Kareena says it’s vital for actors to set right examples

NEW DELHI: Actors play an important part in everyone’s life, and so it is important to set right examples for people, says Kareena Kapoor Khan, citing how she did the same when she continued with her work throughout her pregnancy and even after delivering her child.

She believes it is her individuality that sets her apart.

“As actors, we play a very important part in everyone’s life. We are considered role models and it is necessary on our part to set the right examples for people. I’m someone who has always lived from the heart. I did not want to do things because everyone else was doing them.

“If I am comfortable working in a certain way, then I do so with all my conviction. I have always followed what I believe in and it is my individuality which sets me apart. Everything I have in life, I have wanted it for a long time and I have worked very hard for it,” Kareena said over an e-mail when asked how important it is for actors to have their own individuality, break the norms and lead life by their own rules to make a mark in today’s Bollywood.

Kareena embraced motherhoood with the birth of Taimur with husband Saif Ali Khan in December 2016. She is currently a part of designer Anita Dongre’s #ANDImpact intitiave.

Through this campaign, the brand highlights the importance of a sustainable environment and celebrates four such women change-makers − Priyanka Raina, Purnima Burman, Srishti Bakshi and Rashi Anand − who are making a difference today for a better tomorrow.

How does Kareena connect with this particular campaign? “I believe these women are born fighters − be it personally or professionally. They are change-makers, they are capable of standing on their own feet, against all odds... They are the voice for a million other women.

She says “women are change-makers (and) can achieve anything they set their mind to. Women today are bold, brave, empowered and at the same time they are compassionate, giving and sensitive to the needs of others.”

Kareena believes in embracing every part of her life with confidence and gusto.

“I believe in what I do and I have always spoken my mind. I do my own thing. The fact that I was working throughout my pregnancy and that I continue to work even after having a child, should inspire a lot more women to find that balance between their personal and professional lives.”
