Interview With Kareena Kapoor Khan:Work is priority,but family is important

New Delhi, Sep 20 : From taking up films like “Chameli” at the start of her career, going on a size-zero spree, talking her heart out in chat shows and working till the last trimester of her pregnancy — Kareena Kapoor Khan has always chosen her own personal or professional path. Now that she has become a mother, she says work is her priority, but family is very important too.

As her son Taimur Ali Khan will witness his first Diwali this year, she was asked about how she plans not to miss the occasion keeping in mind her shooting schedule for “Veere Di Wedding”. Kareena told IANS in an exclusive interview over email: “We will be finishing our Delhi schedule a few days before Diwali, so I will be spending time with my family. Work is a priority but family is very important to me.”

Taimur was born to Kareena and her actor husband Saif Ali Khan in December last year.

The Lakme brand ambassador, who considers Taimur as the most amazing and cutest child, says he loves hanging out with the family.

“I’m sure (he) will enjoy the family gatherings. Apart from getting him goodies and gifts for the season, I would love to play dress-up with him and get him into the most adorable traditional outfits,” the fashionista said.

“Also, he is a fan of Indian sweets. So, I am sure he would have a fun time trying the very many festive specialties,” said Kareena, who comes from a family of foodies.

Festive season tends to be a time for over-indulging in sweets and savouries. So, what’s the plan for coping with all the extra calories?

“All of us are big foodies. So, I eat everything and enjoy them, but then I make it a point to not miss my workout. I drink lots of water and eat in moderation. Also, I think everyone has become conscious of changing times and has inculcated a responsible sense in us,” said the actress.

Kareena, who has many successful films to her credit including “Jab We Met”, “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham”, “Talaash: The Hunt Begins…”, “Yuva”, “Omkara” and “Udta Punjab”, is also considered one of the flawless beauties in Bollywood.

So what’s her make-up and skincare regime for the festive season?

“Festivals come around a confused season when it’s still hot and humid, but also dry and scaly. So, prepping my skin and giving it the moisturisation and nourishment it needs is very important.

“Also, I am a big foodie, but the aftermath of the yummy, oily delicacies just scares me. So, I follow a three-step prep regime to prevent my skin from breaking — hydrate, nurture and exercise. And the new Lakme Argan Night Serum is an added bonus to this regime, as it gives all the TLC (tender, love and care) and rejuvenation my skin craves for,” she said.

She also says she is a huge fan of dark, smokey eyes.

“For make-up, I always try to keep it simple, clean and fun. Smokey eyes, bold bright lips and dewy skin are my favourite go-to looks,” she added.

“Kohl is my all-time favourite. I absolutely love sporting a bold, red lip. Lastly, the new Lakme Argan Foundation has gotten me hooked for the nourished, dewy finish it gives,” she said. (Interview conducted by Nivedita of IANS)

I’m a born actress, not a born model, Kareena Kapoor Khan said here as she shimmered in a heavily embellished 30 kg golden ensemble at a couture gala here on Thursday night.

Kareena felt “glamorous” and “beautiful” in the Falguni and Shane Peacock lehenga with a Parisian touch at the gala.

“I guess I am just a born actress, and not a born model. So when all the models were walking in front of me, apart from the fact that they are so tall and gorgeous, I realised that it’s so tough and I was so nervous,” Kareena told the media after the show here.

The “Veerey Di Wedding” actress stepped on the ramp with poise despite the 30 kg lehenga, keeping her jewellery minimalistic with just earrings, and letting the bespoke outfit with a Parisian vibe grab the limelight.

As she leaned against the cut-out of a crescent, Kareena lent a dreamy aura to the show, where models then took a final walk.

Kareena said: “I have walked the ramp for nearly a decade and more, but probably this is the first time I am wearing an outfit that weighs 30 kg. But if it wasn’t for Falguni and Shane Peacock, I wouldn’t have done it for anyone else.

“It’s making me feel glamorous… But I know it’s really really tough when you wear these heavy outfits throughout. But I am looking beautiful.”

The designers’ ensembles were teamed up with jewels by Prakshi Fine Jewellery.

Day 2 of the India Couture Week began with a show by veteran designer Pallavi Jaikishan, who showcased ‘Nostalgia’, an amalgamation of her classic old designs revisited and modified to a collection that resonates with the woman of today.

She took her two-decade old Chakra design and blended it with flower motifs, lending a contemporary avatar. Known for her classic flowers done in French knots on saris, these are presented with a new element.

Besides the usual tulle and georgette duchess satins, Jaikishan used a translucent fabric with a glass touch. She also used French lame and tissue for a pleated line and a line of French and Italian brocade lehengas with embroidered dupattas and blouses.

The colour palette in dove blue, old rose and silver oyster with a touch of pink, was highlighted with metallic tones in various shades of gold and silver.

On the sidelines of the gala, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) felicitated model Renee Kujur, who came to limelight for her striking resemblance with international R&B star Rihanna. The tribal girl from Chattisgarh left her home and family years ago and came away to Delhi to make a life as a model. (Bollywood Country)
