Deepika Padukone’s recent statement saying, “I am not getting married and I am not pregnant,” may have been innocent. But the Begum of Bollywood who is currently pregnant for some reason thinks it is a dig at her. Blame her pregnancy hormones or just being extra sensitive but Kareena Kapoor Khan has taken this comment very personally. Says an insider, “While it makes sense for Dips to deny her engagement and marriage rumours, which have been doing the rounds, Bebo can’t understand why she denied being pregnant, because no one said she was! KKK is also annoyed at the unsaid implication that actresses who are in the family way are no longer serious about the career or scare producers away. Kareena is gearing up to begin shooting for her next film and with big belly and all, she will rock it.” We have no doubt she will.
Not to forget, an angry Kareena had recently even lashed out at the news mongers for discussing her pregnancy like a ‘national casualty.’ She had said, “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.”
