Kareena Kapoor, who returned to silver screen with Veere Di Wedding, co-starring Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania, was trolled for wearing short dresses during promotions spree of the film. Trolls suggested that Kareena should not wear short and revealing dresses as she is a mother now.
While talking to Mid-Day, Bebo gave her opinion on the matter and said, “What's motherly, or unmotherly for that matter?”
Hitting back at the trolls, Kareena 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. 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. If you have the confidence and the body to pull off something, wear it by all means."
She further added, “When I was pregnant, there was so much talk about me being up and about. People need to let women embrace the various phases of their lives. Earlier, the mindset of Indian actresses was that they had to look 25, no matter what their age is. We don't succumb to those pressures any more. Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Alia Bhatt are breaking these barriers. We won't be rattled any longer by who is saying what."Well said, Kareena!
