Kareena Kapoor Khan, one of the gorgeous actresses from Bollywood recently shared an emotional post on her official Instagram handle. In recent times, the actress had written a big post for Humans of Bombay wherein she spoke about her insecurities, encounter with Saif Ali Khan and her newly-born Taimur Ali Khan.
The actress wrote, ‘When I came back home from boarding school, Karisma had just started acting. I was in awe of her – I remember her in ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’, being so passionate. She held herself with such pride through everything; watching her made me want to act too.’
She then added, ‘So when my time came, she taught me to wade through this industry as a woman. It started out great – I did amazing films. But then for a year, I didn’t work. I felt like my career was over; I was told to ‘re-invent’, become size 0. Everyone goes through a lull in their career. But as an actor, it’s worse – there are so many eyes on you.’
Saif Ali Khan was the one in her life who made her understand the significance of creating a work and balancing life. She memorized the moments when Saif and Kareena shot the film Tashan together. She then said, ‘Somehow through my life, I’ve been blessed with people who have supported me thoroughly!’
Kareena then said, ‘So just when I thought I was falling, Saif caught me. I’d met him before, but while we were filming Tashan, something changed. I wore my heart on my sleeve! He was so charming; I fell for him hook, line & sinker. I remember while shooting in Ladakh & Jaisalmer, we’d go on long bike rides for some alone time. We’d enjoy the beauty, have great conversations and just bond.’
Continuing her words Kareena said, ‘I’m at a stage in my life where I don’t have to choose between career & family. I’m doing both. I’m an actor but through all the ups & downs I’ve been a sister, a wife, a mom & none of these roles have deterred me. In fact, it’s put me on the right path. My dreams have gotten bigger–there’s much more to achieve. As an actor, and as a woman.’
Currently, Kareena Kapoor has finished her schedule of the film Good News featuring Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani, and Dilijit Dosanjh.
