, as the latter shot for his new film, Bhoot Police.
