Kareena Kapoor Khan On Breaking Stereotype By Getting Married And Still Having A Career: ‘Lot Of Women Took Inspiration From This’
Kareena Kapoor Khan is celebrating her 20th anniversary in Bollywood and she has come a long way from her Bollywood debut in 2000 film Refugee co-starring Abhishek Bachchan, to her most recent film Good Newwz, also starring Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani, Diljit Dosanjh. In a recent interview, Kareena opened up about her long journey in the film industry. She revealed all that she learnt from her hubby Saif Ali Khan, and also opened up about being advised by people on not getting married as it would end her career.

In a conversation with BBC Asian Network, Kareena Kapoor Khan revealed the important things she has learnt from Saif. She said, “The best thing I’ve learned from Saif is being comfortable with myself and not always running after money, success, fame. He’s taught me to love the greater things in life, that there’s something greater than money, fame and success, which I probably didn’t know — like family, love, calmness, peace of mind, or reading a book, or sitting and having a conversation not about work and competition.”

Kareena Kapoor Khan also revealed that she wasn’t a part of the rat race in the film industry, and when people would suggest that her career would end after she got married, she replied that she isn’t running in a rat race, and it isn’t a competition for her. “I left the rat race a long time back. Even before, everyone was like don’t get married, your career’s over. I was like I don’t wanna be in this, I’m not running this competition, I’m not a rat, I’m an actor. A lot of women actually took inspiration from this. So the idea was that a lot of people suddenly had faith that this can, and a lot of people followed that, from this generation.”


Kareena Kapoor Khan also added a dash of humour when she was asked about being forced to watch her earlier snippets and interviews. She said, “It makes me feel like, "what was I thinking?" Because so much has changed in the last two decades and I have changed as a person. My entire approach to life and thinking has changed. I think when I was 17, you’re immature, you kind of think like you own the world. Of course, a 17-year-old should think that, as that is the age to think that and learn from mistakes. I'm happy to know I have nothing to regret, but I have learnt from my mistakes.” ALSO READ: Kareena Kapoor Khan's Reaction As She Meets A TikToker In THIS Throwback Video Is Unmissable - Watch
