During a recent interview with Anupama Chopra, Kareena Kapoor Khan commented on the nepotism debate and Taimur Ali Khan.
She said that people can’t assume that just because she is a movie star, her son will also be one. Kareena emphasized that Taimur will have to find his own path without his parents’ help.
Kareena said that she wishes that her son be self-sufficient and self-reliant while addressing nepotism – “I think everyone gets what they deserve in their lives, what is there in their destiny. Yeh nahi hai ki Taimur Ali Khan is going to become the biggest star in this country. He’s not. He’s probably the most photographed child in this country, for whatever reason, I have no clue. I will also wish for my son that he be self-sufficient and self-reliant.”
She further elaborated saying – “I am like you do what you want to do in life. You want to be a chef somewhere, a pilot, whatever you want to do. I want him to fly and be happy in his life. And it’s not necessary that because he has successful parents, he will be successful. His journey is going to start when he wants to start. He has to find his own path. His parents are not going to help him in whatever way.”
Kareena also mentioned how she was known as ‘Karisma Kapoor’s sister’ initially. She pointed out that her parents did not help her out in her career either.
“So all this nepotism ki ye hoga woh hoga, Taimur star banega…. arre we also don’t know,” she added.
The Pretty Pataudi Begum and Saif are expecting their second child. On the work front, she’ll be seen with Aamir Khan in Laal Singh Chaddha. She also has KJO’s Takht in the pipeline, but it has been put on the back burner for now considering the large human resources the period film would have required amid the pandemic.
Kareena also said that she is currently reading film scripts and also a few web series. She also wants to be part of a web series after watching shows such as Mirzapur, Delhi Crime, Sacred Games and Paatal Lok.
