Kareena Kapoor Revealed She Was 20 Kilos Overweight During 1st Pregnancy, Adviced, 'Itna Mat Khao'

Popular diva, Kareena Kapoor is one such Bollywood actress who never shied from opening up about her pregnancy phase. From satiating her pregnancy carvings and giving a glimpse to her massive fanbase to creating a buzz during the Lakme Fashion Week 2016 as she walked the ramp with her baby bump for the first time, Bebo has set some unmatchable goals for all pregnant ladies. Moreover, she embraced motherhood at 36 and 41, discarding the societal norms about a certain age for conceiving. However, here is an old interview, wherein she revealed how she was advised not to eat anymore.

Kareena Kapoor revealed that she is a hypochondriac

In an old interview with Rediff in 2019, Kareena Kapoor opened up about her first pregnancy. The gorgeousness revealed how she is a hypochondriac and constantly kept asking her doctor a hundred questions. She also took advice from her sibling, Karisma Kapoor, during her pregnancies. In Kareena's words:

"I am generally an hypochondriac, so I used to ask my doctor 100 questions! There would be a question every day until he told me, 'Listen, there's nothing to ask, just relax.' Of course, it was a first-time pregnancy and my sister (Karisma Kapoor) was just a phone call away. She would guide me."

Further, Kareena recalled how she had put on so much weight during her first pregnancy. She revealed that initially, the diva was taking care of her diet. But once she started enjoying her pregnancy, she constantly ate many food items she liked. This is how she became ‘20 kilos overweight’ and was asked by the doctor not to eat anymore. She shared:

"My doctor would ask me to come and weigh myself because he said you are 20 kilos overweight, itna mat khao! Actually, you are not supposed to overeat during pregnancy because then you get acidity. You have to eat right. I did try to do that for six months, but after that, it was all downhill. But I enjoyed my pregnancy."

Kareena also revealed the number of parathas she used to eat a day

In 2019, her film, Good Newwz, co-starring Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani, was also released. Thus, in the same conversation, Kareena was asked if her part in the film was made based on her pregnancy. To this, she had mentioned how she used to eat lots of parathas during her real-life pregnancy, which was much less during the shoot. Kareena had stated:

"I had to wear a pregnant stomach – there are different phases in the film where she's three months, six months and then nine months pregnant. They made a prosthetic swimsuit of a belly and it was made in London. I had to wear that swimsuit under my clothes. It looked so natural with a belly button. I had forgotten what it was like to be pregnant. This was a pregnancy without parathas, that was a pregnancy with parathas! I used to eat five to 10 parathas a day. Now, I eat one."
