Kareena reveals if Bollywood’s ageist notions have affected her to get equal opportunity

Spilling more beans in the same interview, Kareena addressed the notions of ageism, that the Hindi film industry has been notoriously attributed to. She opened up and revealed, whether, as a result of presumed age-shaming, she faced any difficulties landing up on decent opportunities. Answering the issue, Bebo mentioned that she has done everything in her personal life at the right time, and thankfully, her work life has always remained at peace, since she is getting suitable opportunities. She mentioned:

“Having seen so many failures and successes in the industry, films happen and don’t happen, it makes you a strong person. For me, everything happened at the right time. I got married, I had children. I decided to work. I’m at peace with the work I’m getting, that also relaxes you.”


Kareena Kapoor reveals if she’s scared of ageing, and insecure about her image

In the concluding segment of the interview, Kareena Kapoor revealed if she was scared to accept her age, and is guilty of photoshopping her images as a result of it. She mentioned that she is living her best life as it is, and stated that she feels growing old is a normal course of every human life. Elaborating more, Kareena stated:

“I’m not trying to photoshop my images too much. Sometimes people say, no, no, you should. I’m like, some days I’m going to look tired, because I’m human, and my fans should know that. We’re not always going to be 20, and thank god for that; I don’t want to be 20. I’m having the time of my life, and I’m still the hot padosan.”
