Kareena Kapoor Khan who is expecting her first baby with actor-producer Saif Ali Khan is miffed with the reports of her going on a 'maternity leave' and speculations about her upcoming films.
A leading daily quoted the actress saying, "I’m pregnant, not a corpse. And what maternity break? It’s the most normal thing on earth to produce a child. It is high time the media back off, and stop treating me any different than I ever was. Anybody who is bothered shouldn’t work with me... but my work goes on as is, like always. Stop making it a national casualty. We are in 2016, not in the 1800s. Probably, even at that time, people were way more civilised and normal than the way the media is behaving and speculating now,” says Kareena, adding, “I’m just fed-up of people making it (her pregnancy) to be a death of some sort. In fact, it should be a message to a lot of people that marriage or having a family has absolutely nothing to do with my career.”
Well said, Bebo!
The actress will be next seen in Sonam Kapoor's 'Veere Di Wedding'.
