Kareena Kapoor Khan wore a bikini in front of her saasuma and THIS was her reaction!
New mum Kareena Kapoor Khan has a warm relationship with her saasuma but what happened when she wore a bikini in front of her? Read on to know.
Kareena Kapoor Khan has always shared a warm relationship with saasuma Sharmila Tagore.
She considers her mum-in-law the 'eternal begum' and the one woman who she looks upto.
"I look up to her in every way"
“For me, my mother-in-law will always be the eternal begum, a career-oriented woman who started a family, who ran the house, looked after three children but yet worked in the biggest commercial successes as well as some great serious cinema. She kind of always tried to balance everything,"Kareena recently shared.
"To me she still is and still looks super gorgeous. Right from the beginning till now, I can’t take my eyes off her. I look up to her in every way, so for me she will always be that,” she added.
In fact, Tagore is also never reluctant to voice her love for her doting bahu Kareena.
Even during her pregnancy the 72-year-old grandmum couldn't help but share how she felt about her daughter-in-law.
“Kareena has been so lovely. She has carried her pregnancy effortlessly and gracefully, kisiki nazar na lag jaye. She is enjoying every moment of her pregnancy. She is dressing up, going out and being so natural and beautiful about it,” she said.
"We don't live like traditional saas bahus"
But as much as they love each other, people cannot help but wonder if there ever are any tiffs between this famous saas-bahu duo. And one of the reporters even asked Kareena about her mother-in-law's open-mindedness.
Because while many saasumas in India still ask their daughters-in-law to dress more 'conservatively' Sharmila Tagore on the other hand loves everything Kareena wears, even a bikini! Yes, that's correct.
"I wore a bikini in front of my mother-in-law"
Kareena recently shared that mum-in-law Sharmila is just like her own mother and she never minds anything she wears and that includes skimpy bikinis.
“When I am with the family, I am treated like a daughter. Sharmila ji treats me like a daughter. We are not in the 1900s. We don't live like traditional saas bahus. We just went to the Maldives for a holiday where I wore a bikini in front of my mother-in-law. It's normal. I don't understand why it's such a big thing. I would do the same with my mother,” Kareena clarified.
"She is like a super woman"
The new mum even added that her mum-in-law constantly inspires and asks her to work and often compliments her on her dressing style.
“She is so amazing, she is always like ‘Work, you should work’ and whenever I wear a dress, she is like ‘You look amazing in a dress.’ She is so, a woman of today. She is like a super woman," she shares.
Well, it is pretty clear that Kareena has managed to accept her in-laws as easily as they have been able to accept her. But this acceptance and mutual respect doesn't come that easy.
Sometimes you have to work towards it. And if you're wondering how, here are a few steps.
- Be true to yourself: This trait goes a long way in not only breaking the ice, but also in further cementing the relationship. Your in-laws will be there for the rest of your life, so it's better to be who you actually are in front of them. Be honest with your ideas and thoughts and do not lead them on into believing that you're somebody else.
- Let them know you value them: After all your in-laws are your spouse' parents and they deserve equal respect and appreciation as your own parents. If they have done something for you, there is no harm in appreciating their effort and letting them know you acknowledge their good deed.
- It's all about give and take: Let's not deny the fact that a marriage needs a lot of work and not only between two partners, but also between two families. So either way, both parties will have to adjust for the marriage to be a success. Therefore, it's a good idea to adjust and give in wherever needed.
