Kareena Kapoor’s pregnancy and her dramatic weight loss afterwards – both made news. The actor over the past one year has shed all the pregnancy weight and her posters from Veere Di Wedding have people commenting on her svelte looks. The actor herself would rather downplay it all.

While speaking to Mid_day, the actor said, “I have always been very fitness conscious. Everyone is saying I have lost weight so fast, but I have taken a year and a half. It has happened over time. It’s not for the movies, but just for me. Like I always say, feed me karela for lunch and dinner and I am happy. Also, you have to find joy in smaller things in life, not just success. I am happiest when I am having coffee or a glass of wine with a friend and chatting.”

In fact, her first film in two years, Veere Di Wedding, because of its hotness quotient. “That’s one of the reasons I did the movie. It’s young and fresh. I could have come back in an author-backed role, playing a titular character. But I chose not to. I just had a baby, and I wanted to do something that’s young and the language for which is different,” she says.

Veere Di Wedding will release on June 1.
