The time is not right: Kareena Kapoor Khan

MUMBAI: B-Town is abuzz with speculation that Saif Ali Khan and his begum of three years, Kareena Kapoor Khan are expecting their first child by the end of this year. Supposedly, Kareena is in her third month of pregnancy and is waiting until July (her fourth month) before she can announce her pregnancy.

Do saal baad!
The actress has maintained that she and Saif would start a family after a couple of years. “Two years from now, I’ll be a mum,” Kareena was quoted as saying last year. She turns 37 next year.

No freeze
Last month when she was spotted at a gynaecologist’s clinic in Bandra, there was speculation that she was freezing her eggs. The actress denied that rumour to this paper, saying, “When I decide to have a child, I will have it the natural way. I don’t believe in freezing my eggs.”

Clothes tell a tale
Currently, Bebo’s dressing is fanning baby rumours. Noted for her figure-hugging outfits, she has been spotted in loose-fitting clothes, of late. Even during her holiday in London last week, she was dressed rather demurely. And in many photographs, she is seen covering her stomach. At an event last week, she wore an anarkali and had her left hand on her stomach throughout the event. Says an eyewitness, “Her body language was exactly that of a pregnant woman.”

No denials
When asked at an event if she was pregnant, the actress just laughed off queries, saying, “Everytime I go on a holiday, these rumours come up. I am a woman, na… You know God willing… Hopefully… But you know right now there’s nothing to say about it.” When the journalist persisted with “So these are just rumours?” Kareena said, “No, but the fact that you are all talking about me, I am very excited. I’ve five hidden children in London!” Please note. No denial.

When another asked her a pointed question, she said, “Oh God! Whenever there is something to say, of course, Saif and I will tell our fans, but the time’s not right and God willing… we will be the first to tell you.”

The actress did not have any interactions with the media for her release Udta Punjab. To avoid uncomfortable questions, perhaps?

On the work front, she has one film — Veere Di Wedding — which rolls in August this year and will be shot in one schedule in Delhi and Thailand. The film revolves around four girls who are friends and the script can later be altered to show Bebo’s character as married and pregnant, if need be.
