has set some amazing examples when it came to pregnancy in the months gone by. The actress has not only done the never-done-before but also broken many myths revolving around motherhood.
From her initial days of pregnancy to her delivery and even after that, Bebo was on her toes. Be it shooting for movies or advertisements or going around the town shopping and partying, Kareena did it all. And all this while carried herself flawlessly and her baby bump with pride, something that no other actress' had done in the years gone by.
On one hand, Kareena was applauded for breaking the stereotypes but on the other there were many who critized her for being so much socially active, partying after her delivery and coming out in public soon after giving birth to her first baby.
Not only this, controversy over her son's name, Taimur Ali Khan
was also blown out of proportion and she and her husband Saif Ali Khan
were slammed for it. There were people passing insensitive comments and speculating various stories.
All this while, Bebo was quiet and didn't feel like retaliating to all the stories and controversies, but, for the first time now, she has opened up and spoken in length and defended herself.
During an interview with a popular daily, Kareena has opened up about many things revolving her pregnancy, her delivery, her baby and much more.
"Everyone has an opinion in India, especially when it concerns women. 'Hey, you're old enough to be married.' 'Oh, you must have a baby now. It's the right age.' When you want to have a baby should be your choice."
She also spoke about being disappointed when people judged her for her choice to work after becoming a mother and her ethics as a professional.
"Yes, I was on my feet a few days after my 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."
"HOW CAN ANYONE DECIDE ON MY BEHALF WHETHER I AM SUPPOSED TO FEEL DEPRESSED OR IF I CAN STEP OUT BEFORE 45 DAYS?"
Talking about the controversy revolving around her son Taimur Ali Khan
's name, she said: "How is my baby's name anyone's business? All this erupted when I wanted to enjoy every moment of being a mother. Saif and I kept it all aside and savoured our time with Taimur. We cherish every moment we have with him."
She further added that she was annoyed when some people went on to the extent of suggesting names for her baby, "When we named our son Taimur, everyone in the country suddenly turned into a historian, philosopher, and scientist. Everyone seemed to know the meaning of the name, and the supposed history behind it. They even suggested alternate names for my baby."
"Just because I'm elusive and my husband 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."
"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."
On a concluding note, she spoke about women subjugation and stated that nobody should undermine women just because gender roles taught them so.
"Never question a woman's gut and instinct. Women have superior and they know what the right thing is. They are born with strong intuitions. That's why they say, never question your mom. She is always right."
