Kareena Kapoor Khan on pregnancy: 'I'm pregnant, not a corpse'

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan will welcome their child in December.

Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan has opened up about her pregnancy. The 35-year-old Jab We Met star has squashed reports that she will be taking a break from her work.

During an interview with Hindustan Times, Kapoor talked about the media hype surrounding the baby news. She said: "I'm pregnant, not a corpse. And what maternity break? It's the most normal thing on earth to produce a child. It is high time the media back off, and stop treating me any different than I ever was."

"Anybody who is bothered shouldn't work with me... but my work goes on as is, like always. Stop making it a national casualty. We are in 2016, not in the 1800s. Probably, even at that time, people were way more civilized and normal than the way the media is behaving and speculating now. I'm just fed-up of people making it (her pregnancy) to be a death of some sort. In fact, it should be a message to a lot of people that marriage or having a family has absolutely nothing to do with my career," she added.

In July, Saif Ali Khan had confirmed that he and Kareena are expecting their first child this year end. He said in a statement: "My wife and I would like to announce that we are expecting our first child in December. We would like to thank our well wishers for their blessings and support and also the press for their discretion and patience."
