Kareena Kapoor has the perfect reply to Mira’s ‘puppy’ remark


Last month, Shahid Kapoor’s wife Mira Rajput had apparently taken a jibe at Kareena Kapoor with her comments on motherhood, during a panel discussion on the occasion of Women’s Day. Mira had said that her daughter Misha was not a puppy and that she wouldn’t to rush off to work after spending an hour with her baby. Mira earned a lot of criticisms from working mothers and was also trolled on social media for her views.

Now, Kareena, who was back on her toes within days after giving birth to her son Taimur, has hit out saying that no one has the right to judge what kind of mother she is.

In an interview to The Times of India, the ‘Ki & Ka’ actress said, "Yes, I was on my feet a few days after the delivery, but it's upsetting to have people judge you for it. No one has the right to comment on how I conduct myself or what sort of a mother I am. Everyone seems to have an opinion.”

“Postpartum depression is not a must, right? It's whimsical to generalize that every woman goes through that phase, almost making it sound like a norm. Every pregnancy and every mother's journey with her child during those nine months and afterwards is different. You can't draw parallels,” she added.

The actress, who walked the ramp as the showstopper at the grand finale of Lakme Fashion Week just after 45 days of giving birth, further said, “No one out there really knows me or what I am feeling at a given time. How can anyone decide on my behalf whether I am supposed to feel depressed or if I can step out before 45 days?”

Kareena added, "I enjoyed my pregnancy and I will enjoy my life on my terms. What kind of a mother I am, is something that will unfold with time. I will not scream from rooftops about experiencing motherhood or how much I love Taimur. There's always the pressure of being judged, no matter what you do. It's about how you deal with it."

“Just because I’m elusive and my husband (Saif Ali Khan) and I are not on social media talking about our emotions on an hourly basis, people take the liberty to put out stories about my child and me,” said Kareena, who will soon begin shooting for her next ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
