Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor is not happy with the unnecessary criticism she is receiving for her dressing sense. She was trolled for not dressing in a “motherly” way.
She has now hit back at the trolls in a conversation with Mid-Day. She questioned “what’s motherly?” and said “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.”
She further said, “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.”
On the work front, Kareena Kapoor has now returned to acting after a gap of two years. She is playing a commitment phobic woman in Veere Di Wedding that released in the cinema halls on Friday. She was away from films because of her pregnancy. She is now mother to a 17-month-old son, Taimur Ali Khan.
Kareena started her career in Bollywod with 2000 film Refugee and has been one of the top actors of the Hindi film industry since then.
