The India Today Conclave is an annual event consisting of performances, discussions, and debates on topics of importance to the society. The conclave this year was graced by the Kapoor sister – Karisma and Kareena. Hillary Clinton, former US – secretary of state and 2016 Democratic Party nominee for president was also present at the conclave. It is no surprise that the Kapoor sisters seized the moment and clicked a picture with the powerful lady!
Karisma later posted the picture on her Instagram handle and captioned it as, “With the dynamic @officialhilaryclinton #womanpower#indiatodayconclave2018.”
Speaking about US president, Donald Trump, and his election strategies Clinton said: “American didn’t deserve a president like Trump”. She even mentioned how she ran an election campaign based on the conventional lines and spoke about serious issues; While he behaved as if it was a TV reality show. In a hilarious comment, Clinton compared herself as a mother asking children to eat spinach for health and her counterpart as a guy asking kids to eat junk food and ice cream.
Kareena Kapoor, at the conclave, spoke about her next big release, Veere Di Wedding and took the opportunity to address the constant paparazzi surrounding her son, Taimur.
“I do not like the fact that everyday Taimur’s moves are monitored, pictures are out, what he is doing, where he is going, what he is wearing, discussing his hairstyle. He is just a 14-month-old. I don’t know how to stop it. You are just following him around,”, She further added, “I think he is getting used to it because, off late, if I compare his pictures, he has started posing.”
Speaking about the choice of her son’s name she said, “There was a lot of trolling but there was an immense amount of support as well,” “Saif asked me if it’s a boy, do I want to change the name from Taimur? He even told me to change the name to ‘Faiz’, as it is more poetic and romantic. I was like no, ‘If it is a boy, my son is going to be a fighter, he will be called ‘Taimur’. Taimur means iron and I will produce ironman. I am proud to have named him Taimur,”
Karisma cleared the air around the myth that the ‘bahu’s’ of Kapoor family are restricted to work. She said, “I think it is a myth that Kapoor bahus do not work. Whether it is my mother or Neetu aunty, they made a choice of not working after marriage and having children. “On the other hand, Jennifer (wife of Shashi Kapoor) aunty and Geeta (wife of Shammi Kapoor) aunty worked throughout, even after marriage. So, we all practiced our choice,”.
