Kareena Kapoor Khan looks like a million dreams as seen in the trailer of her upcoming film Veere Di Wedding. We wonder how she managed to balance the pressures of motherhood, getting back into shape and being camera ready. Bebo laughs and says, “Getting ready for the camera is something I don’t need to do. I was ready the minute I was born. We women somehow know how to multitask. I’m enjoying every minute of it. I’m balancing it well. My time with my child is my time. I don’t need to flaunt it on Instagram. I don’t need to flaunt it in front of the media.”
Neither Bebo nor husband Saif Ali Khan believe that carrying her child in her arms always necessarily proves that she’s a hands-on mother. She explains, “I don’t need to carry my child my child at the airport to prove how much I love my child. My husband too believes it’s not needed. By carrying the child in my arms I don’t need to prove that I’m a hands-on mother. Even if I have two hours with Saif, Taimur and myself in the bedroom, it’s the quality of time and wanting to be together that matters rather than the quantity of time we spend. I come from that school of parenting.”
Were there moments where she feared a breakdown – staying up nights and reporting to work the next day or leaving behind Taimur when he was unwell…? Kareena replies with candour, “Of course! These things come as a part and parcel of motherhood. It’s also a bit of a downer. But that’s the joy of being a mother. The late nights, being there for your child, I don’t view these as pain. I was mentally ready for it. I look at the joy that motherhood brings. That’s the best feeling.”
And she seems to be enjoying every bit of it too!
