Kareena spoke about the women in the film industry, who want a secure work place and according to her currently that is being addressed.
“We are openly having discussion today. The fact that there are so many women, who have come out and spoken, that’s a start. The fact is earlier people hadn’t spoken for years”, Kareena said.
“Today, people have come out and I really appreciate those women, who actually had the courage to stand up and talk and that is going to help all of us change our workplace and give us security,” she further added.
“Its an unknown territory but I think it’s a territory that we need to speak about and it’s a topic that we need to address. I am glad that they think that I was perfect for it because I have been opinionated all my life so, I think it’s time that women should speak out and I think it’s going to be a fabulous show”, added Kareena, stressing on that it’s high time women should speak out.
Kareena further said that every woman in the film industry should feel safe in her workplace. “Whoever it is, big or small, it has to be safe. It doesn’t matter whether you are the biggest superstar or the smallest, women have to be secure. And the most important thing is that we have to keep this momentum going. We have to keep the conversation alive and once we do that, a lot will change,” she said.
When asked upon, what she has been wanting as a woman all her life, Kareena replied, “I have always been someone who wanted to follow her heart. When I was getting married people told me that don’t get married because your career will end after that. No producer will take you in his films and you will not get any work.”
Film actress who is married to Saif Ali Khan, also talked about her marriage life and work, “But after marriage, I have been working so much that sometimes, I say I don’t want to work too much”, she added.
