Kareena Kapoor is making headlines once again, and this time it’s not because of her son Taimur, who’s become an internet phenomenon in his own right.
Just 46 days after becoming a mother, Kareena took to the ramp for designer Anita Dongre at the grand finale of the Lakme Fashion Week S/R 2017. She looked gorgeous in an elegant off white gown and flowing gold jacket, laced with intricate work.
Last year she had flaunted her baby bump at the grand finale of the event’s winter season for veteran designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
When asked how she felt about being back on the ramp so soon after her delivery, she said, “I have always balanced it out. It is great to be back. I said this through pregnancy also that it is not an illness so, I walked the ramp then and I will keep doing that because I love it. I know many people are like I am not in the best shape and with skinny models around… but I think it requires a lot of courage and confidence to do it. I think I have it.”
Her manager, Poonam Damania, shared a behind-the-scenes photo of her during interviews, and captioned it saying, “Day 46 post delivery and on the ramp today… a true inspiration.” That she is!
“There are certain mindsets that you should be hiding away till you are in your best shape. But the fact that I am continuing to work should hopefully inspire a lot of girls that they can balance marriage, motherhood and work. It is okay if I am not size zero but as long as I am looking great and I think I am.” explained Kareena when asked how she was juggling motherhood and work.
"I have always balanced my work and my marriage. People thought that I wouldn't, and I did. I am going to continue to do that. I think women know how to multi-task.
"Today, you see working women out there. If you have a family, if you have a child... It doesn't mean you are home-bound. Of course, there is time for that and work."
Kareena, whose movies we’ve all seen and loved, worked relentlessly through her pregnancy, may they have been for endorsements, tv appearances or runway shows.
"I am taking each day as it comes. I think it's the most beautiful phase of my life," said Kareena. Having said that, she added "parenthood comes with a lot of responsibilities, and both Saif and I are ready for this kind of responsibility,"
Despite all this, Kareena expressed that she didn’t want anybody to think that what she did was any different.
"Because it isn't. The only thing different is that we are just happy, we have an addition in our home.”
