Tell us about your comeback with Vikram Bhatt’s Dangerous Ishq.
It feels great to be back on the sets with Dangerous Ishq. There is still a lot of time left before the film releases so you will have to wait to see my look in that. It will be very special as I am doing a film after a long time.
You are a mother of two, (Samaira and Kiaan). Does pregnancy become easier to handle when you have a second child?
I am a very paranoid person. So the second time around, it is definitely better and easier. I have enjoyed motherhood and I think it is the best feeling in the world.
How did you prepare for motherhood?
I read a lot of books, I asked my mother about it but honestly, you cannot prepare to be a mother. Once you hold your baby in your arms, it’s an altogether different feeling. When Samaira was born, I literally did not sleep for one-and-a-half years. I was so worried about my baby being okay. The second time around I realised that he will be okay. But even then I didn’t take anything for granted.
After two deliveries, you can still give contemporary actresses a run for their money with your fit body.
I lost so much pregnancy weight despite eating fish curry and rice every night. People are shocked to know that I eat carbs at night. But my trainer Rujuta Diwekar allowed me to eat healthy. Bebo (Kareena) is the one who recommended me to her. After you have a baby, it is important for you to have carbs and that is what I did. We are fit girls and we eat healthy.
Like the other Kapoors, are you also a foodie?
People are shocked to know that I am a typical ‘Kapoor’ and a big foodie. I have very bad eating habits. I have been eating biryani and chocolate cake all the time. Being Punjabi, Bebo and I both eat a lot of gobi parathas. Our trainer taught us to eat right and that it is not important to starve but to eat every two hours, to be fit and feel fantastic.
