"Am I some machine?"
Kareena Kapoor spoke about recent rumours that she is expecting a third baby.
The actress had previously reacted to a widely circulated photo of hers that had sparked the rumours and said that it was probably ‘pasta and wine’ that had made her look that way.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, she said that she had been on a 40-day vacation where she’d ‘lost count of how many pizzas (she) had eaten’.
And so, she had to take it in her stride and say, “Chill, we are also human beings.”
She said that her first reaction to the rumours was, “What do you mean ‘is she pregnant? Is she having another baby?’ Am I some machine? Leave the choice to me na!”
She continued, “Listen please guys, we are also human beings, just like all of you, keep it real. In today’s time, I am an actor who has, in fact, been the most honest!
“I was working in the fattest stage of my life when I was eight-nine months pregnant.
“I am somebody who doesn’t hide anything or say I am always going to be perfect. Everybody is allowed to lead their lives also.”
Kareena Kapoor has two sons with her husband Saif Ali Khan – Taimur, born in 2016, and Jehangir, born in 2021.
The actors took very different approaches when it came to exposing their kids to the public glare.
While Taimur was extremely visible from the earliest days, Kareena Kapoor and Saif decided to not reveal Jeh’s pictures and name to the media for several months after he was born, mainly because of the scrutiny that follows Taimur everywhere he goes.
The actress will next be seen in Laal Singh Chaddha, the Hindi remake of Forrest Gump.
Following in the footsteps of her husband, Kareena Kapoor also recently confirmed her streaming debut with Netflix’s The Devotion of Suspect X.
The announcement comes after a long line of Bollywood stars have transitioned over to streaming platforms, most recently Shah Rukh Khan with his SRK+ app.
Spilling the beans on the anticipated motion picture, Kareena Kapoor stated:
“The film is a screen adaptation of a work which was a global bestseller.”
“It has so many aspects to it… murder, mystery, thrill and much more, which put in the hands of our inimitable director Ghosh is something I am eager to start work on.”
The film is a screen adaptation of Keigo Higashino’s Japanese novel, The Devotion of Suspect X and will also feature Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma as the lead.
