Is a woman only meant to produce babies?

So tired is actor Kareena Kapoor Khan of people asking her about her motherhood plans, that she has decided to answer every question quite bluntly. “A woman does not only need to produce babies,” says the 32-year-old, who married actor Saif Ali Khan in October last year.

“Both Saif and I represent a modern-day couple with a very contemporary way of living, and starting a family is not our priority at all right now. Also, I have a lot to achieve in life at the moment. My career is keeping me busy,” she says. Kareena’s upcoming films include Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein co-starring Imran Khan, and an untitled film with Emraan Hashmi.

Back to the annoying question, she adds, “Earlier, everyone would ask me about my marriage plans. Now that I am married, all people want to know is when I am going to have a baby!” Her life, Kareena says, hasn’t changed after marriage. “Saif and I understand each other and are very much in love. He knows that my career is very important for me. Things have been exactly the same after marriage though we’re so busy I barely get to see him!”
