Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan, the power couple of Bollywood, are also proud parents to sons Taimur Ali Khan and Jeh. In a recent interview, Bebo said that she teaches her elder son Tim, who is going to turn 5 this December, the importance of gender equality. She says it is important for her boys to be aware of the fact that in their house, their mother is equal to their father.
In an interview with Film Companion, Kareena spoke about the importance of both her sons knowing that their parents are equal. “Well in the case of Tim and Jeh, I think the idea is that they see me go to work even now. Like when, every time I put on my shoes, Taimur asks ‘where are you going?’ My answer is ‘I’m going to work or I’m going to shoot or I’m going for an event or I’m going for a meeting because amma has to work’. So, abba works and so does amma. I think growing up looking at the fact that in this house, it’s not just the man who does things, we both do things equally,” she said.
She added, “We’re both bringing food to the table, we’re both very clear on the fact that we’re both working as a couple. We’re dependent on each other emotionally, and financially we share. And if my boys grow up knowing that their mother has the capability and demands that kind of respect in her home and gets it. Goes out to work, works hard, comes home so that they can have a good life. I think that’s half the battle won. It’s important for the boys to know that women are equal to men. A mother is their father’s equal.”
On the work front, Kareena will be next seen in Laal Singh Chaddha alongside Aamir Khan.
