I’m pregnant, not a corpse: Kareena Kapoor Khan

Though pregnant, there is not stopping for the Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor Khan. The baby is due in December and it is reported that the actor will go on a maternity leave in October but Kareena is fumed with such reports.

“I’m pregnant, not a corpse. And what maternity break? It’s the most normal thing on earth to produce a child. It is high time the media back off, and stop 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,” says Kareena, adding, “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”, quips Kareena.  

Currently, Kareena has over 18 brand endorsement deals, and she plans to shoot for the brands in the upcoming months. When asked her about her association with her brands, she says, “It is great… they will love me for what I stand for, what I represent, and my talent.”

Post pregnancy news, Kareena is all set to shoot for her first ad with the celebrity hairstylist Adhuna Akhtar for her new range of hair colour products.

“It is going to be a fun concept and both Adhuna and Kareena are very excited about it. They have been discussing this for a while and things have finally materialized. Kareena will mostly be shooting the ad on July 19 and 20,” a source said.

The actress will also start working on Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming production ‘Veere Di Wedding’ in August. The actress will be seen sharing screen space with actress Sonam Kapoor in the film.
