Kareena Kapoor Khan Opens About Raising Sons Jeh And Taimur; Says, “It’s Important For The Boys To Know That Women Are Equal To Men”
Kareena Kapoor Khan is one of the highest paid actresses of Bollywood today. The diva has set an example for women that getting married or having kids does not stop you from having work. The actress is very much clear about instilling the same thought in her sons’ Jeh and Taimur’s minds that women equally work hard as much as men do.
In an interview with film companion Kareena said, “Well in the case of Tim and Jeh, I think the idea is that they see me go to work even now. Like when, every time I put on my shoes, Taimur asks, ‘where are you going?’ My answer is ‘I’m going to work or I’m going to shoot or I’m going for an event or I’m going for a meeting because amma has to work’. So, abba works and so does amma. I think growing up looking at the fact that in this house, it’s not just the man who does things, we both do things equally.”
She continued further and added, “We’re both bringing food to the table, we’re both very clear on the fact that we’re both working as a couple. We’re dependent on each other emotionally, and financially we share. And if my boys grow up knowing that their mother has the capability and demands that kind of respect in her home and gets it. Goes out to work, works hard and comes home so that they can have a good life. I think that’s half the battle won. It’s important for the boys to know that women are equal to men. A mother is their father’s equal.”
On the work front, Kareena Kapoor is all set for her next release Laal Singh Chadha alongside Aamir Khan with whom she is working for the third time after Taalash and 3 idiots. The film is a Bollywood remake of Tom Hank’s Forest Gump.
