Kareena Kapoor Khan learnt about her first pregnancy after she signed Rhea Kapoor’s ‘Veere Di Wedding’. The actress had asked the producer to cast some other young girl to replace her. However, Rhea was firm on not letting Kareena go.
Rhea and director Shashanka Ghosh even decided to change the script by showing her character six months pregnant so that Kareena could shoot with her real baby bump on screen. But the makers had to go back to their original script since there was no maternity insurance in India for actresses.
She told a news portal in a throwback interview that she agreed to act in the film even when she was pregnant and they incorporated the whole pregnancy scene but it was pretty sad. The actress added that she told Rhea about her pregnancy right after she told her parents.
Rhea actually waited for Kareena to come back after her maternity leave and then they shot for the film. It also starred Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania in lead roles. The movie received positive reviews from the audience and the critics alike.
Meanwhile, Bebo is currently pregnant with her second child and is set to deliver anytime this month. On the work front, she will next be seen in ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ co-starring Aamir Khan in the lead role.
