Don't take anyone's advice, Karisma’s tip to pregnant sister Kareena


Karisma Kapoor who is excitedly waiting to welcome Kareena and Saif Ali Khan’s baby, has advised her younger sister to just follow her instinct. Karisma, who already has two children of her own, has always give the best life lessons to Kareena.

“Well, my advice (to Kareena) is, ‘Don’t take advice from anyone because everyone has some sort of advice to give to a mother-to-be’. I think you should just learn from own instinct and experiences,” the ‘Dangerous Ishq’ actress told IANS when asked what tips she would give to her younger sister during this phase of her life.

Karisma, who obtained a divorce from her entrepreneur husband Sunjay Kapur a few months back after a long and murky legal battle, has an 11-year-old daughter Samiera and a six-year-old son Kiaan Raj, by her ex-husband.

The experienced mother has penned a book titled, ‘My Yummy Mummy Guide: From Getting Pregnant to losing all the weight and beyond’. In the book, the actress has shared advice ranging from finding the perfect maternity outfits to decorating children’s rooms and juggling work with motherhood and even planning the most stylish kiddie parties.

Kareena is in her second trimester and is due in December, but her pregnancy has not deterred her from taking off from work. She walked the ramp with her baby bump on the closing day of the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016 on Sunday night, August 28. She glowed in lovely embroidered lehenga-choli as the showstopper for designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

Karisma proudly said that her younger sister has always believed in setting trends. “Kareena is always a trendsetter. Right from her first movie ‘Refugee’ to doing films like ‘Chameli’ so early in her career till now, walking the runway in this phase… I am excited,” said the actress who was seen cheering for Kareena from the front row of the show.

Kareena will soon begin preparations for her upcoming film ‘Veere Di Wedding’ and will be attending workshops with co-stars Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar before the film goes on floors. While the film will begin shooting in October, Kareena’s portions will be filmed in March next year.
