Smiling beauty Kareena Kapoor Khan is all set for her forthcoming flick, Veere Di Wedding.
Saif Ali Khan’s begum jaan got pleasure from a special break from work.
When media people asked Bebo regarding the gap that she took, she answered, "What gap? I was up and about all through pregnancy. And I enjoyed the break from the screen. I love being a mother and that’s of utmost importance to me."
She is pleased that Anil Kapoor’s daughter Rhea Kapoor permitted her to take a special break and also waited for her so long.
"I am glad Rhea [Kapoor, co- producer] waited for me because I really wanted to do the film. People are used to seeing me opposite Aamir [ Khan], Shah Rukh [ Khan] or Salman [ Khan]. Four girls helming a film all by themselves is refreshing. She thought I won’t do it because actors either want to play the protagonist or be paired with a Khan," stated Kareena.
The film producers wished to modify the whole screenplay as Kareena was all set to shoot the movie with a baby bump.
But since there’s no motherhood cover [for Indian actresses] like they have out of the country, there was no protection against suffering an accident.
"Shashanka [ Ghosh, director] and Rhea took three months to rework the script so that I could shoot with a baby bump. They planned to show my character six months pregnant. But since there’s no maternity insurance [ for actresses] in India, like they have abroad, there was no safeguard against suffering a mishap. So we scrapped the idea of shooting during pregnancy. India has a long way to go in accounting for every facet of a woman’s life and challenges on the professional front," said the stunning actor.
"Rhea wanted me on board, even if it meant delaying the film by another year. No one ever put any pressure on me. I knew I would take time to resume because I had to be with Taimur. I returned to the set in Delhi over six months after delivery," added Kareena.
Actress Sonam Kapoor, who will also be seen along with Kareena in the flick, recently got married to her beau Anand Ahuja in a stunning Anand Karaj ceremonial.
The reception was attended by the well-known personalities of Bollywood. Amongst them was Kareena Kapoor Khan who became part of the bash along with hubby Saif Ali Khan, son Taimur Ali Khan and sister Karisma Kapoor.
Bebo shares a special companionship with Sonam. An elated Kareena hugged Sonam to congratulate her on her big day.
