“Kaun hai woh, jisne dobara mud ke mujhe nahi dekha? Who is he?” – We bet that there is no ‘woh’ in this world, who would have dared to miss out on this aura of self-confidence. Over the career span of close to two decades, Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is a self-proclaimed ‘main apni favourite hoon’, had her own share of ups and downs, but had proved her mettle as an actor and a professional time and again. When Kareena had married the love of her life, Saif Ali Khan at the peak of her career, everyone thought that her career would go downhill. Then when Bebo and Saif had announced that they are expecting their first child, people had believe that now her career will end.

But breaking all the norms, every single time, Kareena Kapoor Khan created her own path, followed her own rules and exemplified the essence of womanhood. Hailing from a star family and getting married in a royal one, Kareena has proved everyone, who questioned or doubted her on her personal choices of tying the knot or embracing motherhood, wrong! With diversified roles and an inspirational personal journey, Bebo has managed to create a special space in everyone’s heart.
Last week, Kareena Kapoor Khan had headed off to Melbourne, Australia to unveil the trophies of the Women’s T20 World Cup, which had taken place on November 1, 2019. Post the unveiling, during a Q&A event when Kareena was asked if marriage and childbirth came with insecurities related to work, she had replied, “No. But there was pressure not to get married because it’s feared that actresses after marriage don't work. Their careers are over. And after a baby more so. People told me that my career was practically over. But for me, that didn't matter. I've done so much work since. Also, I balance my time with family. I'm particular about that time and about being around. It's a side of me that I can't run away from. It’s something that I want. Work is there for sure. But, my family base has always been strong.”
Kareena Kapoor Khan was also asked to choose between the Kapoors and the Khans and her epic reply that came about was “Well, the problem is I don't get to choose because I am Kareena Kapoor Khan, so I am both" and added, "I am lucky I have both." Isn’t she just so amazing?
In an interview with ETNOW, when Kareena Kapoor Khan was asked what made her finally take the decision to marry Saif Ali Khan. Bebo had revealed that the minute she had met Saif, she knew it was going to be more than a casual relationship. And by being so open and supportive in terms of allowing her to work after marriage, Kareena feels that Saif has added a lot to her life. It is Saif, who has shown her that there is more to life than just movies or investing, in terms of the overall approach. When probed about how he has helped her widened her horizons, Kareena had said, “About life in general which I think a man should do for a woman.” (Also Read: Virat Kohli And Anushka Sharma's Trek Experience On His Birthday Is A Perfect Tale Of Love And Peace)
Revealing how Saif Ali Khan has taken the Pataudi palace back, which used to be a hotel, and has done up the whole place again, Kareena Kapoor Khan had commented on her Begum title, by saying, “Those titles are not there now but of course it is a mark of respect because Pataudi is a family home. It is very, very close to Saif’s heart and in fact we have taken it back now and Saif has done up the whole place. It used to be a hotel, now it is not. It is just a home. Saif has grown up there. But I obviously do not take the title seriously. I think the original begum will always be my mom-in-law because she is, you know, so amazing.”
In an interview with Filmfare, Kareena Kapoor Khan had commented on not only being relevant but being far away from the rat race, “As a person, I am very comfortable in my space. I have always been content with the choices I made in my career as well as my personal life. I was never aspiring to be someone. I was always working and will keep working towards being the better version of me. I don’t measure my life by what other people think.”
Speaking of breaking the norms and shelling out inspiration for her post-marriage and post-pregnancy phase, Kareena Kapoor Khan had remarked, “I’m sure a lot of models and actors in our country and in the west have done this as well. But probably, there hasn’t been a commercial actress, who’s not taken a sabbatical or remained behind closed doors. But pregnancy is the most normal thing. I was excited about starting a family and having a child. I was looking forward it to and I wanted to share my joy with my family, friends and fans. So there was nothing to hide. Even the fact that I had gained some weight. Actually, I put on most of my weight during my last trimester. It was also something that I wanted to enjoy. Every woman puts on weight and enjoys that period in her life.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Will Do This If She Is Stuck With Ranbir's Ex-GF's, Deepika, Katrina And Alia In Lift)
