Kareena Kapoor Khan has been busy promoting Veere Di Wedding along with her co-stars Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania. While it created a lot of buzz for the film, these promotions also brought out the stylish side of all the lead actresses, especially Bebo! We loved how she gave us #fashiongoals with all her outfits and how fit the actress looks post her pregnancy. While we can’t help but be in awe and applaud the actress for this, there are many trolls out there who’d rather criticize her for not wearing motherly clothes. WHAT!?
During Veere Di Wedding’s release week, the actress wore a black outfit for the movie’s music launch and some trolls for wearing something so bold. Again, WHAT!?
But Kareena isn’t one to be fazed by such comments, she recently told Mid-Day:
One should wear what they look good in. I don’t know what’s motherly dressing. My mom [Babita] wears modern clothes, she looks fabulous in jeans and a top. Have you seen my mother-in-law [Sharmila Tagore]? She looks gorgeous in a pair of jeans and a shirt, just as much as she does in a silk saree. I come from a world where women wear what they want to. Just because I have had a baby doesn’t mean I can’t wear a short dress. If you have the confidence and the body to pull off something, wear it by all means.
Kareena also referred to the criticism that came her way during her pregnancy and said:
When I was pregnant, there was so much talk about me being up and about. People need to let women embrace the various phases of their lives.
The actress spoke about her contemporaries setting the right kind of examples when it comes to not giving into unrealistic expectations:
Earlier, the mindset of Indian actresses was that they had to look 25, no matter what their age is. We don’t succumb to those pressures any more. Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Alia Bhatt are breaking these barriers. We won’t be rattled any longer by who is saying what.
Well said, Bebo! Hey, trolls. Crawl away, your rock awaits.
