It's been three months since Kareena Kapoor Khan gave birth to Taimur Ali Khan and post a few days of her delivery, Kareena was back on feet! However, most of the media section, praised her carefree attitude towards motherhood, there were certain section of people, who have been constantly criticizing Kareena Kapoor Khan for the same.
In her latest interview with Bombay Times, Kareena Kapoor Khan expressed, how depressing it is for her, to be judged by people and often being discussed as, 'what kind of mother she is?'
Kareena Gets Upset
"Yes, I (Kareena Kapoor Khan) was on my feet a few days after the 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," said the Refugee actress.
Kareena: Every Mother's Journey Is Different
Kareena further added, "Everyone seems to have an opinion. Postpartum depression is not a must, right? It's whimsical to generalise that every woman goes through that phase, almost making it sound like a norm. Every pregnancy and every mother's journey with her child during those nine months and afterwards is different."
Kareena: Don't Decide Anything On My Behalf
"You can't draw parallels. No one out there really knows me or what I am feeling at a given time. How can anyone decide on my behalf whether I am supposed to feel depressed or if I can step out before 45 days? If I'm spoken about like that, what would it be like for other women?" said Kareena to the leading daily.
People Take The Liberty Of My Absence On the Social Media
"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 Won't Clarify How I Plan To Lose Weight'
"It was annoying to read reports about my fitness regimen and the way I'm losing weight. As a couple, we don't share details of our lives with the world at large. So, I will not clarify what we do, how I plan to lose weight or what I do with my baby."
Kareena: I Won't Scream My Love For Taimur
"I enjoyed my pregnancy and I will enjoy my life on my terms. What kind of a mother I am is something that will unfold with time. 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."
Kareena On Taimur's Name Controversy
"When we named our son Taimur, everyone in the country suddenly turned into a historian, philosopher and scientist."
"How Is My Baby's Name Anyone's Business?"
"Everyone seemed to know the meaning of the name, and the supposed history behind it. They even suggested alternate names for my baby. How is my baby's name anyone's business?"
'I Wanted To Enjoy Every Moment With Taimur'
"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."
It's indeed disturbing to see, what price an actress mommy has to pay owing to her fame and being judged for each and every activity.
It's high time, to understand that one has the full right to live his life on his own terms and we do not need to react/judge others based on their activities.
