Last year, actor Kareena Kapoor Khan received much deserved-appreciation for her charismatic performance in her 2018 film Veere Di Wedding. Not only was it Kareena Kapoor’s first film post Taimur, but it was also India’s first proper attempt at a chick oriented comedy.
However, here’s the unknown fact!
As the film was about to go on floors, Kareena had gotten pregnant with Taimur. In a recent interview with Rajeev Masand, the actress revealed that, after her parents, it was Rhea Kapoor, the producer of the film to know about her pregnancy. Kareena called Rhea Kapoor to inform her that she was with a child.
Kareena also revealed that she started shooting for Veere Di Wedding when Taimur was only six-and-a-half months old.
Kareena said, “It’s unheard off where an actor has gone back to work so fast, especially after childbirth. But I was so sure that this is what I want to do that I picked him up and took him all the way to Delhi where we were to shoot."
The film was scheduled to start shooting earlier than it did. It was because of Kareena Kapoor’s pregnancy the film got delayed right before going on floor. In fact, the actress revealed that she had suggested the film’s producer, Rhea Kapoor to go ahead with some other actress and make the film without Kareena, but Sonam Kapoor’s sister refused and preferred to delay the film.
“I gave the producer a choice. I messaged Rhea honestly and said that listen I am pregnant and I just found out. She was actually the first person I told after my parents about my pregnancy because I didn’t want to take this responsibility that I have a producer on hand. So, when I messaged Rhea, I told her go and get one of the young girls and go ahead with the film,” Kareena Kapoor Khan said.
Though, Kareena Kapoor isn’t even officially on any social media platform, son Taimur is one big social media star!
On the work front, Kareena Kapoor recently wrapped up shooting for her next film, Good News. The film also stars Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. The film is slated to release on September 9, 2019. Bebo will begin shooting for Karan Johar’s sixth directorial, Takht, later this year. Kareena will also be seen in the female lead role alongside Irrfan Khan in Angrezi Medium.
