Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is marking her debut as a radio show presenter, has said that people advised her against getting married as it would end her career.
The actress is happily married to actor Saif Ali Khan and recently she launched What Women Want with Kareena Kapoor Khan on Ishq 104.8 FM.
Asked what she has been wanting as a woman all her life, she said, "I have always been someone who wanted to follow her heart. When I was getting married, people told me not to get married because my career would end after that. I was told that no producer will take me in his films and I will not get any work."
"But after marriage, I have been working so much that sometimes I say I don't want to work this much."
The 38-year-old actress went on to say that she has always been a person who has done things that she has wanted to do.
"I don’t listen to what people have to say. I am doing more work than earlier, I would like to continue and I hope that, I will always follow my heart,” she added.
What made the Veere Di Wedding star venture into radio?
"When Ishq 104.8 FM came to me for a show, I was also surprised because I have never explored radio in my life. So, I was very nervous, but when I heard the concept of the show and found out that the show would be about 'What Women Want', I realised that this is the perfect time for me to dive into something like this."
Kareena added that it’s high time women speak out.
"It’s an unknown territory, but I think it's a territory that we need to speak about and it's a topic that we need to address. I am glad that they (Ishq 104.8 FM) think that I was perfect for it; I have been opinionated all my life so, I think it's time that women should speak out too. I think it's going to be a fabulous show," she said.
"I am here to talk about women and I am here because I am a proud woman so, I would love to represent all us gorgeous ladies out there," she concluded.
